  • Foreigners remark puts king in a fix

    ZULU King Goodwill Zwelithini's call for all foreign nationals to be kicked out of the country has landed him in hot water with the SA Human Rights Commission. The commission said yesterday it had received a formal complaint against the Zulu monarch. Zwelithini reportedly said at the weekend that the fact that certain countries played a role in the country's struggle for liberation "should not be used as an excuse to create a situation where foreigners are allowed to inconvenience locals". Zwelithini's comments have earned him widespread condemnation from various organisations and on social media.

  • Ex-dictator vs fortunate son in Nigeria’s presidential vote

    The two main candidates in Nigeria’s tense presidential election on Saturday cut sharply different profiles: an ex-military ruler who once cracked down on indiscipline and a zoologist rarely seen without his stylish fedora. Incumbent Goodluck Jonathan, 57, is a Christian from the Niger Delta oil region in the south while Muhammadu Buhari, 72, is a Muslim from the north and a retired major general. An ethnic Ijaw from a family of canoe makers, Mr Jonathan’s rise to the top of his country’s ruthless political world has been described as accidental. Fortune certainly seems to have favoured Mr Jonathan throughout his political career, as his first name would imply.

  • Germanwings pilot hid health condition that would have banned flying

    The pilot who crashed an aircraft in the French Alps had received a sick note from doctors showing he suffered a health condition that would have prevented him flying the day of the crash, which he apparently hid from his employer, German prosecutors said. French prosecutors believe Andreas Lubitz, 27, locked himself alone in the cockpit of the Germanwings Airbus A320 on Tuesday and deliberately steered it into a mountain, killing all 150 people on board. "Documents with medical contents were confiscated that point towards an existing illness and corresponding treatment by doctors," said the prosecutors’ office in Duesseldorf, where the co-pilot lived and where the doomed flight from Barcelona was heading. "The fact there are sick notes saying he was unable to work, among other things, that were found torn up, which were recent and even from the day of the crime, support the assumption based on the preliminary examination that the deceased hid his illness from his employer and his professional colleagues," the German prosecutors said.

Earlier on, the journalists had refused to partake in a prayer that had been requested by a Steward Bank staffer contending that Econet officials, police and Deputy Sheriff officers had not opened with a prayer when they invaded The Source.

    India's notoriously volatile fans showed rare maturity in accepting the end of their team's reign as world champions after Thursday's semi-final defeat against co-hosts Australia in Sydney. The defending champions struggled during their build-up, losing a four-test series 2-0 against Australia and then failing to win a single match in the following tri-series, also involving England. The Hindustan Times newspaper summed up the mood of the nation with their front page headline which read "Heartbreak, but young team does India proud". "Overall, quite happy with where we were," said India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, while addressing reporters at the Sydney Cricket Ground after the 95-run loss.
