“Death Toil”, ‘Fifty-seven murdered in South Africa everyday’ Police Minister Bheki Cele raise alarm


South Africa recorded 20,336 murders in the last year, an increase of 1,320 murders compared to the same period the year before, Police Minister Bheki Cele has said.

“This means 57 murders a day. It borders on a war zone,” the visibly angry minister said.

Police records show that murder rates have increased in the past six consecutive years.

Francois Beukman, who heads the police oversight committee in parliament, described the numbers as “alarming and totally unacceptable”.

Admitting that the police haven’t done as well as they should have, Mr Cele said the security officers had “dropped the ball.”

“South Africans must not take it as a norm that they can be hijacked, robbed and killed every day. We have to pick up the ball and change the situation for the better.”

He promised to work hard to change the situation: “Our bottom line is that this situation must reverse,” he said.

The motives and circumstances behind killings range from gangsterism to vigilantism.

Ethiopian troops to start withdrawing from Eritrea border


Ethiopia’s Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has said his country’s troops will start withdrawing from border areas with Eritrea from today.

Mr Abiy made the announcement amid the reopening of Burre and Zalambessa border crossings by the leaders of the two countries, which have been in a state of war over the last 20 years due to a border dispute.

Despite the recent rapprochement with Eritrea, Ethiopia had remained in violation of a resolution reached by a boundary commission in 2000 which ordered it to withdraw its troops.

Last week, soldiers from both sides took part in an exercise to clear mines and road blocks that had hindered trade and movement of people between the two countries.

But both countries signed up to a new peace deal in July – dramatically changing the relationship between Eritrea and Ethiopia which have had no diplomatic or trade relations since the late 1990s.

MP takes HIV test after Twitter ‘rumours’


An MP in Zimbabwe has taken a public HIV test to counter accusations made on social media that he had the virus.

Temba Mliswa, an independent legislator, tweeted a photo of a medical slip showing his negative result:

He said in a statement:

“ I do not usually respond to social media slurs. It has been been peddled that I have been in the habit of consorting with underage girls. I categorically deny such frivolous claims with the contempt they deserve”.

Mr Mliswa urged Zimbabweans to get tested and not to stigmatise those who have HIV.

My love life story: (Title): Is too late to Love me now


I really want to ask this,

Is it bad to be in a (relationship)? Or is it bad to have one (lover) in life?.

If your answer is (NO) then why is my own love life different?.

Dose it mean that am not suppose to love? Or i don’t need love life in my life?

Maybe i should start double dating!?..

Because each young lady i date (cheat) on me, and once i feel cheated and complain they leave me because of no reason.

And now the young lady i so much loved back in the days who breaks up with me and left me (Beyond Repair) then i was helpless.

Now she came back this time and told me that she really want and need me badly. So should i sing this song for her?…

Is too late, say you love me, and is too late, once my love for you is so great, is too late to love me now.

Don’t you know how hard i try to hold on just for you, loving you from memory day by day.

Then someone came and took my life turn my world around she taking all your loving through away.

What GreenLink consume every day impacts the world

We know very little about the products that we consume everyday and their impact on the world. Opaque and complex supply chains have long term negative impacts on the environment and the wellbeing of people. As a consumer, making informed purchasing decision is difficult and intricate.
