    Fake pamphlet furore Article By: Tue, 24 Feb 2009 11:24 The DA in Mpumalanga has laid charges against the ANC for allegedly distributing fake DA pamphlets, said a spokesperson. A case was opened at the Middelburg police station, said Democratic Alliance spokesperson Anthony Benadie. "Charges are impersonation and false distribution," he said adding that a complaint had also been laid with the Independent Electoral Commission. He said the Electoral Act prohibited people from "impersonating" other parties and or candidates, as well from distributing false information. In a statement Benadie said that according to information in its possession, ANC candidate in the upcoming by-elections Jaenette Mahlangu distributed the pamphlet to pupils at the Middelburg Mine Combined school in the Steve Tshwete Municipality last Friday. The offending pamphlet "In the pamphlet, the DA is portrayed as a racist party, claiming that the DA wants to bring back the days of 'permits', i...... Read Full Post

    Genocide 'possible' in Zim 24/06/2008 12:19 - (SA) London - The violence in Zimbabwe could descend into genocide like that in Rwanda in 1994, former international envoy Paddy Ashdown warned on Tuesday. Military intervention in Zimbabwe had to remain an option, the former High Representative for Bosnia told The Times newspaper, while also lamenting the "thunderous" silence of South African President Thabo Mbeki. "The situation in Zimbabwe could deteriorate to a point where genocide could be a possible outcome - something that looks like Rwanda," he said, referring to the slaughter by ethnic Hutus of some 800 000 people, mainly Tutsis. Ashdown added that were the situation to deteriorate to that point, military intervention, with Britain playing a "delicate role" due to its history as Zimbabwe's former colonial ruler, would have to be an option. Morgan Tsvangirai, Zimbabwe's main opposition leader, had pulled out of Friday's presidential election run-off against the i...... Read Full Post

    News24 'Mugabe behaving like a warlord' 19/06/2008 14:03 - (SA) Harare, Zimbabwe - Four opposition party activists were killed in a firebombing near Harare overnight, the party said on Thursday, the attack carried out even as South African President Thabo Mbeki was in Zimbabwe on a mediation mission. The opposition has said more than 60 of its activists have been killed in recent weeks, and accuses President Robert Mugabe of unleashing widespread violence to ensure victory over Movement for Democratic Change candidate Morgan Tsvangirai in a presidential run-off to be held in just over a week. Independent human rights activists have implicated police and soldiers as well as Mugabe party militants in the violence. Movement for Democratic Change spokesperson Nqobizitha Mlilo said that militants linked to Mugabe's party were seen in the area before the firebomb attack on the home of one party activist. Mlilo said the activist and three colleagues were killed, an unusually...... Read Full Post

    “On behalf of the City of Cape Town I condemn the xenophobic attacks that have taken place here and throughout South Africa. I call on the communities of our city to work together to bring peace and stability. We now have around 20 000 displaced people in Cape Town, most of whom are staying in six safe areas in different parts of the metro region, as well as community halls across the city. No-one is forced to go to these sites, or to remain there. Yet thousands of people are coming to them as a base from which they can exercise further options. From there they can decide whether to choose reintegration into their communities, or return to their countries of origin. We would like to support the choices they make but the process falls way outside local government competencies. We urgently need national government, the United Nations, and the embassies of the countries of origin of the displaced people to play a leading role in the process. We share concerns about......

  • Posted 26 May 2008 by Bradlo 25/05/2008 10:06 - (SA) Johannesburg - South African President Thabo Mbeki, already under fire for perceived policy failings that caused an anti-immigrant backlash in his country, now faces questions about his handling of the crisis. The head of state is yet to visit the worst affected areas of Johannesburg after two weeks of violence against foreigners that has left more than 40 dead and more than 25 000 displaced. His pronouncements have been limited to a statement given to newspapers more than a week after trouble began, a promise to create an investigating committee, and a brief comment carried by state radio SABC on Saturday in which he talked of "the humiliating disgrace" of the episode. Despite spreading violence, which began in Johannesburg two weeks ago but has now hit seven of the country's nine provinces, he has not made a public address on the radio or television to appeal for calm. A strong appeal "A strong appeal to the South African pe...... Read Full Post

  • Posted 23 May 2008 by Bradlo Xenophobia 'is just an excuse' 23/05/2008 09:48 - (SA) Durban - Criminals are using xenophobia as a "perfect excuse" to commit crime, KwaZulu-Natal safety and security MEC Bheki Cele said on Friday. He was responding as details of several overnight attacks on foreigners were reported to police. "I am just concerned that criminals are using xenophobia as an excuse to commit crimes...Why else would they steal the foreigners' belongings? "If you want someone to leave, you just tell them and then watch them leave...Why does one have to chase them and steal their goods?" he asked. He said he had spoken to some foreigners and was told "astounding things". A list of all the foreigners "I was told that those attacking foreigners had a list of all the foreigners and details of where they stayed. This is because some foreigners were being harassed since 1992 and their attackers live nearby," he said. Police spokesperson Director Phindile Radebe said on T...... Read Full Post
