    Beauty thief learns ugly lesson

    A habitual thief with a partiality for stealing Nivea beauty products received an ugly surprise when he was sentenced to two years in jail and eight strokes of the medicinal cane. Appearing before Mogoditshane Customary Court this week, 35-year-old Lesetse Latiwa was accused of praying on unsuspecting supermarkets and selling his stolen goods to people at reduced prices. Court heard how, on the morning of March 3, the Tlokweng native was caught red-handed at Choppies in Mogoditshane with stolen Nivea products, including roll-on, lotion and shower gel. Giving evidence before court, the store’s Security Guard, Gaogalalwe Goboletswe, revealed the theft was discovered after he inspected Latiwa’s till receipt and realised the Nivea items in the plastic bag had not been paid for.

    Malawi: Senior Chief Kaomba Brands Bushiri 'Papa of the Poor'

    Influential Chewa Senior Chief Kaomba of Kasungu says he is shocked with Prophet Shepherd Bushiri's apolitical, non-discriminatory and territorial wide way in which he is giving relief maize to Malawians. Kaomba says he has never, in his lifetime, seen one person doing such great charity works in Malawi at such a scale and colour. He made the comments on Thursday at his headquarters in Chilanga, Kasungu, during the donation of at least 2300 bags of maize meant for families reeling from disaster- induced food shortages in his area. Apart from the 2300 families, Prophet Bushiri also donated over 300 bags to Chilanga School of the Deaf which is owned and run by CCAP Nkhoma Synod. "We have been told

    South Africa: 'She Deserves All the Glory!'

    When Njabulo Ntombela's name was called out at his graduation on Friday, he immediately turned to his great-grandmother, took off his gown so she could wear it and grabbed her hand so they could graduate together. While he had planned it all along, 89-year-old Nomkikilizo was in complete shock. But it was not long before she was making noise and giving praise. Dressed in a blue seshweshwe dress and matching headdress, she shuffled to the stage in her black sneakers. They then knelt together so they could be capped at the University of KwaZulu-Natal ceremony. "When something is living inside of you, you can't get away from it. Whenever I achieve something in life, I know she deserves all the glory,"

    Zimbabwe: Meet Sibusiso B. Moyo... the Man Who Read Mugabe the Riot Act

    November 15, 2017 is not an ordinary day in Zimbabwe's political history. The day was characterised by action-packed events that culminated in the resignation of former president Mr Robert Mugabe. History has recorded November 15, 2017 as the epic day that canonised the end of Mr Mugabe's long rule. It is the day that former Zanu-PF national commissar Mr Saviour Kasukuwere and his acquaintances Professor Jonathan Moyo and Mr Patrick Zhuwao skipped the country's borders and became fugitives. It is the day the Zimbabwe Defence Forces (ZDF) intervened to mark the launch of Operation Restore Legacy. Mr Mugabe was placed under military protection on the same day. Above everything else, the major highlight
