  • Zimbabwe: Zuma, Khama Corner Mugabe

    PRESIDENTS Jacob Zuma of South Africa and Botswana's Ian Khama angrily clashed with their Zimbabwean counterpart, President Robert Mugabe over xenophobia in South Africa, with the two demanding that instead of blaming their neighbour, Zimbabwe and other Sadc states must fix their broken economies to curb the rising tide of immigration. While Sadc leaders met for an extraordinary summit in Harare on Wednesday to discuss an industrialisation strategy and roadmap, the major highlight of the meeting was the recent xenophobic violence and killings in South Africa which raised a storm of debate and anger across the region.

  • OPINION: Mayweather packs a (domestic) punch

    With all the hype surrounding the Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao fight, it seems far too easy to ignore the fact that one of the fighters is a convicted abuser and a misogynist who has never been properly punished for his deeds. Unless a sinkhole opens up or Floyd Mayweather decides to donate a large sum of his earnings to a charitable cause, preferably one fighting against domestic violence, there is no way the fight between Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao could ever live up to the hype that has surrounded it for the last five years. If you didn’t already feel inadequate about your meagre existence then dull your day with the thought that Mayweather will earn more in the time the fight lasts than you will earn your entire life.

    As we walk into the Melrose Arch Hotel restaurant for our appointment, Mosibudi Mangena looks around and makes a remark that summarises the position of black people in the South African economy. Melrose Arch is, in a way, a microcosm of the South African economy. It is owned by Amdec, a white-run property development company founded by John Wilson in 1989. Last year, insurance group Liberty bought a 25% share of the lucrative property.

  • Emmanuel's journey home begins where life was ended

    The coffin carrying the body of the man initially identified as Emmanuel Sithole was placed next to where his stall had stood - and where the fatal attack had started. The images taken of Josias as he was beaten and knifed on the streets of Alexandra, Johannesburg, became the rallying point for many South Africans and government agencies during the recent wave of xenophobic violence, even as the Presidency denied the killing was xenophobic. The South African government instead deemed his murder "an act of criminality". On Monday, President Jacob Zuma said he was in the country illegally and that his real name was Josias.

  • Jayde’s death splits SA along racial lines - Crime & Courts | IOL News

    The murder of Port Elizabeth teacher Jayde Panayiotou has whipped up a race storm on social media. Panayiotou’s killing sent shockwaves through the country this week after police released an identikit of 31-year-old Thando Siyoli, listed as a suspect in the murder of the 28-year-old Uitenhage teacher. A Facebook group was subsequently set up calling for the death penalty for the killer, but as soon as Panayiotou’s husband, Christopher, was confirmed as another suspect in her killing, the page announced that it would be changing its name to “Justice for Jayde Panayiotou – Change for South Africa”. “Is it because the face of the criminal has changed that we no longer endorse the death penalty,” one comment read.

    Foreigners who break rules on buying Australian real estate will face up to three years in jail or fines of Aus$127,500 (US$100,050) for individuals and Aus$637,500 for companies under tougher rules unveiled on Saturday.

"But it does have to be the right foreign investment, in the right things, and we do need to have a foreign investment review system which encourages public confidence that the foreign investment we need really is in Australia’s national interest," Mr Abbott said.

  • South Africa: Xenophobia and Barking At the Wrong Horse - a Response to Professor Mufuka

    Indeed, Professor Ken Mufuka, in an article entitled: "Xenophobia - Barking at the wrong tree" sought to borrow Brilliant Mhlanga's argument that Zimbabweans are probably looking at xenophobia with a jaundiced eye by asserting that before Zimbabweans condemn South Africa they ought to look at their own history and apportion blame where it belongs. By its very nature, xenophobia, is an extremely complex issue that requires sober and rational minds to appreciate its true causes. South Africa is a melting pot but no shared view has been established as to who should be in or out of the pot.

  • ANC to blame for bad work ethic

    Enough with the "South Africans are lazy" rant. There is merit in the argument that South Africa's work ethic leaves much to be desired when measured on labour productivity compared with other countries. South Africans want to work, they want to be self-reliant, they want to be proud of the legacy they are creating for their children. When Kenya got its independence in December 1963, the incoming independence government popularised the slogan "uhuru na kazi" (freedom and hard work).
