#SAVotes: Know your parties

A total of 152 parties are registered for the 7 May poll. We bring you a brief guide to the parties – the established, the newcomers, and the outliers.  

Moegoe of the week: Roger Dixon

IN the dock, what is the difference between a rock and a sock? We're not sure, but then we're not sure defence witness Roger Dixon knows either.  

Spoil vote, spoil SA

THE "Vote No" campaign undermines our constitutional democracy.  

Black lives still cheap

Why is the Oscar Pistorius trial wasting our tax money? Is it because a white woman was killed? So many black people were killed in Marikana for a living wage.  

SA still needs Buthelezi

WHEN the IFP won last week's by-election in KwaMashu, a clear message was sent that Inkatha does exist and it is here to stay.  

DA’s liberalism - same as apartheid hateful discrimination

Discrimination reinvents itself. At times bluntly and other times with subliminal convenience.  

Animal farm: When the elephant and pig become political

Who funds the political critics and opposition parties?

RECENTLY the African National Congress expressed concern when it was revealed that the Democratic Alliance had gone out of its way to offer Agang founding leader Mamphela Ramphele a unique position of being its presidential candidate following a secret funder’s bidding. It is common knowledge that the DA's efforts were fruitless.  

New YFM line up very masculine

Is it me or is there a shortage of women on the YFM line up?  

The great radio reshuffle

APRIL marks the radio shuffle season when some our favourite DJ have migrated to new stations.
