Harare – Former Zimbabwe presidential minister Didymus Mutasa has called on President Jacob Zuma to alert other southern African governments about the ruling Zanu-PF’s congress last week in which he said he and vice-president Joice Mujuru were sacked from their posts undemocratically. Former Zanu PF secretary for administration Didymus Mutasa “We refuse to be chucked out of Zanu-PF which some of us have been in for 57 years,” Mutasa said on Saturday from India, where his wife is having medical treatment. “We fought for ‘one man, one vote’ majority rule, which is not provided for in the current Zanu-PF constitution adopted at the 6th congress,” Mutasa said. “It gives all votes to the president alone and violates the supreme law of the country. It is therefore null and void, all that transpired at the 6th congress.” He added: “We call on Zanu-PF to work as it was before the 6th congress which was itself unlawful,” Mutasa said. He was referring to the fact that loyalists of President ...

Again, in his closing address during the 1997 State of the Nation Address, Mandela made the following remarks on leadership: Leadership means leadership. It implies sometimes moving ahead of one’s constituency and — not seldom — taking unpopular decisions in the interests of the country and all its people. 13 Moeletsi Mbeki, a brother to Thabo Mbeki, concurs with Mandela and opines: A leader is someone who identifies political and/or economic opportunities that can lead to the solution of overwhelming social problems or challenges facing his or her community and successfully persuades others to work with his or her to implement those solutions. 14 Mbeki’s definition of a leader underlines the centrality of deliberative rhetoric as he argues that while a leader should exercise some discretion, it is incumbent upon him or her to persuade his or her followers of the advantage(s) that will accrue to them if they choose to initiate a particular course of action for the future. A leader does not have to ...

Jacob Zuma won't be going anywhere soon. In fact, the ANC could have him as its leader for two years longer than his five-year term if a lobby group consisting of senior party leaders from five provinces gets its way – despite his apparent reluctance earlier this year to finish his term because of ill-health. This means those who are wishing Zuma away might have to exercise a little more patience. His term as ANC president is set to end in 2017 and his term as the country’s president expires two years later. Read: Spy tapes revelations could rock the Zuma establishment The pro-Zuma group, led by several loyalist ANC provincial chairpersons, including Free State Premier Ace Magashule, his counterpart in the North West, Supra Mahumapelo, and Mpumalanga's David Mabuza, is said to be planning to table a proposal to extend Zuma’s term by two years at the party's national general council (NGC) next year. The aim is to bring the ANC president’s term of office into sync with that of the head of state. Oth ...

Aaha! Zizi,Jama kaSjadu Thabo Mbeki; What a great leader he was! Born and raised in Mbewuleni, Cape Province, Union of South Africa, Mbeki is one of four children of (late) Epainette and Govan Mbeki. The economist Moeletsi Mbeki is one of his brothers. His father was a stalwart of the African National Congress (ANC) and the South African Communist Party. He is a native Xhosa speaker. His parents were both teachers and activists in a rural area of ANC strength, and Mbeki describes himself as "born into the struggle"; a portrait of Karl Marx sat on the family mantelpiece, and a portrait of Mohandas Gandhi was on the wall. Political style? He had that intellectual approach of his famous father, communist stalwart Govan Mbeki - repeatedly transmutes emotion into political principle. Mbeki has sometimes been characterised as remote and academic, an idealist than a pragmatist, something of a prophet in the wilderness who pushed for a political rather than military solution and drove his Cadre towards understand ...

Yesterday we asked if Skeem Sam can be a better replacement of Generations. 50% thought it was better than Generations, 45% thought it was not when only 5% thought they both are informative in their own way. Today we are asking a deeper question: Is Skeem Sam not receiving viewership because of the main medium of instruction [Sepedi] used? Mmameshi Mahlogonolo said "Well Skeem Saam story line is quite good.
