The Sunday Independent - - DISPATCHES -

WHEN the ANC was un­banned in 1990 – to­gether with other po­lit­i­cal or­gan­i­sa­tions, the prov­ince was al­ready on fire – for­mer KwaZulu-Na­tal Premier and party chair­man Senzo Mchunu tes­ti­fy­ing be­fore the Mo­er­ane Com­mis­sion on Wed­nes­day in Dur­ban.

THE gov­ern­ment has sus­pended pub­li­ca­tion and circulation of the weekly MwanaHal­isi news­pa­per for 24 months due to re­peated un­eth­i­cal re­port­ing, pub­lish­ing fab­ri­cated and in­cit­ing ar­ti­cles and en­dan­ger­ing na­tional se­cu­rity, the state-run Tan­za­nia In­for­ma­tion Ser­vices said. This is in line with Pres­i­dent John Magu­fuli’s pledge in Jan­uary that the days of news­pa­pers his gov­ern­ment viewed as un­eth­i­cal “were num­bered”.

AF­TER much re­flec­tion I have de­cided to with­draw the charge against Shaka Sisulu. It was a mis­un­der­stand­ing and it is in the best interest of my mar­riage that we put this mat­ter be­hind us. It was never Shaka’s in­ten­tion to cause me any phys­i­cal harm. – Ler­ato Sedi in a state­ment sent through Sisulu’s lawyer, Kag­isho Se­tati.

WE must not sleep­walk our way into war – UN sec­re­tary-gen­eral An­to­nio Guter­res urg­ing states­man­ship just be­fore US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump gave his de­but speech at the UN, where he mocked North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un.
