  • Zimbabwe: Mugabe Ambushed and Humiliated in Nigeria

    PRESIDENT Robert Mugabe may perhaps have to find another phrase to describe Nigeria after he was humiliated by a group of journalists who took him to task over his prolonged stay in power and lack of democracy in Zimbabwe. As soon as Mugabe and his entourage had arrived for president Buhari's inauguration, Nigerian journalists swarmed around his vehicle to ask a barrage of provocative questions, in apparent contempt for the 91-year old strongman. Was Mugabe happy to be in Nigeria? What was his feeling over the fact that he was in Abuja to witness a democratic handover of power when there was no such in his own country?

  • SA’s 2010 huge ticket sales shock - Soccer

    The controversy swirling around South Africa’s 2010 World Cup has deepened further with fresh claims that Fifa allegedly identified serious issues with South Africa’s bid two weeks before choosing it as the host nation – but did nothing about it. This was because football’s world governing body was more concerned with putting on a good “TV show” when it named South Africa as the winning bidder, according to a new report, which also says the tournament has left the country with “an oversupply of underutilised stadiums”. The report says South Africans are still shouldering the financial burden of the tournament years down the line. The research, published by a British academic days before nine Fifa officials were charged with decades of corruption, appears to undermine the idea that the organisation has been a positive force in Africa – a factor that played a key part in Sepp Blatter’s re-election as president, on Friday.

As someone who had reckless and negligent and drunken driving charges only provisionally withdrawn against him in 2011, Zuma may have found his man in the NPA’s deputy director of Public Prosecutions Dr Mashau Silas Ramaite.

    Neverland, the sprawling California ranch that was once the location of "King of Pop" Michael Jackson's mind-boggling amusement park, is up for sale for $100 million, realtors said Friday. But an expert said the price tag is "optimistic," given the unproven charges of child molestation which tainted Jackson's final years before his death in 2009. The late star built up his Neverland Ranch on 2,700 acres outside Santa Barbara to include zoo animals, numerous amusement rides and lavish gardens. It has 22 buildings, according to the Wall Street Journal.
