And in local news....
The defence's closing argument revolves largely around claiming that there is a big conspiracy to discredit Zuma so that he can't run for president in 2008. That's pretty much their strongest argument.
In more news from the offices of the mayor of Cape Town, the DA's audit to find out what the ANC has left them with has discovered R25 million of city assets and property missing, stolen or just generally unaccounted for. This includes not only the expected staplers and calculators and pens, but also guns, bullet proof vests, and 'heritage' artwork and valuables (which is alone worth R6 million). It's like the outgoing mayorship took everything that wasn't bolted down. Someone should check the kitchen to see if the sink is still there.
And lastly, the DA is now calling for the Home Affairs minister to resign after Home Affairs announced it temporarily could not issue any passports. Why can they not issue passports, you ask? Is this some terrible foreign affairs bungle that means South Africans are no longer allowed to leave the country? No, quite simply, Home Affairs has run out of blanks. Run out. Of blank passports. So they can't make anymore. Until they get more blanks.
