    South Africa became one of the fastest-developing African countries after attaining democracy, which made it a preferred destination for millions of job-seeking foreign nationals.

  • Zuma's nine-point plan aims to make ANC members rich: Zille

    In her weekly newsletter posted on the Democratic Alliance's website, she said the plan Zuma presented on Thursday disguised his real intentions, which would benefit his network of loyal cadres. "It is an insider enrichment scheme disguised beneath the mantle of the so-called 'developmental state', a word which in ANC-speak, means precisely the opposite of what the English language intended it to," Zille said. Zuma's nine-point plan included resolving the energy crisis, adding value to the country's mineral wealth, and encouraging private sector investment. Focusing on Zuma's call for the energy crisis to be resolved, Zille said this was what South Africa needed, but the African National Congress was not putting any plan into action.

  • 14 African Countries Forced by France to Pay Colonial Tax For the Benefits of Slavery and Colonization

    Did you know many African countries continue to pay colonial tax to France since their independence till today! When Sékou Touré of Guinea decided in 1958 to get out of french colonial empire, and opted for the country independence, the french colonial elite in Paris got so furious, and in a historic act of fury the french administration in Guinea destroyed everything in the country which represented what they called the benefits from french colonization. The purpose of this outrageous act was to send a clear message to all other colonies that the consequences for rejecting France would be very high. Sylvanus Olympio, the first president of the Republic of Togo, a tiny country in west Africa, found a middle ground solution with the French.

    What happened outside a farm some 32km from Maseru on Thursday was tantamount to Lesotho showing a middle finger to South Africa's diplomatic efforts. Brigadier Maaparankoe Mahao was driving out of the farm with his nephew when three Lesotho Defence Force vehicles intercepted him. According to Mahao's family, occupants of one of the vehicles fired three AK47 shots at him without provocation. In self-defence, the army claims, the arresting soldiers shot Mahao in his right arm and then took him to hospital, where he later died "due to over-bleeding".

  • Judge Masipa got it right – on the law

    Masipa cleared the athlete of murdering his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, instead finding him guilty of culpable homicide and of one firearm-related charge. This was because Masipa found that the state had failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Pistorius had the necessary intention to murder Steenkamp. Despite finding the athlete was a “very poor witness”, Masipa accepted that Pistorius’s version – that he genuinely believed there was an intruder in his house – could reasonably possibly be true, which is all that was necessary for an acquittal on murder. Masipa’s verdict has created a ruckus for a number of reasons, with the most common criticism relating to her application of dolus eventualis.

  • Zimbabwe: Kasukuwere Faces Arrest

    A high stakes political game has exploded in ZANU-PF whereby cadres loyal to one of the factions vying to succeed President Robert Mugabe in the event that he vacates office are pushing to have national political commissar Saviour Kasukuwere arrested over his handling of the country's many Community Share Ownership Schemes (CSOSs). The Financial Gazette has it on good authority that Mayor Justice Wadyajena, the chairman of the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Youth, Indigenisation and Economic Empowerment is under increasing pressure from ZANU-PF hawks that feel threatened by Kasukuwere's rising political stock to exert pressure on Parliament in order to have him investigated for his role in the CSOSs with a view to causing his arrest. Despite his youthful age, Wadyajena has combined his financial clout, sharp tongue and extensive political connections to cause political tremors in ZANU-PF.
