The buildup to the general elections next month is heating up. Take a look at the DA commercial that the SABC banned for taking a jab at the ANC.
Zuma and some other high ranking members of the ANC have made a couple of controversial statements over the years. Here are a couple of gems from key figures in the ruling party.
So apparently Malema’s opinion on the state of our country post apartheid is being valued by international media, specifically the venerated Financial Times. With a front page story titled ‘Malema Targets Big Game In ANC’s Heartland,’ the widely respected publication is lending a whole boat load of legitimacy to Malema ahead of the 2014 General Elections.
Crowdsourcing volunteers help search for MH370. Trevor Manuel has left the building. GOT actor comes out. Government blames Shell for jet embarrassment. You won’t believe what Shaq spends on apps. Pistorius trial bigger than World Cup. Your Whatsapp messages might not be private.
check out this video that we’ve just received from 2oceansviber Kyle J. It shows a man removing a DA signboard from a lamp post – throwing it onto a trailer, and carrying on down the road in a bakkie.
Social media users were quick to voice their disapproval of MP Thandile Sunduza’s fashion sense after she appeared in a yellow shoulderless dress at the recent State of the Nation address. The ANC have since labeled the avalanche of derisive comments levelled at Sunduza as sexist cyber bullying.
The 2014 General Election date has been announced by the South African presidency. Voter registration closes this weekend. Will you give yourself the opportunity to vote? May 7 2014. That’s the date. It’s a Wednesday. If you aren’t registered to vote yet, cancel everything you’re doing this weekend – it’ll be your last chance. CLICK [...]
People seeing this sign during an ANC protest march yesterday in Cape Town, must have been struggling to keep a straight face. They misspelled areas as “arears” on their banner. That they still kept marching with it held aloft, shows signs of a failed education system.
Thats what’s going down today, my friends, as the municipality has given the go-ahead for the ANC’s Cape Town CBD protest march. You can imagine how Helen Zille feels about this..
FW de Klerk made that statement during a speech to mark 20 years of democracy in Cape Town. The former President pointed to the country’s Gini coefficient as evidence to support his claim. South Africa’s Gini coefficient is 0.7, which makes the country one of the most unequal societies in the world. FW ignored the whole apartheid thing that was the boss of when he quoted that figure.
ANC branches in Gauteng have included former president Thabo Mbeki in a list of individuals they would like to see in Parliament.
It’s been nearly 20 years to the day since the ANC released their 1994 national election list. Though some of the members on the list are now deceased, the ones that survive help give us an indication of how Zuma is perceived by the ANC big fish.
We posted a story about Wiekus Kotze not too long ago, when we first caught wind that he could be the first white member of Julius Malema’s EFF. Well, it seems that poor Wiekus has been put to the social media sword by the furious trolls within the Afrikaner community, who see his allegiance with Malema as “a betrayal of his white skin.”
ANC members at the ANC Manifesto launch made sure they injected more than just money into the local community. It is reported that the local sex worker fraternity made an absolute killing plying their trade, including some ‘quickies’ in luxury vehicles..
51% of ANC want Zuma gone. Top Pistorius cop quits. Attack on popular Cape Town trail. Another country lands on the moon. Fake interpreter part of necklace murder. Google makes massive purchase. Cressida gets unprecedented invite. Beyonce shatters records.
Booing Zuma: Is this the turning point? Obama / Castro handshake shock. Murdoch’s paper runs secret insult. Twitter takes on Snapchat threat. New York’s new free wi-fi zone will cover nearly 100 blocks. Pussy Riot could be freed. Guess what Bieber did this time..
While Mandela certainly deserves the amount of praise he has received in the past few days, there is also plenty of credit that is due to those people who were behind him all the time. People like Zelda La Grange.
Eish. We kinda knew that stuff like this was on its way. An article, entitled “Mandela’s Death Highlights How Messed Up South Africa Is Now” was recently published on Business Insider.
While the ANC was busy pointing fingers at Thuli Madonsela for leaking the Nkandla report, South Africa slipped to its lowest-ever spot on the global corruption charts.
Public protector, Thuli Madonsela, has come through with the goods yet again. This time, they come in the form of three damning reports that expose gross misconduct, deceit, unlawful acts and outright corruption at the highest level of government.
Tony Ehrenreich is South African trade-unionist and regional secretary of the Western Cape region of COSATU. He’s also a social media badass, and has absolutely no time for you if you have more tweets than followers. Check this out.
Meet Loyiso Nkohla. Loyiso is the ANC councillor for Ward 98 in Khayelitsha, and a member of the Cape Town provincial Health Portfolio Committee. Loyiso is the man who may be responsible for the riots in Cape Town’s CBD today. This last weekend, Nkohla addressed a gathering of residents in Nyanga’s KTC Hall. The meeting [...]
Elections are fast approaching, and those among us who have dodged democratic apathy will soon be queuing outside toll booths across South Africa, in an attempt to make our great country better. As with any election, this one will come with as much pre-election hype as it will post-election hype. As part of the hype, we have people like Stephen Grootes who predict that the ANC will win by a landslide 61%.
There is a lot going on in the news at the mo with regards to the rollout of this new ‘E-toll’ vibe. The DA even ran billboards mocking the ANC. Watch this video to get to grips with the whole thing.
Guess who’s behind those e-toll billboards? Gupta wedding guests were on their way to Zuma. Twitter investors buy wrong stock – price soars. Price Harry set to marry. China: 417,000 evacuated. Syria chemical weapon destruction begins. Kid sneaks on plane – goes to Vegas.
Well, this is just delightful. An outspoken but thus-far anonymous critic of the e-Tolls system in Johannesburg has erected massive advertising-grade billboards on the side of the N1 and N3, reading “E-tolls. Proudly brought to you by the ANC.”
The South African Minister Of Arts And Culture is a super frugal guy. His department spent R3,125 to hire the P-meister an Audi A5 for a total of two days last year. Our selfless servant of the people put the luxury sedan to excellent use, and drove a staggering 1,000 metres in it for the 48 hours in which it was in his department’s hire.
Ariel Castro hanged himself. Attempt made to burn down ANC headquarters. Senators back Obama. Russia warns citizens about traveling to US. 3 changes to Bok side. Rodman heading back to North Korea. ’50 shades’ fans upset about cast. E-cig makers go to war.
The Democratic Alliance is claiming that 50 ANC members in the Western Cape defected to their party this weekend at a community meeting in Kraaifontein.
Blackberry for sale. Sales Assistant says Oprah is lying. England win Ashes. Dan Carter out. ANC Councillor shot dead. Whitey Bulger found guilty. Justin Bieber sings naked for his gran [pics]. Norway’s PM pretends to be cab driver.
