By Luzuko Bashman As a member of the African National Congress (ANC), I have noted with disgust the unwarranted attack by Mr. Adriaan Basson on comrade Nomvula Mokonyane for having attended the memorial service of comrade Gavin Watson, and delivering a eulogy in recognition of the contribution that comrade Watson made to the liberation struggle in our country. Mr. Basson presents...
The relationship between Nehawu and SACP has not served any purpose to over 2000 workers employed in various sector education and training authorities (SETAs) where Nehawu enjoys being the only player. One would expect such a relationship to strengthen the SACP, but sadly, workers have a different tale to tell. The redeployment of Minister Blade Nzimande back to Higher Education...
By Paul Ngobeni – Legal Analyst In firing Jiba as Deputy National Director of Public Prosecutions, Ramaphosa made history — albeit of a dubious kind. He flagrantly violated an explicit court order, transgressed the limits of his constitutional powers and, above all else messed with a wrong woman. Ramaphosa assumed, incorrectly as it turned out, that if he fired Jiba...
By: Clyde Ramalaine  Political correctness, in a form of expediency, defines an apparent quest for social cohesion which in turn demands that some topics are skirted around in our discourse. I, therefore, expect to be accused of being divisive and not working for social cohesion. Let me then upfront put my disclaimer, I do not think social cohesion is a sacred...
By: Independent Media(Sifiso Mahlangu) Johannesburg - For some time writers Ed Herbst, Jackie Cameron, and Adriaan Basson have made it their project to insult and injure the person and the business of Dr. Iqbal Survé. The campaign against Independent Media and its journalists are developed through fictitious and vicious argument and opinion pieces by people we considered colleagues. Now, while it is...
CAPE TOWN – Hot on the heels of the recent exposé of President Cyril Ramaphosa’s CR17 election campaign, there is new information that has surfaced that could give the president even more of a headache. It transpires that payments linked to a campaign account, totaling R21 million in three tranches in March 2018, were paid into the account of his...
By: Clyde Ramalaine Your Honour this court is about to entertain a claim that translates to a charge which must seek relief on behalf of the applicant Mr. D. Hanekom as brought against the respondent our client Mr. J.G Zuma. Central and perhaps in singular sense in support of such an application is a tweet before us in which the respondent...
By: Floyd Shivambu We normally don’t dignify less intelligent hogwash by paid journalists because, in many instances, such amounts to wrestling in the mud, and at that, they are experts. One Adriaan Basson of News24 wrote hogwash about an imaginary fightback plan, which he nauseatingly claims included the EFF, Jacob Zuma, Ace Magashule and Sunday Independent investigative journalists. He’s evidently taking the...
By: Siyabonga Hadebe The hit single by the late US rapper The Notorious B.I.G titled ‘Mo Money Mo Problems’ hopefully makes more sense to many people now than it did when it was released over two decades ago. This is especially true in lieu of what the ANC and South Africa are presently going through - money in politics proves to be...
By: Clyde Ramalaine Separating the chaff from the wheat is an axiom generally used to distinguish between the substance and the flaky. News 24 on August 15, 2019, carried an article in content essentially attributed to ANC bigwig, Jessie Duarte. In such, she enters the discourse in attempts of rebutting a demand for ANC and SA President Ramaphosa to 'come...
