  • The Big Read: When African solutions fail

    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".

  • South Africa: Uber Not Worried Over Possible Joburg Regulation

  • Holly Madison Reveals The Hell That Is Playboy Mansion Life

    Holly Madison decided to write a book when she was excelling in her career — starring in the long-running Peepshow in Las Vegas at Planet Hollywood, as well as her own E! “Women would come up to me, and say, ‘Don’t you miss the mansion?’ Or, ‘I’m sorry Hef didn’t marry you,’” Madison recalled during a recent interview with BuzzFeed News at her home on a tree-lined Los Angeles street. It’s safe to say that after the revelations in Madison’s just-released Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a Former Playboy Bunny, she has successfully squashed any such questions in the future. With little preamble — Madison and her collaborator, Leslie Bruce, know what the reader came for — Down the Rabbit Hole tells the story of Madison’s time with Hefner from 2001 to 2008 and its aftermath.

  • EU leaders warn against cost of compromise on Greece - International | IOL Business

    As German Chancellor Angela Merkel and her fellow euro-area leaders cast Greece’s July 5 referendum as a choice on whether to remain in the currency, the strategy suggests confidence the rest of the 19-country region is safe from any infection. Having spent five years dispensing aid and brokering deals with Athens, it also reflects a shift toward worrying that the bigger risk to the euro’s integrity lies in bowing to a member’s demands. “Although the indirect costs of a Grexit could be significant, this does not mean that they would necessarily outweigh the costs associated with an excessive compromise,” said Torsten Slok, chief international economist at Deutsche Bank. The euro fell against the dollar on the first working day after Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said he would put the latest proposals to the people and recommend they reject them.
