  • Time to forget about Masilela - IOL Sport

    BackpagePix It would appear that Tsepo Masilela just does not want to play for Bafana Bafana anymore. Johannesburg - It would appear that Tsepo Masilela just does not want to play for Bafana Bafana anymore. Why else would the Kaizer Chiefs left-back continue not to honour call-ups to the national team? Arguably one of the best left-backs in the country and probably the most experienced of the lot, Masilela is the kind of player Shakes Mashaba needs if South Africa are to get back to being among the continent’s best.

  • Adebayor waiting for sign from God to leave Spurs - Cape Times

    Emmanuel Adebayor killed off any chance of playing football again before January after rejecting a Tottenham Hotspur pay-off and turning down a host of summer moves on the advice of his pastor, reports The Telegraph. The future of Adebayor has been one of the sagas of the summer and Telegraph Sport revealed that he not only demanded huge money to leave Spurs, but also pulled out of a move to Aston Villa because he claimed he needed a sign from God. Tottenham were desperate to offload Adebayor this summer and made the striker a deadline-day offer to cancel the remaining year of his £100 000-a-week contract, so that he could join a new club as a free agent.

  • Is there no end to Zimbabwe’s decline? - Business News | IOL Business

    Zimbabwe’s decision to scrap the local currency in 2009 helped end hyperinflation as it cut off the government’s ability to print money to pay debts. With Zimbabwe adopting the US dollar and currencies such as the South African rand as legal tender, authorities have no ability to boost money supply in the economy. “The macro-economy is under enormous pressure,” Joseph Rohm, a fund manager who helps oversee about $1.3 billion in African investments in countries other than South Africa for Investec Asset Management, said by phone from Cape Town on August 31.

The best views are seen from the Cupola, an observation deck module attached to the ISS in 2010 and comprising seven windows.

  • Judges pepper Vodacom counsel on SMS idea

    JUDGES of the Constitutional Court quizzed Vodacom on Tuesday on whether it was just that the company had reaped billions from its former employee’s idea without rewarding him for it. The court is the last stop for Nkosana Makate, who has fought a seven-year battle to get compensated for his "Please Call Me" idea, which allows cellphone users to send free call-back text messages, and which continues to be a money-spinner for network service providers. Last year, Mr Makate lost out in the High Court in Johannesburg, which found that while he had entered into a contract with former Vodacom director and product development head Phillip Geissler over the idea, the company could only be liable if it had authorised Mr Geissler to contract on its behalf. In July last year, Judge Phillip Coppin said Mr Makate had not made a sufficient case of "ostensible authority" — he had not shown that Vodacom had acted in such a way that he was entitled to rely on the agreement with Mr Geissler.

    Transformation was an issue of such national importance that the Agency for New Agenda (ANA) deserved to be assisted by senior counsel in its bid to stop South Africa from competing in the Rugby World Cup, a High Court Judge in Pretoria has said. The small political party not only wants the court to stop the National rugby team from competing in the World Cup in England and Wales later this month, but also wants the players and officials from the Sports and Recreation Department and SA Rugby Union to hand in their passports. The party wants the court to order the Executive to establish a judicial commission of enquiry into the lack of transformation in South African rugby.
