    This is the first time a current or former ANC insider has revealed the source of Zuma's funds when he was broke and jobless after former president Thabo Mbeki fired him as South Africa's deputy president in 2005. Malema is also the first high-profile politician to reveal how most ANC struggle veterans funded their lifestyles. Malema said he personally raised funds for Zuma at public ANC rallies "and from unidentified donors" before Zuma became president in 2009.

  • Three quit DA over Kohler Barnard furore - Politics | IOL News

    Cape Town - A DA proportional representative councillor has abandoned his Durbanville office and R35 000-a-month salary, with benefits, to defect to the ANC citing “systematic racism” which was highlighted when DA MP Dianne Kohler Barnard shared a Facebook post calling for the resurrection of PW Botha. Cyril Mack, the PR councillor for Ward 67, was joined by his secretary Danny Bolton and his UWC student activist son Grant as they shed their blue DA T-shirts for yellow ones, to the delight of ANC provincial chairman Marius Fransman. The former DA members and councillor left their prominent positions within the party to become ordinary ANC members on Tuesday at the party’s offices in Sahara House

  • SA drug mule to plead for royal pardon from Malaysian king | The New Age Online

    A South African man on death row for drug smuggling in Malaysia may ask the king for a presidential pardon.  This will be the case should the final appeal of Deon Cornelius fail after he was bust with about 2kg of meth.  Deon Cornelius is facing a death penalty for smuggling 1.9kg of methamphetamine into Malaysia in October 2013.  He lost his appeal to have his sentence reversed at the appeals court in that country last week, after being convicted in January.  The Department of International Relations and Cooperation, spokesperson, Nelson Kgwete said: “In cases where the final appeal to the Federal Court is unsuccessful, the only option left is for the prisoner to submit a request for pardon

  • Women aren’t Bonang’s enemy - The Star

    The inspiration gig that Bonang Matheba plays for young women the continent over is surely done, says Therese Owen. Johannesburg - There is a classic scene in the Eighties film 9½ Weeks where Kim Basinger performs a sexy strip show for Mickey Rourke to the Joe Cocker song You Can Leave Your Hat On. By leaving only her hat on, that scene made Basinger the legendary sex kitten we knew and loved. Although she later won an Oscar for her role in LA Confidential, she was mostly typecast after that as the siren with the squeaky scream. While human beings love to leave their hats on, we also love to judge celebrities who leave their hats on. It makes us feel better about ourselves and, let’s face it,

  • Rihanna On Rachel Dolezal: “Is It Such A Horrible Thing That She Pretended To Be Black?”

    In an interview with Vanity Fair, Rihanna praised Rachel Dolezal, the former Spokane, Washington, NAACP president who was forced to resign after her parents said she was a white person pretending for years to be black, sparking a national controversy over her racial identity. “I think she was a bit of a hero, because she kind of flipped on society a little bit,” said Rihanna in Vanity Fair’s November cover story. While members of Dolezal’s family have offered proof of her being white, she has consistently maintained that she identifies as black. In interviews she said she has been through the black experience by having her hair searched by airport security. In a July interview with Vanity Fair, Dolezal insisted that she did not deceive anyone about her race.

  • Zuma's former pilot sent to prison for murder

    Yesterday, the Alexandra Magistrate's Court in Johannesburg sentenced Ramolefi to 15 years in prison for murder. His crime: Stabbing the man who had an affair with his wife. In April 2013, Ramolefi, 50, and his wife were at a car wash in Midrand when he spotted Sibusiso Buthelezi, the man who had wooed his wife. Social worker Mosidi Sennelo, who was appointed by the defence to make recommendation for sentencing, compiled a report that painted a picture of a meek Ramolefi who was “greeted by a hot punch in his face” after Buthelezi tapped him on the shoulder. Acting in self-defence, the pilot pulled out a Swiss pocket knife and stabbed Buthelezi, Sennelo said. But Magistrate Gideon Scheidler snubbed

  • Mugabe's oldest allies fear being sidelined if he leaves office

    The oldest members of the ruling Zanu-PF in Zimbabwe reportedly want President Robert Mugabe, 91, to remain in office because they fear being sidelined by the younger generation if he leaves. This is despite the fact that Mugabe continues to make blunders which the opposition says is a sign the veteran leader is "too old" to continue leading Zimbabwe. Mugabe made headlines recently after he read the wrong speech at the opening of Parliament without realising he had delivered the same address a few weeks earlier. According to a Bloomberg report, Zanu-PF’s old guard would rather continue to have the nonagenarian leading the country than risk losing control to the younger generation. The report

    When asked if Jiyane will release a statement of apology regarding an order by Matheba's lawyers to apologise by close of business on Monday - DJ Zinhle's spokesperson Nomndeni Mdakhi said nothing of the sort will be released. "We are not going to be releasing anything," said Mdakhi over the phone. When requested to indicate whether that meant DJ Zinhle will not apologise, Mdakhi asked to be sent questions over email. In her email response, Mdakhi changed her tune. "We have no comment at this point," she replied to a question "Does this mean there would be no apology as you have indicated over the phone?"

  • Noah must nail political colours to the mast

    IT FEELS quite strange that with so many questions of political import to tackle, it is difficult to not make some kind of comment on Trevor Noah. His ascendancy as anchor of the Daily Show is so hard to ignore that, on the day of his debut, I felt compelled to tweet: "Is it crazy that the most anticipated hand-over of power and moral authority on the planet was from one comedian to another? #TrevorNoah." The thing is, most of us wish Noah well, and feel a sense of anxiety that he survives the cutthroat world of US TV. Whichever way his stint with the Daily Show goes, Noah is one of ours, and we feel protective over him. If it bombs, who cares about the fake world of US pop culture anyway? In

  • Traditional leaders can't override constitution - expert

    Following the conviction and sentencing of King Buyelekhaya Dalindyebo, the Congress of Traditional Leaders of South Africa’s (Contralesa) general-secretary Xolile Ndevu vehemently said a senior chief should serve the King’s 12 year prison sentence because the ‘African context’ allows it. During an interview with Talk Radio 702’s Redi Tlhabi earlier today, Ndevu said the King is the king of AbaThembu, therefore AbaThembu can appoint a person to go to prison on the king’s behalf. He added that earlier on when a king or the chief fell off from a horse, a subject was supposed to fall instead of the king falling. However, constitutional expert Pierre De Vos said the South African Constitution allows

  • Real Madrid jump the gun on Ronaldo scoring record

    Real, and some Spanish media, believe an effort five years ago that was deemed an own goal by centre back Pepe should have been awarded to the Portugal captain and he therefore has 324 goals, one more than Raul. The disputed goal came in a La Liga game at Real Sociedad in September 2010 when Ronaldo's shot arrowed towards the Sociedad wall, looped up off Pepe's back and over goalkeeper Claudio Bravo into the net. "I would never have imagined when I put on this shirt for the first time that I would be the team's best goal scorer," Ronaldo said at a presentation at the Bernabeu stadium where he received a trophy marking his achievement. "I am very happy," added the 30-year-old. "Firstly, I want

Speaking at a media briefing, Sabela said the ANC should bring back a programme supporting artists performing during government functions by using a budget previously shelved during times of austerity.
