  • Restaurant apologises to Kelly

    The Free State restaurant accused of racism by Afro-pop star Kelly Khumalo has offered an apology to her. Sowetan reported yesterday that Antoinette Roos of The Cabin Stall in Clocolan, near Ladybrand, called Khumalo a "liar" after the singer complained that she was told black people were not allowed into the establishment. Roos also maintained that Khumalo owed her an apology. Things changed overnight as Anja Roos, who identified herself as Roos's daughter, extended an olive branch on Khumalo's Instagram account. She said they were sorry and assured Khumalo they were not racists. "We are very sorry if you felt discriminated against. We apologise if there was a misunderstanding on the day you

    "Our government is worse than the apartheid government, because at least you were expecting it from the apartheid government," he said in a news conference on the government's failure to grant Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama a visa. "We were expecting we would have a government that was sensitive to sentiments of our Constitution," Tutu said. "The trouble is that the ANC on the whole reckons that the freedom that we enjoy is due to them. They reckon everyone else is just a sideline." Tutu, who shouted and shook his finger as he spoke, said President Jacob Zuma did not represent him. "Hey Mr Zuma, you and your government don't represent me. You represent your own interests.

  • Outrage as Zuma's pay hike sees him earning R2.7 million a year

    MPs yesterday shouted in objection to an ANC motion confirming that President Jacob Zuma would receive a salary increase of about 5%, taking his total remuneration to R2.7-million a year. Zuma almost didn't get the increase. The ANC just managed to scrape together enough votes, with 203 voting in favour and 88 voting against. Had more than two ANC MPs been absent from the sitting, the opposition could have staged a walkout, making it impossible to get the increase approved. Sittings need a quorum of 201. This increase now means Zuma will receive about R100000 in back payments, as his salary increases from R2.62-million. Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa's salary will increase from R2.47-million

  • Deadly toll of VW’s diesel deception

    VOLKSWAGEN’s (VW) diesel deception unleashed tonnes of extra pollutants in the US, which can harm human health. Unlike the at least 124 people who died in car crashes linked to the General Motors (GM) vehicles with ignition defects, pollution created by rigged VW vehicles is harder to link to individual deaths. But it is clear to public health researchers that the air pollutants these cars illegally emitted damage health, and researchers have formulas for the number of lives lost from excess pollution in general. After consulting experts in calculating the health effects of air pollutants, a possible death toll — based on an estimate of the extra pollutants emitted by these Volkswagens in the

  • Youth League against Cyril for president

    The league's message, conveyed to Ramaphosa during a meeting in KwaZulu-Natal, is a boost for Dlamini-Zuma because the party's young wing has traditionally been billed a "kingmaker" in ANC circles. The league's move also raises new questions about the influence of the so-called "premier league" - comprising three premiers apparently pulling the strings behind the scenes to secure its own candidates in top positions. The ANC has denied the existence of a premier league. Ramaphosa's spokesman, Ronnie Mamoepa, said he did not know if such a discussion had taken place, while league president Collen Maine refused to confirm or deny that a delegation had met the deputy president. However, a league

    AP SA's favourite comedian was everything his legion of fans hoped he would be on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. Trevor Noah is so adaptable, intelligent and disarmingly funny, he’ll have ’em eating pie out of his hand in no time, writes Dennis Pather. Comedian Trevor Noah’s impressive debut this week on The Daily Show had millions of South Africans rallying behind him, understandably so. Yes, the Noah faithful will tune in a second time, maybe even a third and fourth, but my bet is that local interest will start waning when South Africans begin to realise they’ve traded their precious home-brewed Mzansi-humour for the more formulaic Ameri-humour, which one critic once unkindly described as “high on lip gloss and low on IQ”.

  • Real's Bale and Ramos fit for derby but Rodriguez out | The New Age Online

    Real Madrid's Gareth Bale and Sergio Ramos are fit to return for Sunday's derby at Atletico Madrid but James Rodriguez has been ruled out, coach Rafa Benitez said. Atletico are likely to provide Benitez with his strongest test to date as boss at Real. Although Diego Simeone's side have not hit top form, they have the quality to cause problems for Real and will be highly motivated with local bragging rights at stake. Real's 4-0 defeat by Atletico at the Calderon last season played a significant part in their decision to ditch former coach Carlo Ancelotti and bring in Benitez, who is considered to be more of a disciplinarian. Benitez hoped to have players back from the treatment room for the crunch

Moscow (AFP) “Over the past 24 hours SU-34, SU-24M and SU-25 jets made 20 sorties,” the defence ministry said. “Ten infrastructure targets of ISIL bandit groups have been struck,” it said, referring to IS.

South Africa are starting to look ominously dangerous and the other leading contenders for the William Webb Ellis trophy will be looking over their shoulders at the rapidly improving Boks. The difference that Fourie du Preez made since starting his first Test of the year last week against Samoa has been phenomenal.

Deputy provincial chairman Kwazi Mshengu urged the artists to support the ANC, especially as the 2016 local government elections were drawing nearer. "It dismays us when we see you donning other parties' regalia. Although we don't have money, if you are an ANC member and an artist you should perform at our functions," Mshengu said.
