No Fear No Favour No ISIS Terrorists please......

JOHANNESBURG 9th APRIL 2015  10:30

A Cape Town girl (15) was taken off a flight on Sunday after it was discovered she’d been recruited by Isis.

JOHANNESBURG – As concerns grow about the Islamic State (Isis)targeting young, vulnerable South Africans, community members in Mayfair have called on authorities to find Isis sympathisers in the area. 

They say they recently spotted a car driving around the community bearing the group’s flag.

On Sunday, a 15-year-old Cape Town girl was taken off a flight bound for Johannesburg after it was suspected that she was meeting an Isis recruiter. 

The teenager was tracked all the way to her first-class seat after she’d left her family home with her passport and cash.

The girl apparently went missing on Sunday morning and airportauthorities were alerted.

Somali Community Board chairperson Amir Sheik says this should not be treated as an isolated incident. 

“The scenario of the young lady in Cape Town who was intercepted and what happened in Kenya last week is something that leaves the community saying if there are certain people amid us, we’re not safe.”

Meanwhile, the Muslim Judicial Council (MJC) says educating youths around the dangers of radicalism and militant groups has become a top priority.

The council held a workshop this week to raise awareness around the issue. 

The MJC’s Nabewiyah Mallick says, “We can’t be naïve about the fact that Isis is recruiting youngsters. The MJC felt that we have a responsibility to guide the community and share our concerns and information on Isis.”

“We in Zimbabwe had forgotten about Cecil Rhodes until South Africa said it has his statue in Cape Town, where he was the minister of the Cape and mischievously wanted to also take control of Zimbabwe,” said Mugabe. ”We have his corpse, you can keep his statue,” he added, causing South African President Jacob Zuma and the twenty cabinet ministers from both governments to break in laughter.
Mugabe arrived in South Africa on Tuesday on an official visit, accompanied by ten of his cabinet ministers and his wife Grace. Rhodes’ statue, situated within the campus of the University of Cape Town, has been the subject of national dialogue after students staged protests, demanding that it be removed.
This was followed by protests and the defacing of other statues of colonialists and apartheid-era figures across the country. Rhodes is buried at the “View of the World” hill in the Matopo district in Zimbabwe, reportedly in keeping with his final will. Mugabe said Zimbabwe was looking after Rhodes.
“I don’t know what you want us to do with him…do you think we should dig him up? …but perhaps his spirit may rise again. We have decided to keep him down there,” he said.
He is accompanied by his wife, Grace, and government officials.

Mugabe, who is on a state visit at the invitation of President Jacob Zuma, was welcomed by South African Minister of International Relations and Cooperation Maite Nkoana-Mashabane after his plane touched down at Waterkloof Air Force Base in Pretoria.



May hell be too hot for YOU!

Thuli Madonsela to receive another award

No fear No Favour No Traitors...........

6 April 2015 15:00

After being named one of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World in 2014, Public Protector Thuli Madonsela is to receive another award – Rhodes University will be conferring an honorary doctorate on her on Friday. Heather Dugmore profiles one of SA’s most outstanding citizens.
It’s 5pm at the Pretoria headquarters of Public Protector Thuli Madonsela. This is home time for most people, but not for her. There is no nine to five when your work is about ensuring that corruption and wrongdoing at all levels of government are exposed.
Her office, like the advocate herself, has a serene atmosphere that belies the rigorous work that takes place when members of her team, mostly advocates, regularly meet and work into the small hours.
Madonsela, who will be receiving an honorary doctorate from Rhodes University on Friday, doesn’t make a big deal of her long hours or achievements. She’s just doing her job.
“For as long as I am in this job, my team and I will investigate each case put before us and use the Constitution and law to establish the truth. And when those in government have done wrong, my office is compelled to address this,” she says.
Madonsela says she sometimes feels sorry for the perpetrators “because when something is wrong and everyone can see it, your inability to acknowledge your wrongdoing is perpetuating your own sad life”.
Regrettably, she adds, the tragedy of government wrongdoing at all levels is not restricted to the individual; it has exponential consequences for the rest of the country.
“In this life, whether you are on the big stage or small stage, there is no choice but to take responsibility for your actions. When those in government have committed wrongs, if they admit to them and start taking responsibility for their actions, it somehow massages the hurt and the country can start to move forward. Fortunately, South Africans are forgiving people. But when those in government refuse to take responsibility, then there’s no making amends, because they perpetuate the sense that they will do it again.”
Although the Nkandla matter has become a symbol of the gaping lack of responsibility among those in the country’s highest echelons, it is but one of the more than 37 000 cases the Office of the Public Protector deals with each year – most of which are resolved within three months.
Then there are the larger, lingering cases – from the nondelivery of school textbooks to government’s commitment to nuclear power deals that haven’t followed the proper consultation processes and the e-toll saga.
“It sounds like a cliché, but at the heart of good governance is the need for open, honest communication,” she says.
“People need the space and freedom to be able to communicate what they think, feel and need. If you don’t give them this, they stop communicating or tell you what they think you want to hear – because they are afraid of the consequences of being open and honest.
“Irrespective of whether you are the head of a country or company, a parent or a friend, the need for open, honest communication is the same.”
To keep some perspective on life, Madonsela tries to set aside time to walk, meditate in her garden, go to church and listen to classical music.
Holidays are few and far between, but Durban, Cape Town and Victoria Falls are three of her destinations of choice – and she would like to visit Israel.
“I’m fascinated by ancient civilisations and I often wonder how they would view us and what we have done to this earth,” she says.
“I’m concerned for the earth. We rush ahead with what we think is ‘development’, often without sufficient environmental impact studies, and then land up with all sorts of severe environmental problems, including global warming.”
Having said this, Madonsela is not pessimistic about the planet. “In the past few years we have seen the rise of many more conscious beings who are looking at what is good for our planet.”
She adds that even our country’s critical problems, notably Eskom, might result in positive outcomes – such as upscaled renewable energy investment as the fastest, most sustainable solution to power generation.
She is driven “to do what I think I need to do in the time I have here” by the “realisation of the impermanence of life”.
That Madonsela is also on borrowed time in her office worries many South Africans, as she completes her term in October next year.
What will happen when she goes? Will the state ensure that the next Public Protector is a yes man?
“I’m fairly confident that won’t happen, and I hope the state will appoint someone who can build on the work I have started.
“However, irrespective of this, institutionally what I have tried to do is build a strong, capable team that is committed to our democracy. I believe my team will continue to hold the next Public Protector accountable at every turn, as they do me.”
