    Cape Town - The Democratic Alliance’s application for a review of Hlaudi Motsoeneng’s appointment as chief operating officer of the SABC got underway on Tuesday, with Western Cape High Court Judge Dennis Davis voicing reservations about letting it proceed, given Motsoeneng’s pending disciplinary process and the upcoming court case over the powers of the Public Protector. Davis told the DA’s counsel, Anton Katz, there was a risk that by the time he had ruled on whether it was indeed irrational, as the opposition contends, to appoint Motsoeneng, the SABC may already have decided to remove him from his post. “By the time the disciplinary is finished Mr Motsoeneng might already be on his bicycle,”

  • ‘Malema wrong about Indian South Africans’ - Politics | IOL News

    Durban - The notion that Indian South Africans dominated “every sphere of life” in KwaZulu-Natal, as was reportedly said by EFF leader Julius Malema last week, was complete “nonsense”. This was the view of civil rights organisation SA Minority Rights Equity Group, reacting to weekend reports. While questioning Judge Shyam Gyanda in an interview for the vacant KZN High Court deputy judge-president post, Malema reportedly said Indians dominated every sphere of life, “particularly economic and judicial”. Malema also reportedly asked him: “Do you think that the appointment of a deputy judge-president, if we were to consider an African person, would be in line with the transformation of the judiciary?”

  • South Africa: 'I Was Just a Normal Village Girl' - First Black Female Navy Commander

    On Wednesday, when Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer names his team to play against Wales in the quarterfinal of the Rugby World Cup, he will arguably be under more scrutiny than when he announced his team to travel to the tournament. Prior to the World Cup, Meyer might have been excused by the argument that he “does not know” exactly who make up his best team – despite having had the whole duration of the Rugby Championship to prepare. Now, though, he surely knows that the young Lood de Jager’s partnership with Eben Etzebeth is what works best for the Boks. As far as teams South Africa will meet in the knockouts go, Wales are arguably the “weakest”, but that does not mean they should be underestimated.
