  • Wenger wins ego battle too - Cape Times

    � Catherine Ivill/AMA The friction between Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho in Sunday s Community Shield clash was straight out of the proverbial top drawer. London: There are not two managers in the business who avoid a handshake with more carefully calibrated timing and brimming ego than Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger. You only had to watch them as the Arsenal players came down the steps and Wenger ducked left, avoiding the trap Mourinho had set for him, and the latter decided against breaking right and chasing his quarry. The game was an early-season dust-up that went Arsenal’s way, an unpolished contest between players of varying degrees of match-readiness.

  • ANC will fix immigration act - Mantashe

    "There is a lot about the [immigration] act that is good," Mantashe told Business Times on Friday. Mantashe was speaking in the wake of a minor public spat between Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba, whose department is responsible for immigration, and his counterpart in tourism, Derek Hanekom. In an interview with Talk Radio 702 on Wednesday, Hanekom broke ranks and talked about the woeful effects the new immigration laws were having. The number of visitors to South Africa is drastically down (in the case of those from China, by 40% year on year), which cuts into tourism revenue (a major contributor to GDP) and puts much-needed jobs at risk.

    Thibault Arcade housed a motley assortment of shops with which I would become familiar in the next few weeks - a bridal boutique that never seemed to have any customers, the lobby for a huge multistorey car park, a grotty-looking tea shop ... In the middle was a small diagonal passage that joined the arcade to another, Polly's Arcade, which ran parallel. Later I was to learn that half the secret service fraternity hung out here; it was a veritable who's who of the CIA, Security Branch, and British Intelligence. On a later occasion I was to sit there drinking coffee with Captain Vic McPherson, who took great pleasure in surreptitiously pointing out to me various interesting individuals, including the head of the CIA in South Africa. Surely the Security Branch was all cloak and dagger?

Two years ago I joined the multitudes of black students across South Africa who are on the receiving end of financial exclusions.
