Making headlines:
Masina tells Zuma to leave the ANC intact
DA to block Zuma's attempt to delay 'state capture' court hearing
And, Mogoeng Mogoeng  says never give students impression they are crazy



Ekurhuleni mayor and ANC regional chairperson, Mzwandile Masina, yesterday challenged President Jacob Zuma to "leave the ANC intact".


Masina was addressing Zuma, who was part of the event in Wattville, on the East Rand. Minister of Water and Sanitation, Nomvula Mokonyane, and Local Government Minister, Des van Rooyen, as well as former Ekurhuleni mayor Mondli Gungubele were in attendance.

Masina asked that party members ensure the organisation stayed intact and that its leaders emulate Tambo's values. Developments in the party at present were starting to worry the ANC's younger members, he said.

Last week, the ANC's parliamentary chief whip Jackson Mthembu called for the ANC's national executive committee to step down.


The Democratic Alliance will oppose President Jacob Zuma's attempt to delay the release of the public protector's “state capture” report.

Zuma’s lawyers indicated yesterday that they would ask for a postponement of the court hearing, scheduled for next Tuesday. He said he needed time to respond to former ANC MP Vytjie Mentor’s late application to intervene.

Zuma applied to the court to interdict former public protector Thuli Madonsela’s report, claiming he was not given adequate time to respond to her questions.
Madonsela was due to release the report on Friday, October 14, the last day of her seven-year term.


Student protests for free quality higher education were an opportunity for South Africans to demonstrate their patriotism, Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng said yesterday.

He was paying tribute to former ANC president Oliver Reginald Tambo on what would have been the struggle icon's 99th birthday. Tambo died in 1993.

During his talk Mogoeng also spoke of the current protests for free quality higher education at the country's tertiary institutions.

Mogoeng said no one could claim to have a solution to the protests, but said this was an opportunity for South Africans to operate as a collective in seeking solutions to the issue. He added that he was weary of defining it as a crisis, but wanted to view it as a challenge instead.
