What a week in SA

Last week our president spoke from his own little world, where apparently South Africa changed greatly over the past 20 years, for the better; and that only those with certain historical backgrounds didn’t see the change. He said this in the same week that the DA threatened legal action against him over the Nkandla issue, calling for constitutional justice over the matter, and for him to live up to his responsibilities.

Another week in SA

What a week

It looks like we’re in for an uncomfortable week of load shedding, after a coal silo at the Majuba power station collapsed on Saturday placing major strain on the national power grid. The public has reached boiling point over crime, as our Police Minister has decided it’s time to amend the Firearms Control Act and introduce it to Parliament next year.

What a Week in SA - 27 October

Samen banner just saying

What a Week in SA! There’s been no shortage of controversy this week and it is with shock that we heard about the death of Senzo Meyiwa. The Oscar sentencing was passed and questioned as many feel the sentence is too light. Julius Malema is in the news again, having charges laid against him for assaulting a patron of a fast food restaurant. We also found out this week that there is a scrounging thief in Joburg who values his cleanliness over his freedom.

What a week 20 October | SA Men

This week we saw a Wild West style escape attempt playing out near Medunsa, North-West Province, when a group of prisoners attempted to escape from the truck they were being transported in. And in the Oscar Pistorius trial we found the spotlight being heavily focussed on South Africa’s prison system. The issue was related to the conditions and ability of the system to accommodate for disabled inmates, namely Oscar himself.

Who is REALLY to blame for the N12 accident?

N12 Accident - who is to blame? | SA Men

The cost of living and running businesses in South Africa is no joke, especially when it comes to a business that relies on using motor vehicles, trucks, buses, bakkies and vans. The petrol price increases quicker than it takes for most of us to use up a full tank of petrol, and Sanral believes it’s a great idea for us to cough-up every time we blink while driving on the highway. For road users, it’s becoming just far too expensive to maintain vehicles properly and in some instances, to drive at all.

Another week in SA | SA Men 13 Oct

With the Ebola crisis not yet affecting South Africa, would we be ready for it if it arrived in our country? This was one of the stories featured last week in the news, and although we have nothing to worry about yet, we can only hope that the authorities in charge of this sort of thing are properly prepared, and are more in sync than the EFF are. It was reported last week that certain members of the party are disgruntled and looking to spread their wings and form a new EFF – the Economic Freedom Front.

Weekly roundup 6 Oct

This week in the news we read how the water supply problems in Gauteng and other areas of South Africa have reached a point where people are finally saying, enough is enough. South Africa’s electricity and water supply is a mess and at the same time we’re trying to attract foreign investment, how on earth does it make sense then to spend billions on a new nuclear power plant? Fix the basics first, like education, health and police services and then look at other luxuries and expensive projects.

Week in SA

This weekly roundup takes a look at some of the most interesting, humorous, serious and controversial stories in the South African media landscape from the past week. We’ve all heard about the nuclear deal, which is supposed to save South Africa money in the long run, but where on earth will the government find the initial trillion rand outlay to get the project started? If the idea of putting the country further into debt isn’t crazy enough for you, a fighter jet was spotted on the N1 on its way to Midrand from the airport base in Waterkloof.
