  • DA ready for a border war over Western Cape

    DA Western Cape leader Patricia de Lille said yesterday the ANC's push to reconfigure provinces was about "the ANC illegitimately wanting to govern the Western Cape without facing an election". Though the ANC's plan to review the number of provinces has been on the cards for some time, it appears to be gaining traction before the party's national general council this week. In 2012 the party resolved to "reform" provinces with a view to streamlining the sphere of government and giving more power to municipalities, which the ruling party considers the coalface of the government. Some members propose provinces be cut from nine to six to "strengthen" them and improve service delivery. There is speculation

  • Zuma's former pilot sent to prison for murder

    Yesterday, the Alexandra Magistrate's Court in Johannesburg sentenced Ramolefi to 15 years in prison for murder. His crime: Stabbing the man who had an affair with his wife. In April 2013, Ramolefi, 50, and his wife were at a car wash in Midrand when he spotted Sibusiso Buthelezi, the man who had wooed his wife. Social worker Mosidi Sennelo, who was appointed by the defence to make recommendation for sentencing, compiled a report that painted a picture of a meek Ramolefi who was “greeted by a hot punch in his face” after Buthelezi tapped him on the shoulder. Acting in self-defence, the pilot pulled out a Swiss pocket knife and stabbed Buthelezi, Sennelo said. But Magistrate Gideon Scheidler snubbed

In comments aired Sunday on ABC's "This Week," Trump said he would not establish a no-fly zone over Syria, as several other candidates, including Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton, have suggested.
