  • The mom behind Krejcir's failed escape bid

    Serbian hit men at R6-million each, a move to buy floor plans of the Zonderwater maximum-security prison and having a helicopter on standby had all formed part of the elaborate R25-million operation to spring Krejcir from jail in South Africa. The Sunday Times has seen correspondence between an intelligence source in Prague and forensic investigator Paul O'Sullivan in which the source states: "... Radovan must escape, irrespectably [sic] what it takes or how many lives it costs ... their mafia code of ethics clearly demands and orders them to do so ... otherwise Nadezda loses her status in the Czech/Serbian mafia circles and the entire Krejcirova family are permanently marked as failures or weaklings

    JOHANNESBURG magistrate Colleen Collis’s interview for judicial appointment may well be a Judicial Service Commission (JSC) first: she will be interviewed by someone she previously found guilty of hate speech when JSC hearings to fill six posts in the Gauteng division of the High Court begin in Cape Town Monday. As the JSC is made up of politicians and lawyers, candidates often face questions from those they have ruled against. But a personal finding against a commissioner is highly unusual. In 2010, Ms Collis, as an Equality Court magistrate, found Economic Freedom Fighters leader and JSC commissioner Julius Malema guilty of hate speech.

  • Are you schooled or are you educated?

     Those of you who have had schooling followed the rules of the school, attended your classes, did your homework, wrote the tests, passed, and received a certificate of some kind. When you fell out of line, and came late or missed an assignment deadline, you were punished for this bad behaviour. You were, in a sense, institutionalised. But you can be schooled and still be a barbarian. You can frame and hang your certificates against a wall and still be uneducated. You can attend many years of formal schooling and still be reckless. I see this all the time. School, in this sense, is therefore not primary school or high school; it is all forms of institutionalisation, including college and university,
