‘My son died for the criminal justice system which failed him when he’s no more’ — slain cop’s mother

The family of a slain police officer killed while on duty in Pretoria has expressed shock that his killer’s conviction and sentence have been overturned by the Constitutional Court.

Const Kenneth Sithole was fatally stabbed in Sunnyside in Pretoria while taking part in a police operation that aimed to free the crime-ridden streets of the capital’s flatland of criminal activities in 2018.

Liqhayiya Tuta, a law student at the University of SA, stabbed Sithole and his colleague Lawrence Magalefa, believing they were criminals out to rob him. He convinced the highest court in the land to overturn his murder conviction and life sentence on Friday.

Sithole’s mother, Lyza Sithole, 59, who lives in Monsterlus in Limpopo, said she feels failed by the criminal and justice system which her son served with distinction.

Malema: Ramaphosa 'can go to hell' if he cannot be investigated

EFF leader Julius Malema does not believe the removal of the public protector on the basis that her rulings were overturned in court is rational.
“You cannot fire a public protector for losing [court] cases,.
“To even think that we must destroy [the] public protector for a questionable character like [President] Cyril [Ramaphosa]? We can’t do that even for Nelson Mandela,” Malema said

‘I hugged him’: How Cape Town nurse disarmed hospital gunman

A fearless nurse managed to calm a gunman inside a Cape Town hospital by hugging him and chatting until he agreed to be sedated.

“I walked towards him and hugged him,” said Sister Diane Seale from New Somerset Hospital where Jaun-Paul Carl Malgas allegedly shot dead two patients and a policeman on Saturday night

“As I entered the second floor, I noticed a body on the floor in the corridor, but my eye caught the patient with the gun in his hand. I walked straight to him and made eye contact.

“I escorted him into a cubicle. He told me to close the door. That also afforded our staff [the chance] to attend to the policeman who had been shot. I felt I could calm him down a bit.

“Though I noted two patients had been shot and were deceased, there were still two patients who were alive that I needed to save. I kept him seated, standing in front of him, so that these patients were kept out of harm’s way,” Seale told health department officials who shared her comments on Wednesday.

It's about much more than the flag, says Afriforum

Three years ago judge president Phineas Mojapelo found that the display of the apartheid flag was a form of hate speech after the court considered the matter brought by the Nelson Mandela Foundation and SA Human Rights Commission.
Today, the debate continues as Afriforum heads to the Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) in Bloemfontein, in an attempt to overturn the equality court ruling that declared the display of the flag a form of hate speech.
AfriForum campaign officer Ernst van Zyl said while the group and its members do not display the flag, it is taking the matter to court because it believes there is an important distinction between free speech and hate speech. The lobby group holds that allowing the banning of unpopular symbols such as the old SA flag, will open up precedent for other forms of free speech to be limited.
