  • Opposition furious over 'parasitic' VIP jets for Zuma and co

    According to The Mercury, the SANDF has defended the purchase of the jets, which are apparently set to cost the nation R2 billion, saying that SA Airways was not a reasonable alternative owing to President Jacob Zuma and Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa's schedules. “One would need to look at the schedules and see if it would make sense for them to travel commercial together with the detail of the entourage, at short notice, and the quickest possible times,” SANDF spokesman Siphiwe Dlamini said. According to the report, SAAF spokeswoman Brigadier-General Marthie Visser said that the current fleet was insufficient to meet the increase in the country’s international relations commitments. COPE president, Mosiuoa Lekota said that the purchase shows how wasteful spending has become the norm.

  • Finally got my daughter back - The Voice Newspaper

    Hi Gase. I am pleased to inform you that I was in court on 12/08/15 and the court ordered my ex to comply with the court order, failing which she will be imprisoned for 45 days. It was an application regarding contempt of court. She is now cooperating with me and she asked me to take the child so that she can start schooling. My ex abandoned our daughter when she was just an infant, leaving me to raise her on my own, only to resurface a couple of years later, removing the child from the nanny’s care while I was at work. What followed can only be described as a complete nightmare for me because from then on, my ex and her mother pulled every trick in the book to ensure that they denied me access

  • WhatsApp slur against Mugabe gets Zim man arrested - report

    Serbian hit men at R6-million each, a move to buy floor plans of the Zonderwater maximum-security prison and having a helicopter on standby had all formed part of the elaborate R25-million operation to spring Krejcir from jail in South Africa. The Sunday Times has seen correspondence between an intelligence source in Prague and forensic investigator Paul O'Sullivan in which the source states: "... Radovan must escape, irrespectably [sic] what it takes or how many lives it costs ... their mafia code of ethics clearly demands and orders them to do so ... otherwise Nadezda loses her status in the Czech/Serbian mafia circles and the entire Krejcirova family are permanently marked as failures or weaklings

  • 'Western Cape is hideout for racists' - Politics | IOL News

    Cape Town - The Western Cape is a hideout for racists who do not want a black government and the country could run more effectively with fewer provinces, ANC leaders said yesterday. Energy Minister Tina Joemat-Pettersson, a speaker at a provincial ANC meeting, yesterday likened the Western Cape to Orania, a Northern Cape town where only white Afrikaners are allowed to live. Joemat-Pettersson is also a member of the ANC’s national executive committee. She said the Western Cape had become painted as a place where “there is an influx of the rural poor from the Eastern Cape”. “Those who do not believe in black majority rule, who still want to perpetuate white minority (rule), have moved from Gauteng

  • Our Trevor is now a US asset - IOL | Sunday Tribune

    AP SA's favourite comedian was everything his legion of fans hoped he would be on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. Trevor Noah is so adaptable, intelligent and disarmingly funny, he’ll have ’em eating pie out of his hand in no time, writes Dennis Pather. Comedian Trevor Noah’s impressive debut this week on The Daily Show had millions of South Africans rallying behind him, understandably so. Yes, the Noah faithful will tune in a second time, maybe even a third and fourth, but my bet is that local interest will start waning when South Africans begin to realise they’ve traded their precious home-brewed Mzansi-humour for the more formulaic Ameri-humour, which one critic once unkindly described as “high on lip gloss and low on IQ”.

  • Are you schooled or are you educated?

     Those of you who have had schooling followed the rules of the school, attended your classes, did your homework, wrote the tests, passed, and received a certificate of some kind. When you fell out of line, and came late or missed an assignment deadline, you were punished for this bad behaviour. You were, in a sense, institutionalised. But you can be schooled and still be a barbarian. You can frame and hang your certificates against a wall and still be uneducated. You can attend many years of formal schooling and still be reckless. I see this all the time. School, in this sense, is therefore not primary school or high school; it is all forms of institutionalisation, including college and university,
