• New SA visa regulations have airlines in a frenzy

    International airline Virgin Atlantic says it expects to have to turn some foreign passengers away at airports when new regulations come in on Monday, and that airlines are going to suffer financially as a result. From next week, people travelling in and out of South Africa will be required to have unabridged birth certificates for the children travelling with them, and to have affidavits from parents if they're not with the children. The travel industry has strongly criticised the plans, but Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba has promised they will be implemented this time around. Virgin Atlantic country manager Liezl Gericke says they're still battling to explain these rules to international markets.

With United safe in fourth place in the Barclays Premier League and one qualifying tie away from a return to the Champions League next season, there has been an air of satisfaction around Old Trafford as Van Gaal’s debut campaign drew to a close. In the end, United made it over the line with something to spare. United’s tally of 62 league goals — two fewer than under David Moyes — is the club’s second lowest total in the 23 years of the Premier League.

The source of the outrage was a report by a local daily claiming Mugabe last week admitted to politburo colleagues that he owes expelled former Zanu PF Mashonaland East chairman Ray Kaukonde about $30 million.

  • South Africa: The Brazilian Who Thinks White South Africans Should Get Asylum in the EU Because Ethnic Cleansing

    More than 25,000 people have supported a Change.org petition for the European Union to allow white South Africans citizenship in Europe, because white people could die from ethnic cleansing in South Africa at any moment. The man who started the petition is Rodrigo de Campos - who is based in Brazil, but concerned for the well-being of white people in South Africa, Namibia and Zimbabwe. "Many white South Africans today live in poverty and squalor as a consequence of the ANC government's Black Economic Empowerment," de Campos said his petition, which alleged that more than 4,000 white farmers had been slain in the country, a claim that has been thoroughly debunked by Africa Check. De Campos - who blames the Economic Freedom Fighters, the African National Congress and mysterious "individual anti-white aggressors" for the alleged deadly circumstances white South Africans find themselves in - wrote that his philosophy to return white people to their European motherlands was inspired by Israel's policy to allow Jewish people the right of return to Israel.
