• Zimbabwe: Zuma, Khama Corner Mugabe

    PRESIDENTS Jacob Zuma of South Africa and Botswana's Ian Khama angrily clashed with their Zimbabwean counterpart, President Robert Mugabe over xenophobia in South Africa, with the two demanding that instead of blaming their neighbour, Zimbabwe and other Sadc states must fix their broken economies to curb the rising tide of immigration. While Sadc leaders met for an extraordinary summit in Harare on Wednesday to discuss an industrialisation strategy and roadmap, the major highlight of the meeting was the recent xenophobic violence and killings in South Africa which raised a storm of debate and anger across the region.

  • Jayde’s death splits SA along racial lines - Crime & Courts | IOL News

    The murder of Port Elizabeth teacher Jayde Panayiotou has whipped up a race storm on social media. Panayiotou’s killing sent shockwaves through the country this week after police released an identikit of 31-year-old Thando Siyoli, listed as a suspect in the murder of the 28-year-old Uitenhage teacher. A Facebook group was subsequently set up calling for the death penalty for the killer, but as soon as Panayiotou’s husband, Christopher, was confirmed as another suspect in her killing, the page announced that it would be changing its name to “Justice for Jayde Panayiotou – Change for South Africa”. “Is it because the face of the criminal has changed that we no longer endorse the death penalty,” one comment read.

    The coffin carrying the body of the man initially identified as Emmanuel Sithole was placed next to where his stall had stood - and where the fatal attack had started. The images taken of Josias as he was beaten and knifed on the streets of Alexandra, Johannesburg, became the rallying point for many South Africans and government agencies during the recent wave of xenophobic violence, even as the Presidency denied the killing was xenophobic. The South African government instead deemed his murder "an act of criminality". On Monday, President Jacob Zuma said he was in the country illegally and that his real name was Josias.

    The writer says the leaders of Nigeria and South Africa could have offered olive branches after the Lagos church disaster and the xenophobic violence. The biggest players owe it to the rest of Africa to set the tone to safeguard stability and progress, writes Victor Kgomoeswana. Johannesburg - I read with relief that “South Africa and Nigeria have pledged to continue to work together for the good of their people and the continent as a whole”. Before seeing this article on SANews.gov.za, my blood pressure was soaring at the sight of Africa’s two biggest economies fussing and fighting like delinquent spouses.

  • ANC to blame for bad work ethic

    Enough with the "South Africans are lazy" rant. There is merit in the argument that South Africa's work ethic leaves much to be desired when measured on labour productivity compared with other countries. South Africans want to work, they want to be self-reliant, they want to be proud of the legacy they are creating for their children. When Kenya got its independence in December 1963, the incoming independence government popularised the slogan "uhuru na kazi" (freedom and hard work).

The four coaches allegedly contacted the bank with murmurs of discontent and challenged the financial institution for giving them "peanuts while they are the ones doing all the hard work".
