  • Nigeria: Is Boko Haram on the run? | Daily Maverick

    Shortly after the anniversary of the kidnapping of the Chibok girls – the incident which sparked the #BringBackOurGirls campaign and put the international spotlight on the Nigerian government’s failure to deal with growing Boko Haram threat – the Nigerian army announced a series of successful operations against the Islamist militant threat. The most recent was on Friday, when 234 women and children were rescued from captivity in the Sambisa Forest, a Boko Haram stronghold in north-eastern Nigeria. Incidentally, none of the Chibok girls are thought to be among the rescued (although the fixation on them, often to the exclusion of most other Boko Haram victims, continues to baffle). Why is Nigeria suddenly enjoying the upper hand?

  • South Africa: Bitter Boy Who Shames His Father and His People

    President Zuma's son Edward is xenophobic and racist. Like the disgarceful Zulu King Zwelithini he supports, whose reckless utterances sparked the attacks on foreginers, Edward continues Cecil Rhodes' odious legacy of dividing Africans. It is quite overwhelming to see the grown son of the most powerful man in South Africa act like a child that grew up in a home without discipline or education. Today, we can say that Edward Zuma is xenophobic, even though he himself was born in Swaziland.

  • Yup, 2152km on just 43 litres - IOL Motoring

    This Peugeot 208 1.6 turbodiesel set a new long-distance consumption record. Belchamp, France - Hyper-milers eat your hearts out, this little 208 has, according to Peugeot, just set a new long-distance fuel consumption record by covering 2152km on just 43 litres of diesel, less than a tank in this car's case. The feat was achieved with a perfectly standard car in the form of Peugeot's 1.6-litre BlueHDi 100 S&S model and was done under the supervision of French Type Approval Authority, UTAC. Well, not in the real world really, but to a European society that's becoming increasingly obsessed with unrealistic 'official' fuel consumption figures that were obtained in a lab, Peugeot does at least have a nice little number to brag about in adverts.

Baxter has won two league titles in three seasons since joining Amakhosi, as well as the 2014 Nedbank Cup and the 2014 MTN8. The South African Football Association are said to be interested in Baxter for the role of technical director, while Moroccan giants Raja Casablanca, who knocked Chiefs out of this year’s Caf Champions League, are also reported to have enquired about his services. It is now obvious that Josta Dladla and Siyabonga Nkosi will not be part of the team next season.

  • Zimbabwe: Donors Push for Tsvangirai, Mujuru Coalition

    OPPOSITION MDC-T leader Morgan Tsvangirai is reportedly grappling with a quandary after donors made clear he either joins up with former vice president Joice Mujuru or risk losing financial support. Western donors are reportedly frustrated with Tsvangirai's remarkable success in failing to dislodge President Robert Mugabe, now 91 years old, since the formation of the MDC in 1999. The former prime minister had already been hit with financial sanctions by traditional donors after he came a cropper again in the 2013 vote. Following the MDC-T's shellacking by Zanu PF in those elections which the opposition leader insists were rigged by Mugabe and his party, donors reportedly turned to the Tendai Biti-led MDC Renewal initiative.
