Mandla has been here for too long but obviously his actions speak louder than words. “With Tefu it was a scenario where he was made an offer quite early to renew his contract, his agent came back with a counter offer. The long and short of it is that we decided that we cannot go forward and therefore we have terminated negotiations as far as Mashamaite is concerned.

  • The other side of the Limpopo, part one: How Zimbabweans deal with ‘xenophobic’ violence | Daily Maverick

    The Crisis in Zimbabwe Coalition is located in a sprawling Rhodesian-era bungalow on Samora Machel Avenue, in the Harare suburb of Eastlea. The Crisis in Zimbabwe Coalition is, as one would expect from a country terminally in crisis, always busy. Lewanika is a big man with a deep voice dressed in a black suit, who understands that the trouble confronting his countrymen at home and abroad is a feedback loop of violence and shame. The so-called “xenophobic” or “Afrophobic” violence that bedevils Zimbabweans in South Africa is little more than a reflection of the violence that bedevils Zimbabweans at home.

  • Stop moaning about apartheid and lift yourself up

    This is what was on my mind as I imbibed the work of historian David Killingray at the British Library, in London, at the weekend. Simply sitting back and moaning about apartheid is akin to that struggling, and often rowdy, rural boy and girl who have given up on transforming themselves for the better because they believe witchcraft is weighing on them. Witchcraft or no witchcraft, apartheid or not, the African child must pick himself up and defy the odds. More than 100 years ago, a number of natives worked on defying the odds and armed themselves with the knowledge and skills that were to be key in politically liberating SA. After being vanquished by the colonialists, many of these great African ancestors did not just resign themselves to bars and empty sloganeering.

  • Rebellion may send e-tolls to the scrap heap of apartheid laws

    In accordance with the inept manner in which it has handled the revolt against e-tolling, the government has played into the rebels’ hands with contradictory advertisements on the revised charges announced by Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa. The response to this by the Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance (Outa) was suitably chirpy: "There are fun and games ahead. In one sense — though not the scale of penalties — the threat to withhold licence discs is reminiscent of how the National Party (NP) government attempted to break the campaign of defiance against unjust laws in the 1950s. Popular defiance is the name of the game, and there are many lessons from our history about attempts to enforce laws with so little popular legitimacy.

    With enough money you can buy anything, even a foreign citizenship. “For families with means, it’s really just about giving yourself and your kids options,” says Andrew J. Taylor, vice-chair of Henley & Partners, the company that basically created the citizenship-by-investment concept, turned around the fortunes of a struggling Caribbean island, St Kitts & Nevis. Around 90% of Henley & Partners’ clients don’t want to move from their home country immediately, but would like to do so at a future date or want the convenience of multiple passports, says Taylor. Its latest Visa Restriction Index says South Africans can access 97 of 199 countries visa-free.
