R30.2 billion on improving rail travel sounds great. Now can you prove that you're not using it to build a gravy train, Sibs?

Thank goodness the SA government is doing something about this - finally!

Rhinos are poached for their horns, which are widely considered by the Chinese to be a key ingredient in aphrodisiac substances. But there is little proof in conventional medicine that proves this. Up until March this year, at least 40 rhinos a month were being maimed and slaughtered to fuel this sadly thriving industry.

Here's a question: should the media give airtime to politicians who use it and abuse it for their benefit if they know that that politician's popularity stems largely from his presence in the media in the first place? If that politician is dangerous to his country, can the media not play a role in reining him in by simply ignoring him? I know it's not the media's place to sway politics but it is sure giving one particular politician a hell of a lot of power, or at least a hell of a sense of power...

Interested to hear your views.

Unfortunately some of the media will only think of their own pockets... airing a popular speaker equals more viewers, airing someone with diverse opinions equals more attention from non-viewers... and of course, the possible future benefits from a government official who they helped to get there... They can't lose...except for their integrity - but not airing "dangerous politicians" would mean they will have to take a standpoint based upon biased decisions, and that is in conflict with the media's objectivity clause (please note the sarcasm)

Cosatu follows the Democratic Alliance's lead in calling for an investigation into ANCYL President Julius Malema's finances following news he is building a R15-million house in Johannesburg.

It's a little old now, but it's a harrowing story of what loopholes and negligence in criminal prosecution can do to people's lives...
