The trial of Oscar Pistorius has attracted media attention, not only in South Africa, but in many First World countries.

Any doubt that our present leader is an inept, bungling parody of a president will have been dispelled by his recent comments on the spending of around R240m of taxpayer money on Nkandla.

The Ukrainian crisis has stirred old rivalries in Europe and fears of a return to the “cold war” days of subterfuge, spies and all-things secret.

The role of the President is to act as a figure head for government in all its forms and to project an image that acts as a bench mark.

President Robert Mugabe is referred to in many ways, mostly extremely uncomplimentary and, to be fair, he has worked hard at earning the scorn and verbal abuse.

Mugabe began his grab what you can policies 20 years after Independence. Should we be worried?

Eskom, the giant parastatal with an infrastructural price tag of R340m and a programme to expand electricity supply throws in the towel because “the coal is wet”.

These are worrying times for Europe as the political crisis in Ukraine becomes malignant and the sounds of Russian sabre rattling turn into the beating of the war drum engulfing Crimea.

President Jacob Zuma has presented what has been described as an upbeat State of the Nation Address and spent some time highlighting the achievements after 20 years of independence.

While the economic woes of South Africa continue to frustrate, the troubles to the north have reached a critical stage in its most recent continuing economic downward spiral.

Following months of unrest on the mines last year causing huge disruption to production there is still no hint of a plan to ease the troubles in the sector.
