Bloemfontein -  Former president Nelson Mandela showed leadership to the nation when Chris Hani was assassinated 21 years ago, Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe says. He was speaking at the handover of a $1m (R10.4m) donation at Taung Agricultural College in the North West.

There seems to be a lot of "noise" about NUM members appearing on the ANC's list for the National Assembly, the union's deputy president Piet Matosa said on Friday. Read here what else he said.

The ruling party and opposition parties are on fire as 7 May is closer every day. The DA says they want answers from Zuma, and the ANC today said that opposition parties lack experience to move the country forward.

The DA's new TV ad caused for quite some drama when the SABC banned the ad. The SABC later released a statement saying the DA can submit an amended ad. According to the SABC the ad can incite violence. In the ad visuals of police shooting at residents are shown.

"It is our view that the reference in your television advertisement to police killing our people is cause for incitement against the police services," a spokesperson said.
