Graduate Zandile Ngubane’s Master of Arts in Ethics thesis is a critical ethical analysis of African traditional beliefs about people living with albinism. 
Ngubane argued that people living with albinism are socially excluded in some African traditional communities because they are not considered human beings. 
In her paper she says Albinism seems to be a two-edge sword: on the one hand, it is believed that people with albinism are born with special powers that can bring wealth, On the other hand, people living with albinism are believed to bring bad luck and that having relations with them will cause ill-fortune.
Her study highlights beliefs and perceptions, which view people with albinism as ghosts; that having sexual intercourse with a person living with albinism can cure HIV and AIDS, and that body parts of people living with albinism can make umuthi.

MAKING CENTS

Globally, alcohol consumption accounts for a substantial burden of disease, which translates into high social and economic costs. To address this burden, several policies have been implemented. 
Despite the existence of these policies evidence shows that alcohol misuse and alcohol-related harms have increased in South Africa over recent years. 
Research done on Alcohol spending  almost ten years ago shows that it was regressive between 1995 and 2011 because poorer households’ expenditure spent on alcohol beverage exceeds that for the richest households. 
However another index shows that spending on alcoholic beverages has become less regressive between the same time periods.
This study showed that no evidence that alcohol policy including taxation increased regressivity.

This action was taken by The university after protests and a subsequent march by students, staff and management on November 6 to the Pretoria West police station against gender-based violence.
The move was also prompted by the attack and rape of a first-year student at one of the university’s private off-campus residences.
The self-defence class is held under the theme “Time to fight back” and hosted every Saturday at the university’s sports complex at the Ga-Rankuwa campus.

Last year A male contraceptive pill passed its first safety test – but South Africans are unsure about whether they would ever use it, with some men fearing that it might permanently affect their sperm production.
Forty men took part in the US trial, with 30 getting the contraceptive pill daily for 28 days and the other 10 getting a placebo.
Those taking the pill did not have any significant side effects and it reduced their testosterone levels, important for sperm production.
Senior investigator Dr Christina Wang of the Los Angeles Biomed Research Institute says the results suggest that this pill, which combines two hormonal activities in one, will decrease sperm production while preserving libido.

Buy Black is a movement that inspires and influences black South Africans to circulate money within the black community by buying black products and services.
According to statistics, only 10% of the income in the black community is spent in the black community.
This has led to widespread poverty within most black communities because their money is spent outside of the communities they live in.
Money circulation is a major player in alleviating poverty and creating collective prosperity in many communities around the world.
Buy Black will host its first event from 7 to 14 December 2020 called “BUY BLACK WEEK”
South Africa has over 40 million black people who spend over 80% of their incomes outside the black community.
The purpose of BUY BLACK WEEK is to get just 10 million black South Africans to spend a minimum of R100.00 a day on black owned products and services for 7 days, totalling R700.00 per person.
The Buy black foundation believes This will equal a total circulation of R7 Billion within the black South African community in one week.
