Fransman heads to court

Marius Fransman approached the Western Cape High Court on Monday to intervene in his struggle to regain his position of ANC Western Cape leader.

Fransman's position has been at the centre of much confusion after the African National Congress’ head of elections, Nomvula Mokonyane, said on Thursday that he was back in his job as the party’s provincial leader.

Fransman has been the subject of disciplinary proceedings after he was accused of sexually harassing 21-year-old Louisa Wynand while they were travelling to the party's January 8 celebrations in Rustenburg.

ANC secretary general Gwede Mantashe said on Monday, however, that Fransman had not been reinstated, saying Mokonyane had been under pressure when she made the announcement.

I am the Rainbow Nation - maverick ANC mayor Truman Prince

Ask Truman Prince about his and the ANC's chances in Beaufort West for the August 3 municipal elections, he says he admires the EFF for its radicalism "because I am a radical". He admires how its MPs research and articulate arguments presented in Parliament.

He criticises the DA's election candidate process, saying they were chosen by "people in a small room", not by the branches like the ANC.

"I cannot be racist against white, I cannot be racist against black, because they are all family members of mine. So there is no way that Truman Prince can be racist."

Idols SA episode 2: The cake, wash me and bless my sweating

The next stop on the Idols season 12 audition round was the capital city, Pretoria. In all honesty we were never ready for what PTA had in store for us: there was cake, explicit lyrics, Wooden Mic gold, original ''hits" and the return of bad Randall. By the end of a long day, the judges issued 21 Golden Tickets.
