    News24.com | Give us reality, not news

    I would just like to know how News24 doesn‘t cover the violence or trurth happening. I drove from Sandton to Northem over the weekend. I witnessed three land grabs in a space of 200km.

    News24.com | Did Julius Malema score an own-goal?

Juju as he is affectionally known, Malema has established himself as the kingmaker of South African politics and I would want to call him the supreme president of the republic because the ANC government listens to him.

    News24.com | Dear Melanie, about the king and Kallie

    Dear Melanie, Unlike when you were at varsity and trashed any and all voices from having the opportunity to debate anything that was opposed to your ANC aligned viewpoint, SA today is a democracy and Kallie and the king can chat to anyone they like. That includes each other. You seem to forget the ANC has controlled the land question... Continue reading

    News24.com | Premier League agony of a Liverpool supporter

    Being a Liverpool fan when it comes to the English Premier League comprises of agony, annoyance, frustration and regret. Each transfer window you feel Liverpool are either a defender or an attacker or midfielder or goalkeeper away from winning the Premier League.  Ever since the 2008/2009 season under Rafa Benitez, where Liverpool fell four points short of winning the English...
