Making headlines:

Mixed reactions to Nel joining forces with AfriForum


New DA Western Cape leader to be elected next month

And, Masutha calls for Parliament to 'assert its constitutional powers' on ICC



The move by AfriForum to establish a private prosecuting unit to be led by Advocate Gerrie Nel has been met with mixed reactions from members of the public and legal experts.

Nel resigned on Monday, giving the National Prosecuting Authority 24 hours' notice – a move seen as career suicide by some.


The DA will elect an acting Western Cape leader on February 25 following the surprise resignation of Patricia de Lille.

DA provincial chairperson Anton Bredell confirmed yesterday that deputy provincial leader Bonginkosi Madikizela will stand in as leader from February 1 until the party's next provincial council in Worcester on February 25.

De Lille announced her shock resignation on Monday after almost two years in the post.


The process to officially implement the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court Act Repeal Bill has gotten underway in Parliament.

The bill was introduced to the justice committee yesterday, with Justice Minister Michael Masutha appealing for Parliament to "assert its rights".

Masutha asked that MPs legitimise an executive decision made by the government to withdraw its membership from the ICC.

Also making headlines:

ANC motion of no confidence in Trollip failed to materialise.

And, Former SABC COO Hlaudi Motsoeneng said South Africans love him, no matter what.
