  • Probe puts politicians in spotlight - Politics | IOL News

    The biggest land restitution fraud case in South Africa, involving more than R70 million and a proposed R2.5 billion project, could return to haunt prominent Mpumalanga businessmen and politicians. The case against at least five of the accused – who were facing charges of fraud and theft in connection with a land restitution deal in Badplaas, Mpumalanga – was withdrawn two years ago. The investigation has since been widened and top politicians have been implicated. The accused, who last appeared in the Nelspruit Regional Court in 2013, were three officials of the Investment for Agricultural Sustainability in Africa (Ifasa), Gustav Uys De Waal, Gert Pienaar and Ferdinand Odendaal, an Ndwandwe community trustee, Mangisi Nkosi, and land speculator and farmer Pieter Visagie.

  • Zimbabwe: Mugabe Exposed

    PRESIDENT Robert Mugabe could have played both puppet and puppeteer, in the Zanu PF debacle that resulted in the removal of then Vice-President Joice Mujuru while the same exposed his wife First Lady Grace as empty, a think tank has said. In a comprehensive paper released last week that looks at the events prior to and after the 2014 Zanu PF fall-out and the ruling party's emotive succession conundrum, the Research and Advocacy Unit (RAU) says Mugabe's "opaque and secretive style of governance" made it very difficult to determine whether he was playing his cards close to his chest, or in fact, not playing any cards at all. "Mugabe is singularly coy in accepting responsibility for decisions generally. "Most usually, when referring to his determinations, particularly if they are sensitive, Mugabe opts for the first person plural, rather than singular, even where the decision is clearly his and his alone.

    It’s criminal that black students have to stomach racist institutions to get a degree as CV cheats jump the queue, writes Malaika wa Azania. It is worsened by the conditions prevailing in my institution of learning, Rhodes University. Two years ago I joined the multitudes of black students across South Africa who are on the receiving end of financial exclusions. While tertiary institutions have seen a significant growth in student numbers and historically white universities a dramatic shift in demographics (black students account for 68 percent of university enrolments), the number of students who successfully complete their courses is alarmingly low.
