By Carl Niehaus Forty-one years ago on the fateful day of the 12th of September 1977, one of the greatest sons of our South African soil, Bantu Stephen Biko, passed away because of the vicious torture that he was subjected to by the security police of the apartheid regime. Forty-one years ago on the fateful day of the 12th of...
The communications expert Julia Wood defines communication as “a systemic process in which individuals interact with and through symbols to create and interpret meanings.”   Hearing Wood in this sense is to hear the underscoring of the science, art and skill of communications. Since Sunday Times have apprised us all of an apparent "secret" meeting held among ANC members, we are compelled...
We have been here before in another epoch when some stood accused of seeking to oust Mbeki  Sunday Times the Tiso Blackstar newspaper, broke this weekend with a story of an apparent ‘secret meeting’ that transpired between ANC people including a crossbreed of former and current leaders.

To its undying shame, Parliament’s Portfolio Committee on Justice and Correctional Services (“JCSP”) have been hoodwinked by the DA’s Steenhuisen into a farcical enquiry to impeach the Public Protector. Predictably, revenge and racist disparate treatment are the motivating factors for the DA - it was the only party in Parliament that vehemently opposed the appointment of our Public Protector.  When...
