  • White settlers never stole any land from Africans: iLIVE

    Black Africans never owned any land. Black Africans NEVER owned any land. Who "disadvantaged" the 'black' people of the interior in Southern Africa before the (supposed) belligerent 'white' settlers moved inland in the mid 19th century..? As certainly, what the 'settlers' found was not a hugely advanced infrastructure, deep mines, airports, vast libraries of written works, grandiose institutions of learning, etc. No, as little as 170 years ago they found masses of black people (indigenous to the Southern tip of Africa, The San) living on the fringes of the stone age.

It’s unclear whether Mandla Masango, another player facing an uncertain future, will commit himself to Amakhosi this week.

  • Asylum seekers get cold shoulder

    The Department of Home Affairs has released for public comment a new application form that requires asylum seekers to specify how much money they have in South Africa and how they intend to support themselves here. An asylum seeker who fled his country is unlikely to have taken any of this information with him or to be able to contact a previous employer," said Roni Amit, a senior researcher at the African Centre for Migration and Society. South Africa is obliged to protect refugees in terms of the 1951 UN Convention on Refugees.

  • Nudism in full swing in KZN as opposition backs down

    After bringing in police to arrest nudists when the province's first legal nudist beach opened in April, threatening to lodge a complaint with the public protector and appeal to the Hibiscus Coast Municipality to change its approval, the opposition group has "vanished". The Concerned Citizens Group, which claimed to represent thousands of residents in towns along the province's South Coast, has not "put a stop" to the nudist beach, as it had planned to do. "It seems as if all those who were opposing the beach have ridden into the sunset," said SA National Naturists Association chairman Serge Pavlovic yesterday. The group's spokesman, the Rev Mike Effanga, could not be reached for comment.

  • 'We've found another Earth'

    Not only is this planet in the "Goldilocks zone" - where life can exist because it is neither too hot nor too cold to support liquid water - its star looks like an older cousin of our sun, the space agency said. Known as Kepler 452b, the planet was detected by the agency's Kepler Space Telescope, which has hunted for worlds like ours since 2009. "Kepler 452b is orbiting a close cousin of our sun, but one that is 1.5 billion years older," it said. If the planet is rocky, and the scientists believe that it has a better than even chance of being just that, then it could be in the midst of a fearful scenario, as the heat from its dying star evaporates Kepler 452b's lakes and oceans.
