Quotes

...Africa's current "historic opportunity" was not the celebration of two decades of democracy, but rather how Zuma decided the fate of the country. "It's in your moments of decision or indecision that our destiny is shaped."
Makgoba said that he wanted to believe Zuma "when he said that he didn't rob our nation's treasury. But if he didn't, did he hold the stepladder? If he did, sadly he's as guilty as the person who climbed through your window."

"Furthermore on the R34 (Newcastle) in Kwazulu-Natal, a truck driver lost control of his vehicle and it overturned resulting in 17 injuries" Mosena said
