Thando Mahlangu, a cultural activist who was asked to leave the Boulders Mall in Midrand, few weeks ago was back with supporters to the mall on Thursday 8th April to speak with the management to be compensated about the humiliation he experienced by the manager of the mall.
The activist that was wearing his Ndebele traditional attire, was told that was dressed inappropriately.
No agreement was reached during the meeting so the matter will now be escalated to the courts.

SOUTH AFRICA WON THE PINK ODI AT THE WANDERERS TO LEVEL THE THREE-MATCH SERIES 1-1 ON SUNDAY 4TH APRIL IN JOHANNESBURG.
Although it was the best match ever SA vs Pak Betway ODI series at Wanderers Stadium, the controversial run out by Quainton De Kock during the match has the spirit of cricket damaged and sparked a debate. South Africa won the Pink ODI at the Wanderers to level the three-match series 1-1, and the first 300 + total for SA ODI since July 2019.

We want to celebrate the beauty and power of wildlife with some of our favourite pictures.
The theme for 2021 is "Forests and Livelihoods: Sustaining People and the Planet". A forest is not just the exotic setting for an adventure novel or the enticing picture to use as a screensaver, it is a living and breathing entity that provides shelter, sustenance, comfort, nourishment to many communities around the globe.
Forest or river, mountain or valley, lake or desert - every habitat and ecosystem on Earth has value and purpose. By damaging even one little bit (and we have been doing much worse than that), the whole world suffers.
Join us in celebrating beautiful, wild Mother Nature and take a moment to reflect about how you can contribute to a healthier and happier planet with your daily choices.

Quinton de Kock wrapped up a 2-0 scoreline by winning the second match by 10 wickets inside three days at the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg. It is their first series win in the ICC World Test Championship, helping them to a total of 144 points in sixth place. The game has been played in an empty stadium due the restrictions of Covid-19.

If you were planning a nice beach outing during the festive season… you might have to change your plans!
Beaches and public parks, in fact, will be closed on certain days in certain parts of the country.
• Eastern Cape and Garden Route (areas with highest infection rate): closed from 16th Dec to 3d Jan
• KwaZulu-Natal: closed on 16th, 25th, 26th and 31st Dec 2020 and the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Jan 2021
• Northern Cape and Western Cape (except Garden Route): open but from 9am to 6pm
Holidays are traditionally a time of togetherness and social gathering, so it was perhaps not so unexpected to see such restrictions - especially since our country seems to be facing the much dreaded second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Let's hope these measures don't take too heavy a strain on our economy while keeping us safe!
