    President Jacob Zuma and his cabinet allowed a man who had a hand in the killing of 300000 black Africans to escape despite the courts saying they should stop him. The economy is growing at a mere 1.5% while unemployment is soaring. ANC secretary-general Gwede Mantashe is making terribly worrying noises about the judiciary because he didn't like some of their judgments.

  • NEWS ANALYSIS: ANC’s two-thirds problem means honeymoon is over

    THE African National Congress (ANC) ran into an unlikely problem in the national legislature last week, an issue not comparable to its regular clashes with the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF). The ANC had rammed its choice for the position of inspector-general of intelligence — its former MP Cecil Burgess — through the joint standing committee on intelligence (JSCI). Indeed, it is considered so important that a special majority of two-thirds of all MPs is required to approve a nomination for appointment by the president.

The former Malawi leader said in a statement that she only feels safe while in South Africa and that returning back to Malawi is nonexistent in her plans as it would mean constantly looking over her shoulder the very moment she lands, alleging that Malawi is not a safe haven for her.
