• Watch: Another embarrassing error for SABC as presenter caught 'working out'

    The SABC has been caught off guard once again.

When the presenter realises she is back on air, she sheepishly stops gesturing, unsure of what to do. This is the latest blooper after a dagga activist smoked live on air and an experienced anchor became aggressive with the spokesperson of the EFF. Hat tip News24

  • Zimbabwe: Mugabe Blasts Mandela - And Speaks on Xenophobia

    Admitting he was spewing "poison", President Robert Mugabe on Wednesday blamed unemployment in South Africa for the vicious xenophobic attacks against foreigners there, including Zimbabweans.

South African National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) CEO Nazir Alli is pleased with the new dispensation and has characterised it as a good move to restore Sanral’s credibility.
