  • Axing from Uzalo 'a blessing', says actor Bonga Dlamini

    Failure to land a role in the new season of SABC1 drama series Uzalo and the creative industry's inconsistent income has prompted one of President Jacob Zuma's nephews to venture into selling luxury leather bags. Bonga Dlamini was the star of the first season of one of SABC1's most-watched drama series. He played the character of Mkhonto Xulu, a troublesome and murderous brother of Gxabhashe (Mpumelelo Bhulose), leader of a notorious car theft syndicate in KwaMashu, KwaZulu-Natal.

  • Africa: 'The World' Praying That Trump Should Not Win U.S. Elections

    American politics matter to everyone in the world. No one can ever ignore what is taking place across the Atlantic, even if you are in the Indian ocean. But it is enough to show that if Ted Cruz on Thursday strongly defended his refusal to endorse Donald Trump during his Republican National Convention speech, who else is expected to approve. We learn that even the Bush family had declined to comment on Trump. Some Americans despite trusting the Electoral College still keep their fingers crossed that Trump should not be elected. It is obvious that he has enough delegates to vote for him though some political analysts and self styled commentators think that his chances of being elected are near

He was referring to the ANC’s use of veterans such as Ahmed Kathrada and Kgalema Motlanthe to campaign for the party in the upcoming local government elections. “They are so desperate, they even went and asked Winnie Mandela to endorse them. “Can you really ask your own party member to endorse you?” he said.

  • South Africa: SAA-BnP Cancellation a Ruse to Enrich Myeni's Cronies

    It should come as no surprise that the Chairperson of SAA, Ms. Dudu Myeni, is incapable of doing what is right and what is in fact best for the airline. Now we know from today's Sunday Times, that the cancellation of the BnP contract was just a charade by the SAA board chair and board in an attempt to look good, whilst in the background Myeni and her cronies were planning to pay R 49.9 million to BnP for doing nothing. The directors, led by Ms Dudu Myeni, are not only recklessly allowing SAA to continue to trade at a loss and apparently knowing that the entity is "financially distressed" as defined in the Companies Act but they are participating in the looting of a further R 49.9 million from SAA and thus from service delivery that is so desperately needed.

    A growing number of other war veterans have joined the Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans’ Association in calling Mugabe, 92, a “dictator”, demanding he quit and vowing not to support him in the next elections in 2018 if he does not. The association also criticised the government’s recent attacks against peaceful protesters who spoke out about the economy and against the police via social media and conducted a stayaway three weeks ago. Mugabe was facing “an endgame of tragic dimensions”, Zimbabwe weekly The Independent‘s editor Dumisani Muleya said on Friday. On Saturday the governing Zanu-PF struck back at the war veterans, calling them “treasonous” and “traitorous.” Vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa, who is also a war veteran, delivered a more muted response.

  • Nats joined the ANC too ... don't forget that – Mpofu

    Over the weekend, President Jacob Zuma again asserted his belief that the Democratic Alliance (DA) could not be separated from its “parent party”, the apartheid National Party. That belief appears to be based on the fact that the Democratic Party (DP) went into a coalition with the New National Party (NNP) in 2000. NNP leader Marthinus van Schalkwyk helped to form the Democratic Alliance in the merger between the NNP and Tony Leon’s DP, but that didn’t last long. Van Schalkwyk and other members of his party crossed over to the ANC in 2001. In so doing, they reduced the DA’s 52.5% outright majority win in Cape Town and handed power to the ANC in the city and the Western Cape. During the 2002 floor-crossing

Out of the current 54 African countries only 32 had gained independence at that time. And so the question of independence was on their minds; but even those that had attained it had a plethora of problems that needed to be confronted. In all, there was the realisation that Africa's problems were intertwined and that mutual solidarity was essential. There was a term for this unity of purpose: Pan-Africanism.
