The Sunday Times Rich List, to be published next week, shows that three mining bosses are among the top 10 richest in the country - Glasenberg (worth R60-billion), Patrice Motsepe (worth more than R18.4-billion), and Des Sacco (R13.5-billion). By contrast, mineworkers continue to fight for a R12500 monthly minimum wage. The disclosures about high pay have drawn widespread condemnation. A Sunday Times analysis shows that the best-paid chief executive last year, Old Mutual boss Julian Roberts, who took home R73-million, earned as much as 483 times the much-contested R12500 per month. Among companies with headquarters in South Africa, Sasol CEO David Constable earned R4.4-million a month, about 383 times the mineworkers' demand. Shoprite CEO Whitey Basson, who made R49.6-million last year - the same he earned the previous year - still made 333 times more than the R12500 figure. Chris Griffith, whose Anglo American Platinum retrenched many workers last year, took home R12.9-million last year, including a R4-m ...
Oscar Pistorius'' Conviction Appeal Process will be Activated Pretoria, Nov 3 (Prensa Latina) The National Prosecuting Authority of South Africa (SNAP) will begin today to appeal against conviction and sentence of Paralympic and Olympic sprinter Oscar Pistorius, said media. On 21 October last the High Court of North Gauteng, Pretoria, sentenced Pistoriusto five years in prison for the negligent homicide of his girlfriend, law graduate and model Reeva Steenkamp, in February 2013. According to the Sunday Times, State prosecutor Gerrie Nel has already completed the preparation of documents for the appeal along with the main director of SNAP Mxolisi Nxasana. We will present a procedure of claim on the basis of strict law. Our experts are adapting the necessary files and evaluating the merits and demerits of the argument, said agency spokesman Nathi Mncube. At the end of the trial, Nel was not satisfied with the verdict, his ministry requested life imprisonment for premeditated murder, and after consultation w ...
Warning: Long read This is a speech made by former South African President P.W. Botha to his Cabinet. This reprint was written by David G. Mailu for the Sunday Times of August 18, 1985. "Pretoria has been made by the White mind for the White man. We are not obliged even the least to try to prove to anybody and to the Blacks that we are superior people. We have demonstrated that to the Blacks in a thousand and one ways. The Republic of South Africa that we know of today has not been created by wishful thinking. We have created it at the expense of intelligence, sweat and blood. Were they Afrikaners who tried to eliminate the Australian Aborigines? Are they Afrikaners who discriminate against Blacks and call them *** in the States? Were they Afrikaners who started the slave trade? Where is the Black man appreciated? England discriminates against its Black and their "Sus" law is out to discipline the Blacks. Canada, France, Russia, and Japan all play their discrimination too. Why in the *** then is so m ...

Why? Why? Let's think workable solution this does not work. Plan to share farms with workers on track 2014-06-22 Sharing farms with workers won't work – Johannesburg - Commercial agriculture stakeholders, including farmers, farm workers and trade unions, have until April next year to respond to Rural Development and Land Reform Minister Gugile Nkwinti's policy proposals that could see farmers handing over 50% of their land to their workers. According to the Sunday Times, Nkwinti said the land reform plan - which was published last week - was reflective of the ANC policy decision, through the Freedom Charter, to turn away from radical African nationalism and to embrace the concept that South Africa belongs to all who live in it - black and white - and that the land should be shared among those who work it. AgriSA's deputy president Theo de Jager however said that organised agriculture would reject Nkinti’s proposals. He said the move could also lead to massive job losses as farmers could let workers go ...
The real reasons Mazibuko left the DA parliamentary leadership by Gareth van Onselen ON SUNDAY Democratic Alliance (DA) parliamentary leader Lindiwe Mazibuko announced she would not be returning to Parliament post election. She set out her reasoning in an article for the Sunday Times Newspaper, in which she argued she intended to study abroad in order to broaden her prospects. She suggested she might return to the DA at some point in the future. From that statement, a singular fact is significant: faced with the prospect of leading a growing party in the National Assembly as the constitutionally recognised leader of the opposition, Mazibuko chose instead to return to university. The loss to the DA and South Africa is profound. Mazibuko was a superstar. How is it that the DA has come to lose someone who embodied all its best qualities? To answer that question, one needs to better understand the current internal condition of the party. Elections, particularly those with that result in growth, are vital to a ...

S Grootes: True lessons of the Ramphele fiasco Stephen Grootes The last week has been dominated by news, this time not of ructions within the ANC or Cosatu or Numsa, but by developments within the DA. The announcement that Mamphela Ramphele (the pronunciation of which is a work in progress, while thankfully the spelling is not) was going to be the presidential candidate for the DA was described, famously, as a "game–changer" for our politics. However, events have moved on, fairly dramatically since then, and we've already seen this particular marriage end embarrassingly in the divorce court. Developments reveal several things about our politics: that race matters, that class politics is still some way away, that politicians will do almost anything to get ahead, and that the DA is at last becoming a party that can be part of the national conversation. But it also reveals that candidates with massive egos and without a devoted base simply cannot hack it in South Africa. The Sunday Times lead this weekend ...
(Stefanie) Tia Mysoa THE BATTLE FOR OVERSEAS VOTERS HAS BEGUN! ANC deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa is to lead an ANC delegation to Perth, Australia, to woo South African voters living there and possibly establish a branch of the party, according to a report. "The ANC is a non-racial organisation, and obviously we will not leave out any voters that are likely to vote for us," African National Congress international relations subcommittee head and deputy minister in the presidency Obed Bapela told the The Sunday Times. "So we will be targeting Australia because of the number of South Africans that are there." According to the report, an estimated 80,000 South Africans lived in Australia. He said that the South Africans in Australia are those who left when they said the crime was too much, and 20 years into democracy, they had reconnected with South Africa. "It's more a fact-finding mission in Australia, unlike the UK... When we get the numbers that we think are encouraging,, we might ask them to establish ...

SA's rich continue to get richer Johannesburg - The collective wealth of the 20 richest people in South Africa grew by 8.6% compared to last year, the Sunday Times reported. The mining and manufacturing sectors suffered, while retail, health and media sectors gained in value. Shoprite magnate Christo Wiese toppled mining businessman Patrice Motsepe as the wealthiest South African. His assets were deemed close to R27.5bn at the end of March, compared to a wealth of R15.2bn at the same time last year. Last year's third place holder Lakshmi Mittal took a plunge down six places and was replaced by Aspen Pharmacare boss Stephen Saad. Fourth place went to Assore mining company's Desmond Sacco and the Rembrandt Trust - connected to the Rupert family - came in at fifth place. ANC deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa came in at number 19 on the list with stakes listed in Bidvest, Mondi, MTN, SABMiller and the Standard Bank Group. Former national director of public prosecutions Bulelani Ngcuka was placed 137 on the lis ...
Former US president Jimmy Carter nearl punched former SA president Thabo Mbeki over HIV/Aids treatment in the country, the Sunday Times reported. "The first time I came here to Cape Town I almost got in a fight with the president of South Africa, Thabo Mbeki, because he was refusing to let Aids be treated," Carter told the newspaper. He said at the time, then-health minister Manto Tshabalala-Msimang was standing with Mbeki. "That's the closest I've come to getting into a fist fight with a head of state". Carter said he and Bill Gates senior were trying to convince Mbeki to at least provide antiretroviral treatment to pregnant women with Aids, "but Mbeki was against that". *
"I was SHOCKED to read in the Sunday Times that the newly appointed premier of Northern Cape spent an ''astonishing R53159 on food during her first 10 weeks in office'' She used tax payers money to buy KFC ,STEERS BURGERS AND FOOD AT SPUR.

Do you think the president should fire her? and will he?" - Peter Marais
South Africa: Zuma Axes Three Ministers President Jacob Zuma announces changes in the National Executive during a special media briefing held at the Union Buildings in Pretoria. Embattled Communication Minister Dina Pule, Human Settlements Minister Tokyo Sexwale and Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs Minister Richard Baloyi lost their jobs. This is the fourth time Zuma has reshuffled his Cabinet since 2010. Pule was replaced by Co-operative Governance Deputy Minister Yunus Carrim. She has been embroiled in a battle with the Sunday Times about reports on allegations of corruption. At a media briefing in April, she alleged that the Sunday Times was staging a smear and blackmail campaign against her. In the newspaper's reports, she was accused of giving tenders to a boyfriend, meddling in tender processes, and interfering in the appointment of officials to the boards of state-owned enterprises. Zuma announced that Sexwale would be replaced by African National Congress MP Connie September. Sexwal ...
South African slang you supposed to know 40 South Africanisms you should know To help foreigners be well prepared for their visit to South Africa, the Sunday Times has devised this handy lingo guide: BABELAS (bubble-us): hangover: usage: “jeez, I had too many dops last night. I’ve got a hectic babelas.” BAKKIE (bucky): What Americans would term a “pick up”. A two seater light vehicle with an open rear cargo area.

Ingerland ! From EH HQ England Women’s Head Coach Jason Lee has selected the 18 athletes who will contest the Investec Hockey World League Semi Final in London from 22-30 June.

South Africa investigates Libyan claims on stashed Gaddafi assets JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - South Africa's Treasury is looking into Libyan assertions that slain leader Muammar Gaddafi and his family stashed money and other assets in the country, a spokesman said on Sunday. "There was a group that approached Treasury claiming to represent the Libyan government and we are in the process of verifying their claims about assets that are in South Africa," Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan's spokesman Jabulani Sikhakhane said. The Sunday Times Newspaper said Libyan investigators had met Gordhan and President Jacob Zuma to discuss locating and repatriating more than $1 billion in cash, gold and diamonds said to have been brought into South Africa by the family of Gaddafi, who was ousted and killed during a revolt in 2011, The Gaddafi assets were held by four banks and security companies in South Africa, the Sunday Times said.
Gaddafi billions held in SA - report Assets worth billions belonging to slain Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi are thought to be held by South African banks, the Sunday Times reported. "National Treasury was approached by a group claiming to be representatives of the Libyan government," Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan's spokesperson Jabulani Sikhakhane told the newspaper. It reported that Libyan investigators had found evidence that more than $1bn (about R10bn) in cash, gold and diamonds was being held by four South African banks and two local security companies. "The process of verifying the group's claim is under way," said Sikhakhane. Libyan embassy official Salah Marghani told the Sunday Times investigators had "been appointed to investigate and secure assets in Africa on behalf of the people of Libya". The Sunday Times published extracts of letters from Libya's justice and Finance Ministers to their South African counterparts, asking for help finding assets linked to Gaddafi which might "have been ill ...

Celtic's major doubts Georgios Samaras and Efe Ambrose will be given every chance to feature against Juventus. Samaras is battling to recover from a hamstring injury. Ambrose played for Nigeria in their Africa Cup of Nations final win over Burkina Faso on Sunday and will not be back in Glasgow until Tuesday morning. And Juve midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah, who featured for Ghana at the tournament in South Africa, is unlikely to be involved in Glasgow. The hosts are boosted by Emilio Izaguirre's recovery from a knee injury while winger James Forrest is fit again after a hamstring problem. Celtic manager Neil Lennon: "It is as you were with Samaras, we will make a decision on him on Tuesday. "Izaguirre trained today and has joined the squad and Forrest is fit and Ambrose, we expect to arrive on Tuesday morning. "We will see what condition he is in and if he is OK, we will have him in the squad. "We will give Georgios as much time as is needed.

Writing in the Sunday Times, Ramaphosa placed great emphasis on the National Development Plan (NDP) as goverment’s blueprint to boost, among others, the economy, job creation and investment. “Fortunately, most sectors of society — including the cabinet - have accepted and endorsed the plan,” Ramaphosa is quoted as saying in the article. He said the next step would be to make hard policy choices and implement them. “The plan is to get South Africa working, and the NDP contains a set of interventions that will lead us to growth and development - and we need both.” He said the instability of global financial markets, coupled with downgrades by two ratings agencies should spur the country on to increase domestic savings for investments. Ramaphosa encouraged the public to participate in dialogue and buy into the NDP. “Social partners need to understand that what is at stake is the future of our country, and an entire generation of youths that will be lost if we concern ourselves with narrow secto ...
Cyril Ramaphosa in the Sunday Times: “We must Unite to get South Africa working”. Cyril Ramaphosa is a welcome addition to the state machinery and his call is to be heeded: He calls us to sing from the same hymn page: Unity, as in the well known Christmas carol, O come ye all faithful. But like all good hymns the gems are to be found in the verses. Here is a quote from Cyril R: “In this regard, the conference reaffirmed the centrality of the developmental state inn driving economic development, and the NDP calls for the strengthening of state a capacity” Elsewhere from Business Day editorial: "Mr. Ramaphosa's re-entry into party politics represents a victory for those dealing and negotiating in the real world, rather than in the world of ideological illusion." All noble but let us be more specific: Government should be focused on is revving up the engine that fuels most of the South African economy: small business. And right now, small business desperately needs a jump-start. And for this purpose ...

Happiness is... seeing somebody doing something right in SA (for a change). Thank you to South Africa's Sunday Times. It has taken the trouble to dig deep and find out the truth behind President Jacob Zuma's miraculous escape from prosecution shortly after Zuma was elected president of the ANC. Despite a last minute bid by the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) to halt the distribution of the Sunday Times Newspaper, which has a lead story delving on the dropped corruption charges against Zuma, the story is now about to hit the streets. It reveals how South Africa's top prosecutors were overwhelmingly in favour of pressing ahead with the corruption case against Zuma and had dismissed the so-called "spy tapes" as irrelevant just days before the charges were sensationally dropped in April 2009. The report also puts the spotlight on how Zuma's secret representations to the NPA, lobbying it to scrap his corruption charges, are littered with threats to expose the NPA's political agenda, embarrass politicians ...
Reading the Sunday Times Newspaper and other media channels today I have come against many editorials & articles decrying the blatant acts performed by Jacob Zuma & the ANC. 1. The demolition of houses in Lenasia. 2. The Marikana saga which they are trying to hide with the McFallum Commission to buy time until the Mangaung elective conference is concluded. 3. The downgrading of South Africa's economy by Standards & Poors which shows that the President & the Finance Minister are under performing. 4. The Nkandla house of Jacob Zuma, which has turned out to be a house built from the blood & sweat of poor South Africans. 5. Blade Nzimande's assertion about introducing 'Insult laws' to protect the President from being criticised, which is more Zimbabwean than South African. Blade & his friends are simply introducing ethnocentrism disguised as 100% Zuma. 6. The bulldozing of the Secrecy Bill & many more acts reminiscent of the Apartheid era. Much blame is apportioned to the ANC. Why blame the ANC? The ANC will ...

In an article in the Sunday Times today, Ronnie Kasrils, ex-Minister and Chief of MK "Intelligence" wrote of the great Cuban/FAPLA victory of Cuito. I sent my reply- Ronnie the Re-Writer Ronnie Kasrils revision of history may get full marx at a Limpopo junior school, but it wont pass muster at a more educated establishment. His tall tales about Cuito and the fighting prowess of his hero’s the Cubans and their MPLA employers don’t bear scrutiny. This ground has been gone over many times, so I think perhaps a look at the scoreboard is all that is needed to see his outlandish claims as the balderdash they so patently are. When establishing who the victors are in any battle, one needs to examine the aims of the parties involved, the casualties and the consequence for the military leaders after the battle. Firstly, the broader aim of the Cubans and MPLA/FAPLA and their comrades in SWAPO and the ANC was to eventually seize power in Namibia and South Africa and install a One Party, Communist Dictatorship in ...

How scary yet so true is this speech: Why I'm fleeing South Africa by Anne Paton (widow of Alan Paton) London Sunday Times I am leaving South Africa. I have lived here for 35 years, and I shall leave with anguish. My home and my friends are here, but I am terrified. I know I shall be in trouble for saying so, because I am the widow of Alan Paton. Fifty years ago he wrote Cry, The Beloved Country. He was an unknown schoolmaster and it was his first book, but it became a bestseller overnight. It was eventually translated into more than 20 languages and became a set book in schools all over the world. It has sold more than 15 million copies and still sells 100,000 copies a year. As a result of the startling success of this book, my husband became famous for his impassioned speeches and writings, which brought to the notice of the world the suffering of the black man under Apartheid. He campaigned for Nelson Mandela's release from prison and he worked all his life for black majority rule. He was incredibly ** ...
Sunday Times full the very rich and the big salary earners. They get the whole section of the Business Times in much the same way the fashion an social pages receive space. The latter purporting a glittering life style to covet and the other a subtle attempt to glorify wealth and an objective for living. Should I be a kill joy? And committee the cardinal sin of covetousness. Rather I dwell on the message of the Chief Rabbi of South Africa who reminds us that both wealth and poverty are tests. I would suggest test so graphically portrayed in the life of Job. But of the people paraded in this wealth, how many of them acknowledge their origins as having been small. Dr. Anton Rupert publicly and privately lived this knowledge. He knew he began as a chemist and that is why his book on SMME produced in the 70’s is still the most telling and encouraging for SMME proprietors. Yet the impression on gets from the new rich is a that they are so zonked with their own wealth that they have forgotten their small begi ...
Johannesburg - Former president Thabo Mbeki has accused the African Union (AU) of letting down the continent, because of petty disagreements between heads of state, the Sunday Times reported. Mbeki criticised African leaders, including President Jacob Zuma, in an article to be published in The Thinker magazine, according to the newspaper. Mbeki's criticisms included South Africa, Gabon, and Nigeria agreeing to military action against Libya, contrary to an AU decision; the failure to acknowledge the AU's anniversary at its Addis Ababa summit in July; and Africa falling off the world economic development agenda. The former president was also critical of the summit's lopsided focus on the contest for the AU commission chair, and said African leaders had not assessed the AU's impact on the continent since its establishment. The focus on this leadership contest was reflective of the malaise poisoning the African body politic, Mbeki said.

Enabling Environment: Do not put new wine into old wine bags: the new wine will cause the bags to crack and the new wine will be wasted. But put new wine into new wine jars. Reading the Sunday Times in the post Marikana tragedy also called the Lonmin Massacre, writers from Cyril Ramaphosa, Chris Barron’s obituary of Waddell, Ronnie Kasrils and the CEO of BUSA, Nomaxabiso Mokokweni, I am left with feelings of hopelessness and pain and a question where do we begin again. So I “googled” that cliché, which is so often on the lips of politicians and government in South Africa, “Enabling environment”. I was learnt again how this phrase can be applied from home, to school, to factory to country. So the first principle is that we all have a role to play. But the primus inter pari role – first among equals must surely be the state and the state organs. The fact that this is not so is clearly enunciated in the diagnostic report of the NPC and the lack of this element of creating the enabling environmen ...

Malema condemns Zuma's absence at Youth Day rally 20 Jun 2012 08:12 - Sapa Expelled ANCYL leader Julius Malema claims President Jacob Zuma undermined the youth by attending a G20 summit instead of joining a Youth Day rally. Expelled ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema. (M&G) “President Zuma undermines the youth of South Africa,” Malema said in North West province on Tuesday, according to an SABC report. “How can he leave June 16 [Youth Day]?,” asked Malema. Zuma’s spokeperson, Mac Maharaj, said the president’s schedule had to be adjusted for him to travel to Mexico. Maharaj denied reports that Zuma wanted to avoid being heckled at the Youth Day rally. The Sunday Times reported that Zuma “dodged” the event because he expected to be booed and ridiculed by Malema supporters. Malema also criticised the ANC’s march to the Goodman Gallery in Johannesburg to protest against The Spear, a painting depicting Zuma with exposed genitals. “They want to march for a spear but none of them has ever ...
Morning Sons & Daughters of the Soil. Zim exiles: We'll take Hawks to The Hague Zimabawean activists have threatened to refer several members of the Hawks to the International Criminal Court in The Hague for crimes against humanity if they are not brought to justice in South Africa. The threat from the Johannesburg-based Zimbabwe Exile Forum was made a day after Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa told parliament that an investigation into several Hawks officers was nearing completion. The Sunday Times published damning allegations in October that South African officials were cooperating with the Zimbabwean authorities in abducting Zimbabweans in South Africa, including former Movement for Democratic Change organiser Gift Nhadzi and his wife, who were tortured after he was repatriated. Also said to have been sent back to Zimbabwe against his will was Witness Ndeya, who is alleged to have killed Zimbabwean police officers. He was returned to Zimbabwe along with two other citizens and murdered. Mthethwa's announ ...
The Ivy League is not some kind of botanical convention. Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan should answer allegations in yesterday's Sunday Times that the state budget is being used to send Mr Mo Shaik to Harvard Business School (HBS) to "prepare him" for the post of the Development Bank of South Africa's (DBSA) International Division head. Exactly how much financial intelligence can an individual acquire as a State Security Agency head and would this be sufficient for handling a leadership position in a bank of the DBSA's magnitude? An executive leadership-training course at an Ivy League institution is most valuable, however, for someone who lacks a background in financial services, it just isn't enough for them to head the DBSA's international division. In as much as the quality of education from Harvard is superior, it doesn't come cheaply at all. Unless a candiate is headhunted or ordered by one of the bigger banks that deal directly with the Federal Reserve, this transaction doesn't exhibit any frugali ...
