Never a dull moment in our colourful, local politics. Up next, vice-chancellor of UFS, believes Jordan should be given a Doctorate, for gees?!
Following the politician’s resignation and revelation of his false claims, it has been revealed where the idea of having a doctorate may have come from, and it is not a university… surprise surprise.
In this day and age where social media is pretty much your public front, you do have to be aware of what you post on it. This is particularly true when you are affiliated in any way with politics… did this woman not realise this?
Phew! Pres. Jay Z seems to back to his usual charming self… or is that a front? He has insisted, in this video posted to the ANC’s YouTube channel, that he is so healthy it would make younger people jealous! Did he take it a bit far there…?
Honourable readers, we all know it is important to know what it is our government has said they’ll do so we can hold them accountable, but good gracious was it long winded and soporific! Anything really get you riled up?
This is what the ANC and the SABC do not want you to see….
When DA MP, Michael Waters tweeted a picture captioned “Voting Day. Make your mark”, showing a line of dogs urinating on an election poster of Jacob Zuma, he may not have considered the full scope of his actions. Or the full scope of Twitter.
This trend in political thinking is absolutely shocking! Slating criticism as too clever? Come on Jacob….don’t be a child.
Judging by the writeups in City Press and others (with no links to the video), the mob-lunching of a woman will not be investigated because the footage might be “a bit old.” I’m sorry, I don’t quite follow..
A cellphone video has emerged of a woman being hauled off the back of a bakkie and delivered to a crazed mob, who proceed to beat the woman until she is seemingly dead.
Results are in, press conferences held, and the gloves have come off! All the latest post-election mudslinging here…
OMG the ANC appear to be making a musical! And the lucky target market: The Western Cape. Complete with Kaapse-Liedtjies, a brass band and a little Mandela name dropping. Must see!
Oh dear Mbalula, what have you said now? It looks like an apology by the ANC to yet ANOTHER African country will need to be made after this guy went and said something rather embarrassing. Again. On Tuesday, Fikile Mbalula who is our country’s Minister of Sport and Recreation, sat at a meeting with some […]
Desmond is back with the same high level of empathy and insight that you’ve come to expect from the man. The Mail & Guardian’s journos caught up with him for an interview in which he urged South African voters to not be “voting cattle” when they cast their vote in the upcoming general elections. Here […]
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.
