    SA's newest political party

    Durban - Two former EFF leaders in KwaZulu-Natal have formed a new political party, allegedly after consulting former president Jacob Zuma for advice.

    WATCH: A morning on set with Babes Wodumo

    Cape Town - I’d just come off my first segment on the Expresso Morning Show on Monday, where I had discussed the dramatic World Cup final between France and Croatia. Alongside me was former Bafana Bafana coach Gordon Igesund, and presenter Graeme Richards couldn’t hide his disappointment that the World Cup was over. What were we going to watch now? But as I waited for my next segment, I saw a group of guys who were all wearing the same clothing from a sportswear sponsor. I wasn’t sure who they were, but it didn’t take long to figure it all out - the one and only Babes Wodumo was in the house! I had seen on the programme schedule earlier that she was going to be on the show, but there was great

    Cassper Nyovest sees no problem with Mr Price jeans

    France star Mbappe to donate millions in World Cup earnings to charity

    CAPE TOWN - Paris Saint Germain forward, Kylian Mbappe, is set to donate millions to charity after winning the World Cup with France.  Mbappe pledged to donate his match salary to a French charity called Premiers de Cordee, which helps disabled children by hosting sporting activities, at the start of the tournament.  However, the size of the donation has more than doubled as a result of France’s victory over Croatia in Sunday’s final. The 19-year-old has reportedly earned $29 000 for each of the seven games he played in Russia, which would amount to $203 000 alone.  But Mbappe and his teammates will also earn $350 000 each as a bonus for winning the tournament, and the Laureus Sport for Good
