Hot & Not

A young woman from Qumbu in Lady Frere, East­ern Cape, nearly ended her life this week af­ter her fam­ily vil­i­fied her in­stead of ap­plaud­ing her for sav­ing her friend’s life by re­port­ing a mon­ster in the fam­ily – a cousin who was part of a gang who raped her friend. While many would have turned a blind eye, her brav­ery is what our coun­try needs more of.

Eight years on, and with mil­lions of rands wasted, Pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma is still play­ing the le­gal merry-gor­ound with tax­pay­ers’ money to avoid go­ing to court. His lawyers made ma­jor con­ces­sions, but still hope to be al­lowed to make fresh rep­re­sen­ta­tions. We hope that the court will call their bluff and put a stop to these lu­di­crous games.
