South Africa has to be a better option for Trump than Greenland is, writes Howard Feldman.
Afrikaans Sunday newspaper Rapport has apologised for publishing accusations of sexual assault made against National Party ministers in the controversial book, 'The Lost Boys of Bird Island' by former policeman Mark Minnie and ex-journalist Chris Steyn.
Chris Steyn is deceitful when she accuses me of sloppy journalism and slammed me for factual inaccuracies in the review.
Why did Minnie wait 30 years before publishing his allegations? As a result, there will be no justice for the boys because the alleged paedophiles – with exception of the elderly Barend du Plessis – are dead, asks Jacques Pauw.
The war of words between writers Jacques Pauw and Chris Steyn has continued with Pauw hitting back at Steyn, who accused him of 'sloppy' journalism and of getting his facts wrong in his review of The Lost Boys of Bird Island.
I stand by the book on the basis of having personally spoken to dozens of people prior to – and following – its publication. Since the book hit the shelves I have received leads and emails daily from people with personal knowledge of the events described.
