• Zimbabwe: Mugabe Vows to Expel More White Farmers

    WHITE farmers still occupying pieces of land in the country must brace for more farm seizures after President Robert Mugabe revealed Saturday his government was investigating how many of them survived the violent and anti-white land seizures since 2000. No. We are now equipped with skills," Mugabe told thousands of guests to the lavish celebrations for his 91st birthday held at Victoria Falls on Saturday. The veteran leader further said his government may consider reducing the size of some farms owned by black beneficiaries to benefit upcoming generations of youths who need to go into farming. Mugabe singled out ousted Zanu PF Mashonaland East chair Ray Kaukonde for allegedly harbouring more than 160 white farmers in the agriculturally rich province.

  • Will Smith Has Come Back Down To Earth

    Two years ago, Will Smith faced something he’d never experienced before: An unforgiving box office belly-flop. Not only did After Earth open in third place with just $27.5 million — a pittance for a sci-fi adventure with a reported $130 million budget — but it opened up Smith and his son and costar Jaden Smith to a degree of unrelenting ridicule that the elder Smith had astutely avoided since he catapulted to stardom in 1995’s Independence Day. The movie did earn a face-saving $183.3 million overseas, maintaining Smith’s reputation as a global box office draw. Instead, the movie suggests a kind of new normal for Smith, neither a return to his 2000s height as the world’s biggest movie star, nor a collapse into the sad swamp of Hollywood has-beens.

Gone are the days when KwaZulu-Natal jumped hurdle after hurdle in ensuring the tsunami that is President Jacob Zuma entrenched all political hegemony. With all 11 regions having held their conference and the eThekwini region emerging under murky conditions, it has become a known secret that the tide is turning. Provincial secretary Sihle Zikalala is known to be a Zuma man, but he is haplessly watching his grip slip as rebellion takes form.

The Louisiana-based Fairfax University was established in 1986 and discontinued in 2004 when, according to Wikipedia, it relocated to the Cayman Islands.
