Mandela's condition serious but improving: President Zuma

Jun 16 2013, 3:54pm CDT | by

Cape Town, June 17 (IANS) Former South African president Nelson Mandela, who has been hospitalised for over a week, continues to get better in a Pretoria hospital, President Jacob Zuma said Sunday.

Cape Town, June 17 — Former South African president Nelson Mandela, who has been hospitalised for over a week, continues to get better in a Pretoria hospital, President Jacob Zuma said Sunday.

The revered ex-leader remained in a serious condition as he recovered from a lung infection, BBC reported Zuma as saying.

"Over the last two days, although he remains serious, his doctors have stated that his improvement has been sustained," Zuma said, adding that the 94-year-old anti-apartheid icon "continues to engage with family".

Zuma made the remarks while addressing a gathering for Youth Day in KwaZulu-Natal province in remembrance of the 1976 Soweto uprisings against apartheid.

The president asked the audience to join him in wishing Mandela a happy Father's Day.

Mandela has been in and out of hospital several times since last December.

Ferguson protesters invoke Che – oh, the irony!

Aug 26 2014 6:40pm CDT | Source: WND

By Humberto Fontova When a comedian’s “brilliant” witticism bombs he’ll often complain to the “dumb” audience that: “The irony is lost on you people!” In this spirit of “lost irony” I give you (pro) Michael-Brown protesters wearing Che Guevara T-Shirts at Ferguson demonstrations. Why “lost irony,” some readers might ask? “Don’t Shoot!” is the Ferguson demonstrator slogan/chant, right? Well, upon his very f ...

Former South African President Calls for Boycott of Israel

Aug 12 2014 8:32am CDT | Source: Big Government

South Africa's ex-President Thabo Mbeki has called for a boycott of Israeli goods to show solidarity with Palestinians. The public should mobilise against Israel so that it "does pay a price for the position that it is taking", Mr Mbeki said in the capital, Pretoria. About 2,000 people, mostly Palestinians, have died in the conflict in Gaza since July. Most South Africans have historically supporte ...

Aug 6 2014 3:35pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama called on African nations Wednesday to forcefully tackle health crises, security challenges and government corruption that could stymie the continent's economic progress, as he concluded an unprecedented summit.

EXCLUSIVE: Labour Press Officer Speaks out About Defection to UKIP

Aug 6 2014 5:35am CDT | Source: Big Government

A little while ago, I took a giant step forward and joined UKIP: the ‘people’s army’. Was I right? There are now around forty thousand of us members. But my own journey was a little different. For a small part of my professional career, a decade ago, I’d served as a Labour Party Press Officer working closely on a daily routine with Cabinet ministers and ambitious special advisers, including Ed Balls and Ed and David Miliband. I led the media operation across key Labour ...

American Media Biased Coverage of the Crisis in Gaza

Aug 1 2014 4:29pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

As a Palestinian living in the United States, I must say that the reporting of Fox News and CNN has no connection to the reality that Palestinians know only too well. Their coverage is unfair and fails to convey the whole truth of what is transpiring there. I have intensively followed the news since the abduction of the three Israeli teens on June 12, and it has become abundantly clear to me, and to many others, that the mainstream media in America are biased toward Israel. CNN a ...

The Gaza War and Anti-Semitism

Jul 29 2014 9:42am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

I keep reading outraged comments from Jewish organizations and media condemning those (like me) who believe and say that the Gaza war is resulting in a spike in anti-Semitism. (They agree that incidents of anti-Semitism are increasing but reject the idea that it has anything to do with Israeli actions.) Their argument makes no sense. It goes like this. Anti-Semitism is not caused by anything. It is ...

The Lamp Beside the Golden Door: Protecting Refugee Children at our Borders

Jul 27 2014 7:46pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

Nelson Mandela once said, "We owe our children, the most vulnerable citizens in our society, a life free of violence and fear." That phrase from the Noble Prize-winning global beacon should be our only mandate as we address the incendiary situation along the border as desperate droves of children fleeing violence in Central America for the refuge of the United States are met with an often impenetrable fence of antipathy.  Conversely, America has had a r ...

Commons Speaker John Bercow Strengthens His Position Despite Disastrous 12 Months

Jul 22 2014 2:45am CDT | Source: Big Government

John Bercow has had a rather difficult year. Twelve months ago, the Speaker of the House of Commons suffered public humiliation at the hands of Conservative MPs, who passed to the press physical evidence of so-called "Bollocked By Bercow" badges they were secretly wearing to subvert him. The badges were designed by backbencher Simon Burns, who famously muttered that Bercow was a "stupid, sanctimonious dwarf", only to apologise to dwarves for the offensive comparison. ...
