    When Barack Hussein Obama, a lanky young American, came to Kenya in search of his roots in 1988, he was picked up from Nairobi's Jomo Kenyatta International Airport by his half-sister, Dr Auma Obama, in a battered Volkswagen Beetle -- a brand locally nicknamed "The Tortoise" at the time. In a scene Mr Obama describes in his book Dreams from my Father, it is clear the car was worse for wear. As we sputtered out onto the four-lane highway, Auma clutching the steering wheel with both hands, I couldn't keep from laughing," Obama writes.

  • Khune set to rejoin Chiefs this week

    Former Kaizer Chiefs captain and goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune looks set to rejoin the club. This is after Khune, together with midfielder Mandla Masango, met with Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung on Friday at the club’s Naturena Village training ground in an attempt to reach a deal that would see the club retain the two players. Khune, Masango and defender Tefu Mashamaite’s contract renewal negotiations with the club collapsed just before the end of last season, due to their alleged steep financial demands and all three are without contracts with the new season set to get underway. While Chiefs are said to have reconsidered their position, the club will meet Masango and Khune tomorrow to conclude talks and lay down the law.

    INDEPENDENT MEDIA There is no trace of Blade Nzimande s involvement in the Struggle, despite his being 18 when the youth rose in Soweto and other parts of South Africa against apartheid, says the writer. There is no trace of Blade Nzimande’s involvement in the Struggle, says Floyd Shivambu. Johannesburg - When Blade Nzimande was reported as having said the EFF should be killed, we dismissed him as an opportunistic intellectual dwarf with no sensible ideological and political programme to confront our party. As will be seen from his political life, Nzimande is an opportunist who was a staff rider of the liberation movement, using empty and often-confusing rhetoric.

  • How visa regulations are killing SA tourism

    Tourist arrivals fell 6% in the first quarter of this year - the first decline since the 2009 recession - and the industry blames this largely on the first batch of new regulations introduced in October last year. The biggest drops were seen in the most important emerging markets for tourism, China and India, with visitors from these countries down by 38% and 13% respectively compared with the corresponding period last year, according to data from Stats SA. Tourist arrivals from Africa, which account for the bulk of the market, also fell. A tourism business index released by the Tourism Business Council of South Africa on Monday fell to 83.6 in the second quarter of this year from 99.9 in the first quarter. South Africa lost R886-million of tourism spend last year and is set to forgo a further R1.4-billion this year, according to an impact assessment study published by the council last month.
