  • I shouldn't be alive - Jabu Mahlangu

    “I know I shouldn’t be alive today,” Jabu Mahlangu said, candidly, at the Nelson Mandela Foundation in Houghton. Mahlangu is wearing lots of suits these days with a number of ambassadorial positions from SuperSport United, to the MultiChoice Diski Challenge, the Engen Knockout Challenge and the Industry Association for Responsible Alcohol Use (ARA). Beating his alcohol abuse has seen him show the Grim Reaper the middle finger and play double jeopardy with his scythe as he has come back from the dead a number of times. “There are so many incidents where I should have died,” Mahlangu said.

  • Whitney ‘there’ in Bobbi’s last moments - Tonight News

The 22-year-old aspiring singer passed away on Sunday, almost six months after she was found unresponsive in her bath, and her loved ones felt her late mother was always in the room with them. Family friend Wanda Shelley said: "I played her mom's music.

  • White settlers never stole any land from Africans: iLIVE

    Black Africans never owned any land. Black Africans NEVER owned any land. Who "disadvantaged" the 'black' people of the interior in Southern Africa before the (supposed) belligerent 'white' settlers moved inland in the mid 19th century..? As certainly, what the 'settlers' found was not a hugely advanced infrastructure, deep mines, airports, vast libraries of written works, grandiose institutions of learning, etc. No, as little as 170 years ago they found masses of black people (indigenous to the Southern tip of Africa, The San) living on the fringes of the stone age.

  • 'We've found another Earth'

    Not only is this planet in the "Goldilocks zone" - where life can exist because it is neither too hot nor too cold to support liquid water - its star looks like an older cousin of our sun, the space agency said. Known as Kepler 452b, the planet was detected by the agency's Kepler Space Telescope, which has hunted for worlds like ours since 2009. "Kepler 452b is orbiting a close cousin of our sun, but one that is 1.5 billion years older," it said. If the planet is rocky, and the scientists believe that it has a better than even chance of being just that, then it could be in the midst of a fearful scenario, as the heat from its dying star evaporates Kepler 452b's lakes and oceans.

  • Nudism in full swing in KZN as opposition backs down

    After bringing in police to arrest nudists when the province's first legal nudist beach opened in April, threatening to lodge a complaint with the public protector and appeal to the Hibiscus Coast Municipality to change its approval, the opposition group has "vanished". The Concerned Citizens Group, which claimed to represent thousands of residents in towns along the province's South Coast, has not "put a stop" to the nudist beach, as it had planned to do. "It seems as if all those who were opposing the beach have ridden into the sunset," said SA National Naturists Association chairman Serge Pavlovic yesterday. The group's spokesman, the Rev Mike Effanga, could not be reached for comment.
