    I had barely spent 10 minutes on South African soil when I knew that Nigerians were unwelcome. Arriving at the O R Tambo International Airport, an immigration officer irritatingly asked me how long I was staying, despite seeing clearly on my passport that I had a visa to stay up to 30 days.

  • Mayweather open to Pacquiao rematch - Boxing

    EPA Floyd Mayweather Jr. (L) throws a left against Manny Pacquiao during their welterweight unification championship boxing fight at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Mayweather has one fight remaining on his Showtime contract and has repeatedly said he intends to retire after a bout fight in September, although after Saturday's fight he told reporters that he is “human” and occasionally contradicts himself. “I will fight him in a year after his surgery,” Mayweather, who earned a unanimous decision over Pacquiao, told Smith in a text on Tuesday, according to ESPN.

  • South Africa: Bitter Boy Who Shames His Father and His People

    President Zuma's son Edward is xenophobic and racist. Like the disgarceful Zulu King Zwelithini he supports, whose reckless utterances sparked the attacks on foreginers, Edward continues Cecil Rhodes' odious legacy of dividing Africans. It is quite overwhelming to see the grown son of the most powerful man in South Africa act like a child that grew up in a home without discipline or education. Today, we can say that Edward Zuma is xenophobic, even though he himself was born in Swaziland.

  • Zimbabwe: Donors Push for Tsvangirai, Mujuru Coalition

    OPPOSITION MDC-T leader Morgan Tsvangirai is reportedly grappling with a quandary after donors made clear he either joins up with former vice president Joice Mujuru or risk losing financial support. Western donors are reportedly frustrated with Tsvangirai's remarkable success in failing to dislodge President Robert Mugabe, now 91 years old, since the formation of the MDC in 1999. The former prime minister had already been hit with financial sanctions by traditional donors after he came a cropper again in the 2013 vote. Following the MDC-T's shellacking by Zanu PF in those elections which the opposition leader insists were rigged by Mugabe and his party, donors reportedly turned to the Tendai Biti-led MDC Renewal initiative.

Over the past few weeks, Nigerian troops claim to have rescued about 1,000 women and girls. "Many of them told us that they have been hungry for days," said Sani Datti, spokesman for Nigeria's National Emergency Management Agency.

    Huawei is the biggest phone brand you may never have heard of, though that’s beginning to change. Two years ago it launched the Ascend P6 which was super-slim and aiming directly at the iPhone market, a phone which some would say the P6 resembled. Huawei’s handsets are priced much more keenly than Apple or Samsung products, however. Last year’s Ascend P7 was less of a statement but this week in London the company revealed its latest flagship, the P8.

The South African Football Association are said to be interested in Baxter for the role of technical director, while Moroccan giants Raja Casablanca, who knocked Chiefs out of this year’s Caf Champions League, are also reported to have enquired about his services. It is now obvious that Josta Dladla and Siyabonga Nkosi will not be part of the team next season.
