Hot & Not
US Congressman John Lewis. The civil rights activist and Democratic Party member this week led a sit-in on the House floor to protest the power of the US’s gun lobby. In the wake of the tragic shootings at an Orlando nightclub this month, Lewis led the protest this week to push for more stringent gun control regulations in the US. Intelligence Minister David Mahlobo. We are not arguing for hyperspying, but basic intelligence-gathering should have alerted government to the volatile conditions in Tshwane’s townships. The role of intelligence is not to clear roadblocks or to take to the blackboards in Vuwani, but to try to avert crises before they happen.
