Lunch with renowned local chef David Higgs

David Higgs, South Africa’s most genial version of celebrity chef has not watched Squid Games, the bloodthirsty Korean series at the top of the global Netflix popularity contest when he proposes that we meet for lunch at Banchan a Korean restaurant in Morningside. “I don’t usually eat out he says , my house is my safe space, I just love being at home with my dog.” But here we are here on a Monday – his only “free” day in the week on the recommendation of his friends and I am rather glad for it, given that we are living through a Korean moment and the traditional food being presented in a steady stream of fiery but subtle freshness by Jamie Jeong the general manager is outrageously delicious.

FULL ADDRESS | I’m being politically persecuted, Jacob Zuma tells prayer meeting

Former president Jacob Zuma says he remains a prisoner under very strict parole conditions and it feels like what house arrest and banning orders must have felt like during colonial and apartheid times.
The 79-year-old, who is on medical parole from a 15-month sentence for contempt of court, addressed supporters who gathered in Durban for his welcome home prayer via video.
He said something had gone “terribly wrong” in this country, as the “state has imprisoned me for contempt of court without trial”.

All you need to know about 'killer cop' Nomia Rosemary Ndlovu's trial

The state has highlighted how murder accused Nomia Rosemary Ndlovu’s modus operandi was similar in several of the cases where she lost loved ones under brutal circumstances.
Delivering closing arguments in the Gauteng High Court, prosecutor Riana Williams said the pattern observed was that the Thembisa-based former policewoman was seemingly the last person to see her relatives alive, or she was the first one to notice them missing and report it before them being found dead.
Reporting from the courthouse, reporter Naledi Shange updates us on all we need to know about the case, ahead of next week's sentencing. 

'He is not fit enough to be out in public': Uncertainty over whether Jacob Zuma will attend 'welcome prayer'

As scores of former president Jacob Zuma supporters were expected to descend to People’s Park at the iconic Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban on Thursday, it remains to be seen whether the man of the hour will himself be present.
Some family members who spoke to TimesLIVE on Wednesday said there was confusion over the planned “welcome prayer”, as the former head of state was expecting a visit from religious leaders at his homestead in Nkandla, in the heart of KwaZulu-Natal, on the same day.
During a press briefing last week, Jacob G Zuma Foundation spokesperson Mzwanele Manyi said he could not confirm if Zuma would be at the event.

One beaten into a coma; another doused in acid; a third slipping from a second storey flat window as she tried to escape her attacker.

These Gauteng women are tallied among the increase in violent attacks against women – and police are seemingly not always prepared to help.

SA's first marine sciences matric class faces their final exam

Ashleigh Mingo has taken to heart the lines of a famous poem by English poet, John Masefield, who wrote, “I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky”.
The 17-year-old pupil from Wynberg Girls’ High in the Western Cape and 11 of her peers from the province will become the first group of matrics in Africa to write a Grade 12 exam in marine sciences.
What makes this slice of history even more remarkable is that the subject was not taught during normal class time but in the afternoons for two days a week.

A house of horror becomes a house of hope

It was dubbed the House of Horrors – 227 Malherbe Street in Pretoria where paedophile and serial killer Gert van Rooyen and his accomplice Joey Haarhoff lived.
Van Rooyen and his accomplice, Joey Haarhof, were linked to the disappearance of six girls between 1988 and 1989.
Capital Park Residents and Ratepayers Association chairperson, Mike Burt, said as a community they would like to take possession of the property and through sponsors and donors develop it as a place of safety.
Wayne Helfrich, a resident and councillor, who has been campaigning through Hicklin to secure the property for the ratepayers' association, said the plan was to create an emergency place of safety and a community centre to educate people on how to prevent kidnappings, sexual harassment and assaults.
