  • White ignorance in a time when #RhodesMustFall - City Press

    As a white South African, watching reactions to #RhodesMustFall unfold is horrifying. For some reason, be it the design of our cities, the segregated character of our schools, the whiteness of universities or white economic power, us white people seem to think we are the majority and therefore, can dictate the terms of how things should be – white, of course.

  • What can Mugabe teach us about #RhodesMustFall? - City Press

    Barely 35 years ago, our northern neighbour Zimbabwe was still called Rhodesia. The truth is, Zimbabwe has been wrestling with colonial remnants – and, in particular, Cecil John Rhodes’ remnants – for longer than we have. This week, a Zanu-PF official attempted to rekindle the conversation about moving Rhodes’ remains to the UK, but it is largely expected that the 2012 decision made by the governing party and President Robert Mugabe will remain party policy. In 2012, Mugabe said Rhodes’ body should not be removed from its burial site in the Matobo National Park, 35km south of Bulawayo.

  • The king’s xenophobic statements are a disgrace - City Press

    South Africa is a democratic state. It is governed by the Constitution, domestic and international laws as well as declarations signed within the United Nations. It is reported that his majesty the king, Goodwill Zwelithini, made statements over the weekend in Pongola that foreigners should leave the country because they are the direct cause to immorality and unruliness. Let me start by saying that in the African culture the King is never wrong and should never apologise to anyone for statements made.

  • SA airlines shake up cockpit rules - Gauteng | IOL News

  • Nigeria votes in tight presidential election

    From megacity Lagos and the oil hub of Port Harcourt in the south to Kano and Maiduguri in the restive north, polling stations opened at 07:00, to begin accreditation for voting proper from 12:30. The late arrival of election officials and materials delayed the process at some polling stations, where thousands of people had begun queueing from the early hours and some slept overnight, AFP reporters said. Jonathan, wearing his trademark fedora and black suit, stood at a polling station with his wife Patience and his mother in Utuoke, southern Bayelsa state, as officials sought to resolve the problem. APC candidate Muhammadu Buhari, turned up in a white robe with a traditional Muslim cap at a polling station in his hometown of Daura, in northern Katsina state and acknowledged that the accreditation process went smoothly.

  • Zimbabwe: Joice Mujuru - a Victim of Unquestionable Loyalty

    THE relentless onslaught on Joice Mujuru by the Mugabes together with marauding wolves from the Mnangagwa camp is meant to taint the poor widow's image and that of her late husband, Rex Nhongo. Added to this mystery are feeble attempts by victims, Mujuru and Mutasa in particular, to exonerate Robert Mugabe, the claim being that the dictator is being misled by others, hence, desperate attempts to seek audience with him. For, how can Teurai Ropa Nhongo, a renowned former freedom fighter be slaughtered at the alter like a sacrificial lamb in silence? Based on this hypothesis, it implies that the poor widow hasn't given up yet but has just postponed the fight for tomorrow in Mugabe's absence, the assumption being that she outlives the dictator.

  • In jet's last moments, calm co-pilot ignores pleas to open cockpit

    Andreas Lubitz was breathing, steady and calm, in the final moments of Germanwings Flight 9525. It was the only sound from within the cockpit that the voice recorder detected as Lubitz, the co-pilot, sent the plane into its descent. The sounds coming from outside the cockpit door on Tuesday were something else altogether: knocking and pleading from the commanding pilot that he be let in, then violent pounding on the door and finally passengers’ screams moments before the plane, carrying 150 people, slammed into a mountainside in the French Alps. The sound of Lubitz’s breathing indicated that he was conscious to the end, Brice Robin, the Marseille public prosecutor, said at a news conference.
