  • South Africa: Eskom to Implement Stage 2 Load Shedding

    Eskom will implement stage 2 load shedding from 16h00 today, which is likely to continue until 22h00 this evening. This is due to increased electricity demand as a result of the cold front that is currently sweeping through parts of the country as well as a shortage of generation capacity resulting from technical faults at some of our power station units. Eskom would like to assure customers that load shedding is implemented as a necessary measure to protect the power system and to ensure that maintenance is carried out in order to guarantee that our supply of electricity can be maintained in the long term. Any unexpected changes on the vulnerable and constrained power system could lead to a change in the load shedding stage at short notice.

  • Judge Masipa got it right – on the law

    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.

Masipa’s verdict has created a ruckus for a number of reasons, with the most common criticism relating to her application of dolus eventualis.
