  • THE INSIDER: Spousal communication of the highest order?

    IT WAS gut-check time in Parliament last week when Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) MPs took aim at President Jacob Zuma for "getting his employee", State Security Minister David Mahlobo, to evict Zuma’s estranged wife Nompumelelo Ntuli-Zuma from his Nkandla home. During a session for motions without notice, a raging EFF member likened Zuma’s treatment of the first lady to abuse and called him a coward for acting against traditional norms and common human decency. The Insider is tempted to wonder if it was just a matter of delegating personal assistant duties.

  • Noah delivers slick act at Edinburgh fest - Tonight News

    Trevor Noah made an immediate impact with his debut Edinburgh show, The Racist, in 2012, but has only occasionally performed in the UK since. Earlier this year, it was announced that the South African will succeed Jon Stewart as presenter of the influential satirical news programme The Daily Show on Comedy Central, a post he takes up next month.  He opens by telling us he plays a drinking game when in Edinburgh - “the whitest place I have ever been” but, as it involves having a drink every time he spots another person of colour, he starts and ends the night sober. Noah, 31, was born in Johannesburg in the Apartheid era to a black South African mother and a white Swiss father, so was termed “illegal”, and has lived for the past four years in the US, where, he once said, his accent - African but decidedly not African American - freaks people out.
