The message was simple: the DRC’s president, Joseph Kabila, must obey the Constitution and leave office in December when his second — and supposedly final — term ends. “We have had enough of Mr Kabila,” said one woman, peeling away from her choir. “We want him to get out of the way and let us organise elections.”
The DRC is shellshocked after a peaceful protest turned deadly, yet its president remains invisible.

Selling South Africa as a good-news story to international investors at the moment is an unenviable task. Details of political skulduggery continue to emerge and pressures on the budget, such as the demand for free tertiary education, populate the news on both local and global channels.
The political turmoil aside, there are positive signs that the country is heading for better times.

Nonsense !!
BRICS love us here in RSA.

Surely you people in the media know how much China & Russia invest in SA.

Narrow conceptions and caricatures of Arab identity are deeply rooted in Hollywood. The hijacker and the terrorist, the opulently wealthy oil sheikh and the oppressed and over-dressed woman, among others, comprise the most prominent depictions of Arab identity in film and television.
The rich milieu of groups native to the Middle East has no place in codified constructions of US race and ethnicity.

When the logic of repeated shutdowns of higher education institutions becomes the norm, there can only be narrow outcomes, says Wits Professor Achille Mbembe.
African universities were once considered vital tools for nation building and destroying them risks reversing the developmental gains we have made.

Close the universities down, blacks do not need to learn about british history & be taught foreign concepts in foreign languages.
SA universities are brainwashing camps for the locals.

ANALYSIS: Although the Hawks have doggedly hounded Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan, they’ve only dedicated a lone investigator to handle a complex multibillion-rand fraud and corruption scandal unearthed at Prasa.
Only one investigator left to deal with mountains of evidence in rail authority corruption probe.

It is pretty easy to destroy institutions. But there is no guarantee that once the destruction is over and violence recedes, those institutions will be easily rebuilt.

Research suggests mental health interventions might be necessary for some members of the community who were directly exposed to the violence that ensues during protests.
There is not a significant amount of empirical research data that shows the link between violent protest and emotional trauma.

The minister’s brother-in-law is coining millions of rand from a printing contract that has ‘expired’.

How will history judge you? Emily Hobhouse, reviled and repudiated by most of her British contemporaries, as well as loyal “colonists”, would have been gratified to know how her reputation and work have been rehabilitated and recognised a century later.
Rejected by the Empire, beloved in South Africa, Hobhouse stood for justice, feminism and pacifism

All her plea's fell on deaf ears in London.

The british colonialists still killed thousands of Boers & black africans for SA's gold, plus they stole all the land in RSA with the Native Land Act of 1913.

Where is our compensation today ?

Jews are still compensated by Germany & others for WW11.

Blacks & Afrikaners must still be taught in English at university & school level as a cherry on the cake.

Is that freedom ?

Madiba was also stage managed by the same bunch of mining executives from London.

The deaths of 36 Life Esidimeni mental health patients is a wake up call that came too late.
The callous disregard shown at many levels for the wellbeing of vulnerable people proved fatal.

EDITORIAL: Gwede Mantashe's idea of shutting down universities to quash dissent and punish protesters has terrible precedents in Africa.
The ANC secretary general's thought that he would have preferred to shut universities down to deal with protests is very ill-informed.
