  • Zimbabwe: 'I Felt Like a Prisoner'

    SUNDAY Chidzambwa says he felt like a prisoner on death row for the three years he carried the Asiagate ban load on his shoulders and is relishing the freedom he has been given and will try to use it to make another mark on the domestic football landscape. The country's most successful football coach was this week cleared by ZIFA to return to work on the local scene after his ban, for life, for his alleged involvement in the Asiagate match-fixing saga was lifted by the association. Chidzambwa made history as the first coach to take the Warriors to the Nations Cup finals, ending the country's 23-year wait for a dance with the heavyweights of African football, by guiding the senior national team to the continent's biggest football festival. It underlined his status as the best Zimbabwean football coach of all-time given that he had, five years earlier, also guided Dynamos to the final of the African Champions League only to lose to Ivorian giants, ASEC Mimosas, in controversial fashion.

  • ANC to blame for bad work ethic

    Enough with the "South Africans are lazy" rant. There is merit in the argument that South Africa's work ethic leaves much to be desired when measured on labour productivity compared with other countries. South Africans want to work, they want to be self-reliant, they want to be proud of the legacy they are creating for their children. When Kenya got its independence in December 1963, the incoming independence government popularised the slogan "uhuru na kazi" (freedom and hard work).

  • Tesla unveils battery to ‘transform energy infrastructure’

    Electric car pioneer Tesla unveiled a "home battery" Thursday which its founder Elon Musk said would help change the "entire energy infrastructure of the world". The Tesla Powerwall can store power from solar panels, from the electricity grid at night when it is typically cheaper, and provide a secure backup in the case of a power outage. In theory the device, which typically would fit on the wall of a garage or inside a house, could make solar-powered homes completely independent of the traditional energy grid. "The goal is complete transformation of the entire energy infrastructure of the world, to completely sustainable zero carbon," Mr Musk told reporters shortly before unveiling the Powerwall in a stylish warehouse space outside Los Angeles.
