Patrick Karegeya, a former Rwandan spy Chief and top aide to President Paul Kagame, was strangled on New Year's Eve in 2013 after being invited to a glitzy five-star hotel in Johannesburg. His family and opposition colleagues have always blamed the murder on Rwandan intelligence acting on orders from Kagame – a claim he has vehemently denied. Up until now, prosecutors in South Africa have treated Karegeya's murder with caution, not least because of the possible diplomatic fallout it threatens with Rwanda. One police officer in charge of the investigation told the court on Thursday that the killers were "well-known." "Our investigations reveal that the identified suspects immediately fled South Africa after committing the crime," lieutenant-colonel Kwena Motlhamme told AFP.

A Zimbabwean man who rose to viral internet fame for his faked religious resurrection in South Africa in February has died for a ‘second time’ – apparently, this time for real.

In a few months time, as winter begins to bite in the southern hemisphere, the African National Congress will face its biggest challenge since it took power in South Africa’s first free elections a quarter of a century ago. The 25-year milestone will be loudly celebrated. There will be rallies and speeches. The liberation songs that motivated ANC activists during the long, dark decades of its struggle to free South Africa from the racist, repressive apartheid regime will ring out. The memory of Nelson Mandela, Nobel prize laureate, freedom fighter and the country’s secular saint, will be invoked. But none of this will disguise the harsh reality that 2019 could be the year that will be seen by historians as the beginning of the end for the ANC. “Twenty-five years is the time when the clock really starts ticking for liberation movements. The ANC is on the defensive now. It is just trying to stop the losses,” said Ralph Mathekga, a South African commentator and … [Read more...] about Toxic legacy taints ANC as it nears 25-year rule in South Africa
