“I don’t feel any pres­sure, but I want to ex­plore and en­joy my­self. I want to learn and be­come the best I can be,” Pendo Maseto (13) told Sowetan this week. While his peers were on their school break, he was at the Na­tional Arts Fes­ti­val in Gra­ham­stown, wow­ing fans with his prow­ess on the vi­o­lin. Pendo proves that not all teens’ lives re­volve around TV and tech games.

State Se­cu­rity Min­is­ter David Mahlobo takes South Africans for fools. With­out flinch­ing, he told the me­dia that in­tel­li­gence knew a year in ad­vance that vi­o­lence would erupt in Vuwani, Lim­popo. More than 20 pub­lic schools were set alight dur­ing de­mar­ca­tion protests there, while Mahlobo and his men did noth­ing to pre­vent the crimes from hap­pen­ing.
