  • Zimbabwe: Grace Mugabe's Bedroom Coup

    WHEN former war veterans' leader Jabulani Sibanda last October warned of a "bedroom coup" brewing in Zanu PF ahead of the party's acrimonious December congress, his remarks could have simply been dismissed as polemics in an intensifying succession battle. In fact, Grace -- using her now widely acknowledged influence over Mugabe at home and in the office -- did something unthinkable: ousted a liberation struggle stalwart and precipitated unprecedented political purges in the party's history. At the height of succession-fuelled factionalism and infighting, Sibanda threatened that real war veterans would resist Grace's "a bedroom or boardroom coup".

  • Chris Brown unhappy about his mom seeing daughter

    The Loyal hitmaker has filed to have his paternity over 13-month-old Royalty established so he can go to court over custody and child support arrangements with the tot's mother, Nia Guzman, and insiders claim he made the move after his bid to see the youngster this week was blocked because she was with her paternal grandmother Joyce Hawkins - who Brown has a strained relationship with - in Virginia. According to TMZ, Guzman insists this is the only time she has ever stopped the 26-year-old singer from seeing his daughter, but it seems that was enough for him to make the decision to take legal action. While the model had been seeking around $15,000 a month in child support, Brown had wanted to pay $2,500 but they had reportedly agreed on $10,000 a month, effective from this month.

    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.
