    Actress Raven Symone seems to be suffering from a bad case of 'foot-in-mouth' disease. Symone received a lot of criticism last year after she told media mogul Oprah Winfrey that she didn't want to be 'labelled' as 'African-American'. Last week she proved how little geographical knowledge she has by referring to African countries as continents. “I never said I wasn’t black, I said I wasn’t African American – to me that’s a difference,” she stated.

    Five years ago I walked out in the middle of my South African political thought tutorial in absolute outrage after the whole class and the white tutor agreed that Cecil John Rhodes was a great leader.

  • Zimbabwe: Govt to Fire 9,000 Unqualified Teachers

    SOME 9,000 temporary teachers will likely be fired over the next couple of months as the government moves to weed out unqualified personnel from schools. The development was confirmed by primary and secondary education minister Lazarus Dokora. Addressing a joint command and staff course at Zimbabwe Staff College in Harare last week, Dokora said his ministry was inviting qualified teachers to start applying for posts around the country. Education was one of the worst affected sectors as a serious brain drain hit Zimbabwe from the turn of the millennium with many professionals going abroad to escape a biting economic crisis.

  • Sanral’s Cape secrets in the open

    A JUDGMENT by the Supreme Court of Appeal on Monday cleared the way for exposure of controversial details of tolling plans in the Western Cape by the South African National Roads Agency (Sanral) and ensured public access to documents filed in court. The City of Cape Town on Monday revealed crucial information on the tolling plans after the judgment set aside an order made by Western Cape High Court Judge Ashley Binns-Ward in August last year that Sanral documents remain sealed until a review was heard in court. Judge Binns-Ward’s ruling meant important details of the tolls project were kept secret as Sanral had applied for them to be kept confidential in a court case brought by the city to review the decision to toll certain roads. The Democratic Alliance-led City of Cape Town has been fiercely opposed to Sanral’s proposed tolls on the N1 and N2 freeways in the Western Cape, and a legal review is set to be heard in August.

  • Oil extends losses as deadline for Iran nuclear deal looms

    Oil futures extended losses on Tuesday, as Iran and six world powers ramped up the pace of negotiations to reach a preliminary deal that could ease sanctions and allow more Iranian crude onto world markets. With a deadline less than 24 hours away, United States, Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China were trying to break an impasse in negotiations aimed at stopping Iran from having the capacity to develop a nuclear bomb, in exchange for an easing of international sanctions. “Iran has built up significant oil inventories and could immediately increase exports if sanctions are lifted,” analysts at ANZ said in a note. Shipping sources say Iran is storing at least 30 million barrels of oil on its fleet of supertankers, as Western sanctions keep a lid on sales.
