• Watch: Another embarrassing error for SABC as presenter caught 'working out'

    The SABC has been caught off guard once again. This time a viewer captured a bizarre moment when while linking to an insert, the camera man switched back to studio, showing the TV presenter gesturing with her arms in mid air as if she is exercising. When the presenter realises she is back on air, she sheepishly stops gesturing, unsure of what to do. This is the latest blooper after a dagga activist smoked live on air and an experienced anchor became aggressive with the spokesperson of the EFF. Hat tip News24

    Almost R20 000 worth of goods, inclusive of cash, was taken during a robbery at a funeral home in the Monument area of Krugersdorp, on the West Rand. In the CCTV footage of the robbery, three robbers unexpectedly surprise employees of Martin’s Funerals Home just after 5.30pm on Friday, May 15.
