    After trying to dupe SA at state capture inquiry, Zuma has proved he is the idiot

    Let us state it categorically - this is all nonsensical smoke and mirrors. None of Zuma's pseudo-intelligence hocus pocus exists. How do we prove that someone has been trying to kill Zuma, or that Zuma is not the one who organised someone to call his own PA to "tell Zuma that we will kill him and his children"? Zuma knows that the average Joe in KwaZulu-Natal watching television will not ask questions when their Msholozi says: "Last night between 7 and 8 someone called my PA." The unthinking ruralitarian reaction there is almost predictable: "Mayibaboooo!" When you bring in children, the dramatic effect intensifies - even though the lies are obvious. If anyone were to conduct a family audit,

    Cape Flats gangs say 'army won't touch us'

    Cape Town - Gangs on the Cape Flats say they do not fear the army and will carry on with their “operations” as normal. In fact, some gang bosses welcome the idea of soldiers on the Flats, saying fewer innocent people will die now. Police Minister Bheki Cele last week announced that the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) would be deployed on the Cape Flats for the next three months to root out gang violence. But gangsters say they are not afraid of the army.  High-ranking members from several gangs on the Cape Flats spoke to the Daily Voice on condition of anonymity. A member of the Dixie Boys said: “Die army moet maar kom, my girl, ons kannie nog worry nie. (The army can come my girl,

    Serena Williams isn't bothered by fashion critics

    Serena Williams says her life is "far too complicated" to worry about her critics as she is only focused on her family and her career. The tennis star isn't bothered by other people's opinions any more as her focus is on her family - husband Alexis Ohanian and their daughter Alexis Jr. - and her career. She said: "People always have things to say when you're wearing fashion. It could be good things. It could be bad things. I don't care what people say. I'm like just so past it - you could say whatever you want to say. Honestly, you're allowed to have your opinion. My life is far too complicated to worry about people that want to say mean things. I have a daughter, I have a family, I have a career.

    Magents prays Pirates kit brings '95 'spark'

    The new Orlando Pirates kit which is identical to the one the Buccaneers wore during their historic CAF Champions League triumph in 1995, will revitalise the current class. This is the view of the ever-entertaining Bucs legend Edward "Magents" Motale, who played a key role in the club's Champions League glory of 1995. This remains the club's only continental triumph. "This jersey is beautiful. It will bring that spark ... if you put it on, you feel strong. I have high hopes that the team will win many trophies with this jersey," the humorous Motale said at the jersey launch at Orlando Stadium yesterday. "This is a winning jersey, we want no excuses this season. We are tired of being runners-up.
