  • OPINION: Trench warfare, Nkandla edition

    Architect Minenhle Makhanya has been largely blamed for the escalation of project costs during the security upgrades at President Jacob Zuma’s private Nkandla residence. Whichever way it goes, to many this entire case will appear as if it was designed to collapse over the issue of Makhanya’s lack of access to classified documents. As the former lead architect on President Jacob Zuma’s Nkandla security upgrades project, Minenhle Makhanya claims he requires confidential and classified documents to defend himself against the R155 million civil claim instituted against him by the Special Investigating Unit (SIU).

Durban - Soon after Comrade Sbu Ndebele was released from Robben Island I remember him venturing forth on one aspect of the tragedy of apartheid: that African South Africans often adopted the PHD mentality when trying to demonstrate their intellectual prowess. Of course those PHDs were comrades who Put Him/Her Down (PHD) rather than engage substantively in advance of the National Democratic Revolution and the struggle for socialism.

  • Zimbabwe: The Rise and Fall of Tsvangirai

    FROM a trailblazing labour leader who transformed into a fiery democracy activist who came within a whisker of deposing one of Africa's strongmen, to the sorry sight of his furniture strewn outside his house pending seizure, Morgan Tsvangirai has lived across extremes. The leader of the opposition MDC-T took the gamble and challenged President Robert Mugabe, the only leader Zimbabwe has known since majority rule from Britain almost four decades ago, to form a political party "literally" out of the ashes of the Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) in 1999. At his peak, he called on Mugabe to "go peacefully or we will remove you violently". Tsvangirai had Mugabe's military generals out of their barracks sensing power slipping through their fingers, leading to the late General Vitalis Zvinavashe's infamous "straight jacket statement" hours before Zimbabweans trooped to the polls in 2002.

  • Africa: AfDB - New Leadership, Same Direction

    The Bank chose Akinwumi Adesina as its new president in May. The Nigerian says his priorities are infrastructure, private-sector lending and inclusive growth, according to AfDB news. Against expectations, and triumphantly uniting the Francophone and Anglophone wings of the African Development Bank (AfDB), Akinwumi Adesina was chosen as the eighth president of the institution in late May. The former Nigerian agriculture minister (in Goodluck Jonathan's administration) was ahead from the first round of voting, fending off challenges from Christina Duarte of Cabo Verde and Kordjé Bedoumra of Chad.That the AfDB's shareholders preferred a former agriculture minister to lead the premier development finance institution is perhaps a sign that Africa is finally putting its money where its mouth is when it comes to a green revolution.
