Zuma Probably Won't Go, But This Is Not The End. We're Just Getting Started.

With the national protest that just took place – We thought this article is a great piece in addressing what’s currently happening. 

The media briefing by a Gwede Mantashe on Tuesday made it clear: the ANC national working committee had seen Zuma not only win against a party on the cusp of revolting against him, but wrangling apologies from those who had dared to publicly criticize him.

Hopes that the NWC meeting would signal the ANC's move to recall Zuma as ANC president, as they did with his predecessor, Thabo Mbeki, were buried. President Jacob Zuma's victory could not have been more total. He will not be removed as African National Congress (ANC) president or president of the country by Parliament.

One moment the country was on the edge of dizzy optimism that the ANC would find its senses and oust the leader that has dragged the once great movement so far down they're in danger of losing power entirely in the next election. The next, we were subjected to leaders who were apologizing and literally likening themselves to an abused spouse.



Vogue cover model, 21, ‘was murdered by extremists for not wearing Islamic clothing’, family say

A former Vogue cover model was found dead in a hostel dormitory for not wearing Islamic clothing, her family has claimed. 

Raudha Athif, who appeared on Vogue India’s Beauty in Diversity cover shoot in October, was reported to have been found hanged - an autopsy into the second-year student’s death ruled the tragedy as suicide.

However her brother has since spoken out insisted that the 21-year-old was murdered by extremists and her death was made to look like a suicide. Her dad also spoke out stating: ‘Maldivian medical student and my daughter Raudha Athif did not commit suicide. She was murdered at her hostel room. I have the facts.’

Coke Made A Drink Called Life That Is Now Dead 

We wonder how many more things Coke can launch? Coca-Cola launched Coke Life, in a green can but BuzzFeed News reported sales were flat and it has emerged that it will be pulled from the UK. 

Coke Life is made with a blend of sugar and natural sweeteners derived from a South American plant. Coke Life, which comes in a green can, was the first new product launched under the Coca-Cola brand since Coke Zero in 2006, and was launched with a big marketing push.


Verne Troyer has told concerned fans he’s ‘voluntarily’ checked into a rehabilitation centre to combat alcohol addiction

The 48-year-old Austin Powers star checked into a Californian hospital and has now revealed he’s planning to check into rehab to ‘continue to get the help’ he needs.

‘I’ve been hearing from some concerned fans, so I’d like to address a very personal situation,’ he wrote on Instagram on Thursday - as you know, I’ve battled alcohol addiction in the past and while it’s not always been an easy fight, I’m willing to continue my fight day by day.’

Verne continued: ‘I’ve been receiving treatment for the last week and I am voluntarily checking into a treatment centre later this week to continue to get the help that I need.

‘I want to thank everyone that’s reached out with their messages of support, it truly means the world to me - with your support - I got this.’

Looks like he won’t be singing just the two of us anytime soon.
