    South Africa became one of the fastest-developing African countries after attaining democracy, which made it a preferred destination for millions of job-seeking foreign nationals. The imagination does not have to stretch too far: creating a South African identity requires some illegal assistance and a little corruption from Home Affairs officials. Sindi Gumbo, (not his real name) a 55-year-old Zimbabwean national, says she entered South Africa illegally for the first time in 2012. “I was assisted through the process of obtaining a South African ID by a middle-aged man who seemed to ease in and out of a Johannesburg Home Affairs as if it were his own personal property.

  • Holly Madison Reveals The Hell That Is Playboy Mansion Life

    Holly Madison decided to write a book when she was excelling in her career — starring in the long-running Peepshow in Las Vegas at Planet Hollywood, as well as her own E! “Women would come up to me, and say, ‘Don’t you miss the mansion?’ Or, ‘I’m sorry Hef didn’t marry you,’” Madison recalled during a recent interview with BuzzFeed News at her home on a tree-lined Los Angeles street. It’s safe to say that after the revelations in Madison’s just-released Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a Former Playboy Bunny, she has successfully squashed any such questions in the future. With little preamble — Madison and her collaborator, Leslie Bruce, know what the reader came for — Down the Rabbit Hole tells the story of Madison’s time with Hefner from 2001 to 2008 and its aftermath.

In self-defence, the army claims, the arresting soldiers shot Mahao in his right arm and then took him to hospital, where he later died "due to over-bleeding".

    In her weekly newsletter posted on the Democratic Alliance's website, she said the plan Zuma presented on Thursday disguised his real intentions, which would benefit his network of loyal cadres. "It is an insider enrichment scheme disguised beneath the mantle of the so-called 'developmental state', a word which in ANC-speak, means precisely the opposite of what the English language intended it to," Zille said. Zuma's nine-point plan included resolving the energy crisis, adding value to the country's mineral wealth, and encouraging private sector investment. Focusing on Zuma's call for the energy crisis to be resolved, Zille said this was what South Africa needed, but the African National Congress was not putting any plan into action.

  • Judge Masipa got it right – on the law

    Masipa cleared the athlete of murdering his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, instead finding him guilty of culpable homicide and of one firearm-related charge. This was because Masipa found that the state had failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Pistorius had the necessary intention to murder Steenkamp. Despite finding the athlete was a “very poor witness”, Masipa accepted that Pistorius’s version – that he genuinely believed there was an intruder in his house – could reasonably possibly be true, which is all that was necessary for an acquittal on murder. Masipa’s verdict has created a ruckus for a number of reasons, with the most common criticism relating to her application of dolus eventualis.
