Another week in SA

Weekly news SA

The government last week revealed controversial plans to curb the problem of underage sex in schools. In theory, it’s a possibly effective method, however the plan could have other dire consequences on our youth and the ever-rising problem of children having underage sex. Last week we also heard about the continuing judgement in the 28’s Gang case, where they have racked up hundreds of murder charges. The Gang leader is also accused of ordering hits from prison on witnesses in his case.

What a Week in SA!

The past week has to go down as one the darkest in South Africa’s history with the widespread Xenophobic attacks taking place across the country. Sparked by irresponsible comments form a traditonal leader, and perhaps imminent due to the lack of border control and proper management of immigration laws. The spate of violence has been horrendous and in no way serves the people of this country or the relations with other African countries.

Finally the president has decided to voice his opinion on the recent spate of historical satue vandalism which has been wreaking havoc in P.E., Cape Town, Pretoria and Durban. He speaks with reason, but is it enough to cease the growing racial divide, evident from the comments section on the news sites where these stories are provided?

South Africa news week

Over the past few weeks, South Africa has seen a trend developing around the eradication of colonial and historical statues in places like PE and Pretoria. It started with the debate surrounding the Rhodes statue at UCT, and it seems that the EFF has jumped on the band wagon, claiming responsibility for defacing and attempting to destroy a number of these structures.

Whacky week in SA

Samen banner just saying

Some of last week’s news could only have happened in South Africa. Last week we read how a naval vessel mistakenly fired on a fishing vessel in the Cape. Nelson Mandela Bridge was temporarily closed due to a bomb scare, and how a man was shot and killed by police after trying to steal 21 sheep in Schweizer-Reneke. However, the story of the week has to be about the deputy speaker in the Limpopo legislature, Lehlogonolo Masoga, who allegedly managed to spend over R100,000 on porn from his cell phone.

Another week in SA

Weekly news SA

There was a very insightful article released last week on Money Web Today’s website about the trend of Emigrating or Semigrating in South Africa. It basically looked at the reasons for people emigrating to foreign countries or ‘semigrating’ to the Western Cape. As South Africans we see regular stories in the news about corruption, violent crime, the lack of racial transformation, lack of service delivery, and this all leads to an unstable perception of the countrys future.

Weekly news SA

This last week in SA has once again proven that we are a nation of immense potential, and at the same time have major issues in our society. According to a report last week, South Africans owe billions to SARS, municipalities and traffic departments in un-collected debt. But on the bright side, those brazen muggers who were caught red-handed on live tv, while mugging SABC journalists on Tuesday night have been caught.

SA Men weekly round-up

Last week in SA certainly wasn’t an ordinary one. We received the 2015 Budget speech, which may or may not have played in your favour. We also watched as The Tulip hotel was imploded in Cape Town to make way for a new property development project. And an official army supplier was dooped into delivering almost R3million worth of meat and booze to a supposed army procurement officer.
