    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.

  • 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.

  • Germanwings pilot hid health condition that would have banned flying

    The pilot who crashed an aircraft in the French Alps had received a sick note from doctors showing he suffered a health condition that would have prevented him flying the day of the crash, which he apparently hid from his employer, German prosecutors said. French prosecutors believe Andreas Lubitz, 27, locked himself alone in the cockpit of the Germanwings Airbus A320 on Tuesday and deliberately steered it into a mountain, killing all 150 people on board. "Documents with medical contents were confiscated that point towards an existing illness and corresponding treatment by doctors," said the prosecutors’ office in Duesseldorf, where the co-pilot lived and where the doomed flight from Barcelona was heading. "The fact there are sick notes saying he was unable to work, among other things, that were found torn up, which were recent and even from the day of the crime, support the assumption based on the preliminary examination that the deceased hid his illness from his employer and his professional colleagues," the German prosecutors said.

  • Zimbabwe: Mugabe's Belief in Witchcraft Cause of His Poor Leadership
