  • Jayde’s death splits SA along racial lines - Crime & Courts | IOL News

    The murder of Port Elizabeth teacher Jayde Panayiotou has whipped up a race storm on social media. Panayiotou’s killing sent shockwaves through the country this week after police released an identikit of 31-year-old Thando Siyoli, listed as a suspect in the murder of the 28-year-old Uitenhage teacher. A Facebook group was subsequently set up calling for the death penalty for the killer, but as soon as Panayiotou’s husband, Christopher, was confirmed as another suspect in her killing, the page announced that it would be changing its name to “Justice for Jayde Panayiotou – Change for South Africa”. “Is it because the face of the criminal has changed that we no longer endorse the death penalty,” one comment read.

    The coffin carrying the body of the man initially identified as Emmanuel Sithole was placed next to where his stall had stood - and where the fatal attack had started. The images taken of Josias as he was beaten and knifed on the streets of Alexandra, Johannesburg, became the rallying point for many South Africans and government agencies during the recent wave of xenophobic violence, even as the Presidency denied the killing was xenophobic. The South African government instead deemed his murder "an act of criminality". On Monday, President Jacob Zuma said he was in the country illegally and that his real name was Josias.

Jackson compared his spats with Mayweather to a married couple taking out frustrations over other things on each other.

  • South Africa: Xenophobia and Barking At the Wrong Horse - a Response to Professor Mufuka

    Indeed, Professor Ken Mufuka, in an article entitled: "Xenophobia - Barking at the wrong tree" sought to borrow Brilliant Mhlanga's argument that Zimbabweans are probably looking at xenophobia with a jaundiced eye by asserting that before Zimbabweans condemn South Africa they ought to look at their own history and apportion blame where it belongs. By its very nature, xenophobia, is an extremely complex issue that requires sober and rational minds to appreciate its true causes. South Africa is a melting pot but no shared view has been established as to who should be in or out of the pot.
