Oh dear. President Zuma’s done it again. His libido has steered him into new trouble in South Africa. This time he’s had a child out of wedlock. (Apparently three, going on four, wives just isn’t enough!) His initial statement to the South African public, after the affair and subsequent October birth of his daughter were […]

Waiting, waiting, waiting for…

Submitted by an anonymous emailer from Durban: Read Carefully and Weep The public bus service in Durban has closed down, leaving thousands of daily commuters with no way to get to work or home again.

So what’s the real deal with 2010’s World Cup Carbon Footprint?

By SAPeople 03-06-14 13:29

by Anton Cartwright, co-founder of PACE (Promoting Access to Carbon Equity) I read reports of 2010’s carbon footprint with mixed emotions.

Tot Siens to the Citi Golf

By SAPeople 03-06-14 13:29

Eish! No more Citi Golf. Volkswagen announced their decision last week to retire one of South Africa’s most iconic cars after 25 years of production. It’s been a favourite ‘first car’ for so many since its debut in 1984 (when the advertising tagline was ‘red, yellow, blue…not green!’). But the next generation won’t get the […]
