This month, South Africa's former president Jacob Zuma may finally go to trial after decades of alleged corruption. For South Africans this trial is divisive. Zuma's supporters say it's all a campaign to destroy the legacy of a great Black liberator. His critics maintain a conviction could indicate a new day for those seeking to curb corruption. The recent unrest this summer also looms in South Africa's mind, and so regardless of the outcome people worry could there be more violence?   VICE News Reports spoke to freelance journalist Ntshepeng Mtoma in Johannesburg, to explain what this case could mean for South Africa's future.

South Africa's President Jacob Zuma believes he has been poisoned, repeatedly. He claims to be the victim of a long, sophisticated, and unfinished plot to assassinate him. But who would want to kill a man still celebrated for his role as a fighter in the struggle against apartheid? Could it be linked to the allegations of massive corruption against him? Or is there a broader conspiracy at work – an international plot to silence a man who claims to be speaking up for South Africa's neglected poor? In this five-part series the BBC's Africa correspondent, Andrew Harding, digs into a mystery that links a case of poisoned underpants, to a plot to kill Nelson Mandela, to this year's riots that left 300 South Africans dead.

The jailing of former South African president Jacob Zuma sparked huge unrest in the country, but was there more behind the riots than the fact of his imprisonment? While some believe the riots were not only a reaction to Zuma's jailing for contempt of court, but a planned attempt to bring the country to its knees, others say poverty and inequality also played its part. Paul Connolly examines the factors behind the riots and asks how the country can rebuild from disturbances that have left many dead and parts of the country in ruins.

Los recientes disturbios en Sudáfrica se han cobrado ya más de 300 víctimas mortales. Los incidentes más graves se concentran en dos provincias, la de KwaZulu-Natal, de donde es originario el expresidente Jacob Zuma, y en Gauteng, donde se encuentran Pretoria y Johannesburgo. Los problemas comenzaron el pasado 9 de julio, inicialmente en forma de protestas por el encarcelamiento del polémico expresidente Jacob Zuma, que cumple una pena de prisión de quince meses por negarse a declarar por una serie de casos de corrupción en los que está implicado. Las protestas se han extendido con rapidez por buena parte del país porque el encarcelamiento de Zuma no ha sido más que una simple excusa. Lo que está alimentando el estallido de violencia son problemas sociales preexistentes, como la extrema desigualdad, el pavoroso desempleo, que alcanza a un tercio de la población, los elevados niveles de criminalidad en el país y el malestar general generado por la pésima gestión de la pandemia por parte del Gobierno. La magnitud de la destrucción -que incluye daños en centros comerciales, fábricas y almacenes, pequeños negocios e incluso escuelas- todavía se está evaluando. También prosiguen las operaciones policiales para recuperar los bienes fruto de los miles de saqueos que se han perpetrado en estos días. Los bienes recuperados serán, según el Ejecutivo, empleados como prueba y luego destruidos. Esto ha causado una gran controversia en el país. Sólo en la provincia de KwaZulu-Natal, el coste económico de los disturbios se estima en unos 1.300 millones de dólares), ya que 161 centros comerciales, 11 almacenes y ocho fábricas sufrieron grandes daños. Según el presidente Cyril Ramaphosa, los incidentes fueron "instigados" y "hubo gente que los planeó y los coordinó". Cuatro personas detenidas por presuntamente haber instigado la violencia de los pasados días ya han comparecido ante los tribunales, pero el origen del problema va mucho más allá y ese no tiene una solución tan sencilla y directa.

Welcome to the radio magazine that brings you news, commentary and analysis from a Black Left perspective. I'm Margaret Kimberley, along with my co-host Glen Ford. Coming up: The President of South Africa maintains that the recent riots that followed the arrest former president Jacob Zuma were actually part of an insurrection against the state. And, some things seldom change when the two parties switch places in the United States. President Joe Biden is just as hostile to China and Cuba as Donald Trump was. But first -- Broward County College in south Florida recently hosted a discussion about the turmoil in Haiti, where the president was assassinated by a mercenary force from Colombia. All the participants in the Browder College talk were Haitian Americans – among them, professor Reginald Darbonne and author and activist Pascal Robert, who emphasizes that class is an important part of Haiti's historical dynamic. That was author and activist Pascal Robert, speaking at Broward College, in South Florida. The continuity of US foreign policy, even as the Democrats and Republicans trade places in the White House, is quite amazing. Although Democrats portrayed President Donald Trump as representing everything they opposed, when Joe Biden took control of the Oval Office he left Trump's moves against China and Cuba intact, virtually unchanged. That subject was explored by Sean Blackmon, of Sputnik Radio, in an interview with Netfa Freeman, of the Black Alliance for Peace. That was Netfa Freeman, of the Black Alliance for Peace, on Sputnik Radio with Sean Blackmon and  Jacqueline Luqman. When former South African President Jacob Zuma was arrested on corruption charges, housands of his followers rioted and looted in two African Provinces, last week. President Cyril Ramaphosa claimed the disturbances amounted to an attempted insurrection against the state.

A BBC investigation has revealed that thousands of foreign children could be facing life in prison in Syria - because their parents were members of the Islamic State group. They are being moved from camps to secure children's homes - and ending up in adult jails. And there are fears they are being radicalised along the way. What will happen to these children and their mothers? Also in the programme, more than 70 people have now been killed in riots and looting in South Africa - violence that began with crowds protesting against the jailing of the former president, Jacob Zuma. And Haiti's Ambassador to the United States speaks about why his country has requested American support to help calm the chaos a power vacuum has created after the assassination of the Haitian president Jovenel Moise a week ago.

South Africa COLLAPSING, Armed Citizens SHOOTING Rioters As Army Deployed To Quell "Civil War." Riots and looting erupted in the wake of the arrest of South Africa's former president Jacob Zuma. Reports of armed citizens firing on rioters and several losing their lives show that this could be more of a widespread collapse. While it may be a bit hyperbolic some citizens have said this is a warzone or a civil war in South Africa But could something like that happen here? Perhaps a stretch, but Democrats are going after Trump with accusations of corruption and have already moved to indict trump affiliates. #SouthAfrica #Zuma #CivilWar Learn more about your ad choices.

This story may sound familiar. A major hack, with more than 1,000 businesses affected. According to cybersecurity experts, the Russia-based hacking group REvil is the source of the attack. Also, in South Africa, political tensions are growing after a court sentenced former president Jacob Zuma to prison for absconding from a corruption inquiry — a ruling that appears to strike at perceived official impunity. Zuma has struck back, comparing the judges to the white apartheid-era rulers he once fought. And, abortion activists and pro-choice gynecologists in ultra-Catholic Malta have created the country's first free family-planning service.
