  • White settlers never stole any land from Africans: iLIVE

    Black Africans never owned any land. Black Africans NEVER owned any land. Who "disadvantaged" the 'black' people of the interior in Southern Africa before the (supposed) belligerent 'white' settlers moved inland in the mid 19th century..? As certainly, what the 'settlers' found was not a hugely advanced infrastructure, deep mines, airports, vast libraries of written works, grandiose institutions of learning, etc. No, as little as 170 years ago they found masses of black people (indigenous to the Southern tip of Africa, The San) living on the fringes of the stone age.

  • 'We've found another Earth'

    Not only is this planet in the "Goldilocks zone" - where life can exist because it is neither too hot nor too cold to support liquid water - its star looks like an older cousin of our sun, the space agency said. Known as Kepler 452b, the planet was detected by the agency's Kepler Space Telescope, which has hunted for worlds like ours since 2009. "Kepler 452b is orbiting a close cousin of our sun, but one that is 1.5 billion years older," it said. If the planet is rocky, and the scientists believe that it has a better than even chance of being just that, then it could be in the midst of a fearful scenario, as the heat from its dying star evaporates Kepler 452b's lakes and oceans.

    The Department of Home Affairs has released for public comment a new application form that requires asylum seekers to specify how much money they have in South Africa and how they intend to support themselves here. An asylum seeker who fled his country is unlikely to have taken any of this information with him or to be able to contact a previous employer," said Roni Amit, a senior researcher at the African Centre for Migration and Society.

The Concerned Citizens Group, which claimed to represent thousands of residents in towns along the province's South Coast, has not "put a stop" to the nudist beach, as it had planned to do. "It seems as if all those who were opposing the beach have ridden into the sunset," said SA National Naturists Association chairman Serge Pavlovic yesterday.

  • Floyd Shivambu in papgeld drama - SundayWorld

    Morake allegedly dumped Shivambu because "he is stupid and lacks respect, leads a fake life" and "lied about breaking up with his ex-fiancee", former SABC2 weather presenter Andile Masuku when he dated her. Morake, who said the EFF Parliamentary chief whip, earns close to a R1-million a year, pleaded with the Randburg Maintenance Court on Friday to dock over R2000 from his salary because he was a dead beat dad. Shivambu's alleged failure to support the child is likely to project his party in a negative light as it was the only organisation in parliament which objected to the Maintenance Amendment Bill. The bill, which has been sent to the National Council of Provinces (NCOP) for concurrence, will see maintenance dodgers blacklisted.
