• What the glitterati wore at the July (gallery)

    The Vodacom Duran July has always been the watering hole for gazelle like celebs in the month of July, and the 119th race was no different. Media mogul Basetsana Kumalo, the picture of grace, was spotted in the swanky Vodacom VIP Paddock in a lace-mint gown, with a black lattice covering her eyes. Lorna Maseko appropriately (considering the sunny Durban weather) came covered in a flirty black cocktail dress, showing her legs (which considering her ongoing love affair with ballet is flawless). Nomzamo Mbatha killed it in a red cat suit with billowing sleeves.

  • Zimbabwe: Moyo to Be Replaced As Information Minister By Adversary, Claims Mliswa

  • Nkandla has become a hot potato that will not go away, Cosatu warns

    THE African National Congress (ANC) and its allies have finally had it out over Nkandla — a robust discussion on the issue at their summit last week exposed how difficult the "R246m political hot potato" had been to deal with. Alliance leaders admitted on Sunday Nkandla was not going away as it had become an excuse to attack the ANC. Discussions on Nkandla at previous leadership meetings were swiftly shot down, but at the alliance summit there were no holy cows after a robust discussion followed Gauteng chairman Paul Mashatile’s request that the ANC pay back some of the money spent on nonsecurity upgrades to President Jacob Zuma’s private homestead.

  • Greeks defy Europe with overwhelming referendum 'No'

    With nearly a fifth of the votes counted, official figures showed 60.4 percent of Greeks on course to reject a bailout offer from creditors that was the official issue of the ballot. Officials from the Greek government, which had argued that a 'No' vote would strengthen its hand to secure a better deal from international creditors after months of wrangling, immediately said they would try to restart talks with European partners. Euclid Tsakalotos, the government's chief negotiator said talks could restart as early as Sunday evening. Many of Athens' partners have warned over the past week that a 'No' vote would mean cutting bridges with Europe and driving Greece's crippled financial system into outright bankruptcy, dramatically worsening the country's 5-year-long depression.
