Bloemfontein - With the election just weeks away IEC electoral staff has threatened to strike unless the commission's chairperson Pansy Tlakula wasn't removed before 7 May. According to the IEC the staff cannot strike as their services were declared essential services by Parliament.

Nkandla was all over the news again after National Assembly speaker Max Sisulu decided to set up a multi-party parliamentary committee to consider Public Protector Thuli Madonsela's report about costly security upgrades to President Jacob Zuma's private home. It is reported that the investigation will likely be finished before or on 6 May. The DA's parliamentary leader Lindiwe Mazibuko welcomed the investigation. The GCIS released a statement earlier stating that the security cluster of ministries asked the Public Protector for "clarity" on certain aspects of her Nkandla report.

Comedian and satirist Pieter Dirk Uys urged South African voters to be selfish come 7 May.

"I wanted to be a Dutch Reformed Church dominee, an NG Kerk dominee, because you got a car and went straight to heaven. I was wrong, you had to be a member of the ANC to get a free car and go straight to heaven," he joked.

The DA today wrote an open-letter to all South Africans, and also launched a TV ad was released earlier today by Mmusi Maimane in Bekkersdal.
