    Johannesburg - ANC Women’s League president Bathabile Dlamini has given the strongest indication yet that the league might support the extension of ANC president Jacob Zuma’s term as party leader. Loyalists of the ANC’s three provincial chairpersons and premiers – the Free State’s Ace Magashule, North West’s Supra Mahumapelo and Mpumalanga’s David Mabuza – are reportedly planning to table a proposal at the party’s national general council (NGC) this week to extend Zuma’s term by two years.

  • ‘Mourinho has mentally drained players’ - Cape Times

    Sami Mokbel Fabio Capello has launched a stunning attack on Jose Mourinho, claiming the Chelsea players are mentally drained after working with the Special One. The Premier League champions have had a dreadful start to the new season and players, privately, have already given up hope of retaining their title. Mourinho was handed a public vote of confidence by the Blues board yesterday – an unusual step under the stewardship of owner Roman Abramovich. And former England manager Capello isn’t surprised by Chelsea’s troubles, claiming the Portuguese has mentally exhausted his squad. “Mourinho is a strategist. He, in this difficult time, asked the club to side with him or against him,” said the Italian.

  • Malema asks judge candidate if he was deployed by DA

    Advocate Lawrence Lever, from Mahikeng in the North West, studied law at Rhodes University in the 1980s - a tumultuous time during apartheid. After going through his CV and experience, "Commissioner Malema" was first on the mic. Lever's CV included his stint as a member of Parliament for the Democratic Party - a predecessor of the DA - between 1999 and 2004. He left apparently because he felt he had reached his "political shelf life". "In the eighties you were at the university? And you were conscious of what was happening in society at the time? And you went with the flow?" Malema asked. Lever replied that he did not claim to have participated in politics. "You took a decision not to be involved

    South Africa’s medical history is tainted by apartheid, which saw medical professionals violate their code of ethics, write Keymanthri Moodley and Sharon Kling.

Bozwana died after the car he was travelling in was peppered with bullets in a dramatic daylight shooting. He said Mahumapelo called on those with information to approach the law enforcement agencies rather than to raise suspicions in the public space. It is rather ironic then that just the day before, Mahumapelo was “raising suspicions in the public space” about Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema and former Cosatu general secretary Zwelinzima Vavi.
