    THE opposition MDC-T party's leader has challenged President Robert Mugabe to "bring on the military and we meet in the streets", warning that any attempt to use the country's security forces to drive out informal traders will be "strongly resisted". An army general warned vendors that they would have the military to deal with if they ignored an order by local government minister Ignatius Chombo to vacate city centres. The government later backtracked; with defence minister Sydney Sekeramayi saying the army would not be involved while the High Court also made clear that this was no province for the military. "As it becomes apparent that the Zanu PF campaign promise to create two million jobs was just an election gimmick, the streets have provided sanctuary to the many unemployed Zimbabweans seeking to earn a living.

    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.
