  • White ignorance in a time when #RhodesMustFall - City Press

    As a white South African, watching reactions to #RhodesMustFall unfold is horrifying. For some reason, be it the design of our cities, the segregated character of our schools, the whiteness of universities or white economic power, us white people seem to think we are the majority and therefore, can dictate the terms of how things should be – white, of course.

  • What can Mugabe teach us about #RhodesMustFall? - City Press

    Barely 35 years ago, our northern neighbour Zimbabwe was still called Rhodesia. The truth is, Zimbabwe has been wrestling with colonial remnants – and, in particular, Cecil John Rhodes’ remnants – for longer than we have. This week, a Zanu-PF official attempted to rekindle the conversation about moving Rhodes’ remains to the UK, but it is largely expected that the 2012 decision made by the governing party and President Robert Mugabe will remain party policy. In 2012, Mugabe said Rhodes’ body should not be removed from its burial site in the Matobo National Park, 35km south of Bulawayo.

  • Ex-dictator vs fortunate son in Nigeria’s presidential vote

    The two main candidates in Nigeria’s tense presidential election on Saturday cut sharply different profiles: an ex-military ruler who once cracked down on indiscipline and a zoologist rarely seen without his stylish fedora. Incumbent Goodluck Jonathan, 57, is a Christian from the Niger Delta oil region in the south while Muhammadu Buhari, 72, is a Muslim from the north and a retired major general. An ethnic Ijaw from a family of canoe makers, Mr Jonathan’s rise to the top of his country’s ruthless political world has been described as accidental. Fortune certainly seems to have favoured Mr Jonathan throughout his political career, as his first name would imply.

Mottola listened to the tape in his limo after leaving the party and immediately turned around, but Carey had left. Mottola would eventually track Carey down and sign her to Sony, where she would re-record several of the tracks from her demo tape for her debut album.

Other than preventing skin cancer and melanoma-related diseases, coffee has antioxidant ingredients that can help reduce the occurrence of skin problems and diseases in general. The coffee plant is grown in the shade with the help of natural soil organisms to sustain its growth.
