By mid-1985 air traffic between Lubango on the Atlantic coast and Cuito Cuanavale in southern Angola had grown exponentially. Since the railway line running east had been rendered useless by UNITA, the MPLA was relying heavily on transport planes to get their logistics to the front. Daily flights of the Soviet Antonovs could be seen carrying troops and material to Menongue in support of the MPLA's war effort. This turned into a veritable flood of planes by late August when the MPLA launched their offensive against UNITA. As you heard last episode, the Russians and Cubans had tired of being forced into defensive positions by the South Africans and UNITA and had decided to launch a two pronged as part of Operation Second Congress. The initial thrust began to the east into the Cazombo salient, while a second thrust turned south east. The SA Air Force was then called in to help ferry UNITA troops as well as their own material in something that the South Africans called Operation Magneto. SA Air Force Mobile Air Operations Teams or MOATs were based at Cago Couthino and Cazombo and they guided the Hercules and Pumas in at night. That was to avoid being shot down by the MiGs which operated only during the day. It was thought that the final phase of the battle for South Africa had begun, at least that's how the hawks inside cabinet regarded this part of the Border War. The Recces moved into Angola in support of UNITA and their mission was to shoot down Antonov and other MPLA transport aircraft using captured Russian SA-9 missile systems. The Angolans were flying aggressive missions daily, resupplying FAPLA on the ground and conducting casevacs. The Mi-25 gunship helicopters, provided flushing fire, air-to-ground support, firing their 57mm rockets at possible UNITA targets, and sometimes, using their cannons. Watching these flights were the Recces and members of 32 Battalion seconded to UNITA. The SADF was monitoring the Angolan army radio and picked up that many of the helicopter flights were used to ferry the all-important Soviet and Cuban advisors around the battle zones. The Angolan push called Second Congress now presented an opportunity for some score settling – Pretoria had always regarded the Soviet presence as a perversion, warning the Russians that playing around in South Africa's back yard would have consquences.

Every country has their infamous criminals, and Gert van Rooyen and Joey Haarhoff was South Africa's first serial killer couple. Active in both Pretoria and Johannesburg during the late 1980's, their crimes shocked the nation, leaving deep scars on the collective psyche of an entire generation. The fates of at least six of their victims are still unknown, and their stories have often been described as “the tragedy that won't die". Learn more about your ad choices.

It all started out as a passion while growing up listening to my uncle's record collection of Pop, Reggae, Soul and Jazz music. 1997 was the year i initially started practicing my skill in djying while in high school in Pretoria (the capital of House Music back then), i used to play at parties, school bashes and other social gatherings. By 2000, i had a small collection of records and a mini sound system that my nother bought for me after deeing how passionate i was in music. My passion always lied in Deep House which was influenced by the love i had for Jazz chords and the rhythmic melodies it possesses. I played in various places around pretoria where I mastered the craft. I've shared the stage with many big acts in the dj industry. Playing Deep House is somewhat a thing that heals my soul and moves me positively.bookings : 060 368 9562
After two years of civil war - and eight days of AU-mediated talks in South Africa - the Ethiopian federal government and Tigrayan authorities have signed a cessation of hostilities agreement. But what's in the deal, and will this be the end of the war, which also - notoriously - includes Eritrea? Also in the programme: the world's largest tropical peatlands in the Congo Basin may be approaching a tipping point where they flip from being a major carbon store to a major carbon emitter; and how could the new far right element in Benjamin Netanyahu's expected next coalition affect Israel's policies at home - and the country's standing abroad?

By the second half of 1984 the Joint Monitoring Commission was virtually on its last legs and the SADF Special Forces were involved in a number of missions both by sea and across the cutline. The first we're going to hear about was an the audacious plan to blow up Angolan railway rolling stock, including locomotives at the shunting yard at Lobito in Benguela province on the Atlantic Coast north of the Catumbela Estuary. If you travel there now it's a beautiful beach, palm trees sway on the breeze, small fishing boats come and go and the sea is a azure turquoise. Forty years ago it was a crucial hub in the MPLAs infrastructure. After 1974 diesel-electric locomotives were used to ferry heavy weapons and material between Lobito and Huambo to the east on the main route towards Zambia and southern Congo. By 1984 this railway line had been out of operation for at least six years because of UNITAs sabotage, but the movement of war material between Lobito and Huambo was important to FAPLA. Twenty two of the locomotives were GE U20Cs from the United States, and in 1983, another 12 had made there way there from Brazil. Because the South African Railways used the same locomotives, it meant the Recces could practice on the same machines. Back in South Africa, the ANCs unofficial internal ally the United Democratic Front had been formed, and protests in the country's black townships had exploded in violence. PW Botha's government was now convinced that only a military option could save the country from the ANC, and the security forces were expanding their power. They also feared that if Namibia achieved independence, SWAPO would support the ANC from next door. It was at this time that 32 Company received an interesting set of orders. The JMC initiative I've covered was floundering and it was evident that SWAPO was capitalizing on the agreement negotiated by Pretoria and Luanda to infiltrate what was supposed to be a Free Zone in southern Angola – free of armed insurgents. As there was no obvious way to deal with this openly, Pretoria launched a series of clandestine steps to stop SWAPO from re-establishing themselves in FAPLAs areas. This meant 32 Battalion would now dress and operate like UNITA, under a new banner called 154 Battalion. Major Jan Hougaard who was 2 IC in 32 was tasked along with Commandant Johan Schutte of Military Intelligence to setup this new initiative.

Die burgemeester van Tshwane, Randall Williams, het die onlangse pogings om grond te beset wat aan die stad in Ga-Rankuwa, noord van Pretoria, behoort, ten sterkste veroordeel. Hy sê die EFF in Tshwane was weer eens aanstigters van die onwettige optrede. Die woordvoerder van die stad, Sipho Stuurman, sê die Metropolisie het verlede week teen 'n poging tot grondbesetting in die gebied opgetree. Elf onvoltooide strukture is herbou nadat 17 strukture twee weke gelede van dieselfde perseel verwyder is.

L'une des plus grandes richesses du Lesotho, ce sont ses réserves d'eau. Ce petit pays enclavé en Afrique du Sud tire la majeure partie de ses revenus du détournement de son eau vers le voisin sud-africain. Ce partenariat remonte à 1986, quand Sud-Africains et Lesothiens ont convenu de la construction d'infrastructures gigantesques pour assurer la distribution de l'eau, qui permet aussi la production d'électricité. Un projet indispensable aux deux pays. De notre correspondant à Maseru C'est l'immeuble le plus haut du centre-ville de la capitale Maseru et il appartient à l'autorité de développement des hauts plateaux du Lesotho (LHDA), l'organisme qui s'occupe du captage des eaux, de leur retenue et de leur transfert jusqu'à la frontière avec l'Afrique du Sud. Ce projet pharaonique dépend de la bonne relation entre les deux pays, explique Masilo Phakoe, son porte-parole : « C'est l'un des plus beaux exemples où deux pays travaillent ensemble pour exploiter une ressource naturelle de manière pacifique et de façon à bénéficier au développement économique des deux pays. De nombreux pays du monde sont venus dans la région et au Lesotho en particulier pour apprendre comment on fait. » Depuis le lancement du projet en 1986, le Lesotho a perçu 757 millions d'euros de royalties pour le transfert des eaux vers l'Afrique du Sud. Certains pensent que Pretoria ne paie pas assez cher ce service indispensable. La province du Gauteng, qui comprend Johannesburg et Pretoria, est directement alimentée par les eaux des barrages du Lesotho, pays montagneux qui s'élève à plus de 3 000 mètres d'altitude. Ce fut d'ailleurs l'un des thèmes des élections générales qui se sont tenues le 7 octobre pour renouveler l'Assemblée nationale. ► À lire aussi : Élections législatives au Lesotho, pays pauvre, violent et politiquement fragmenté « Tous les partis promettaient de changer les choses, pour percevoir plus de royalties. Ils parlent de revoir les traités. Ils pensent que l'Afrique du Sud est trop puissante. Mais il faut sans cesse rappeler que ce n'est pas vrai. Si vous regardez le traité, les deux parties ont le même poids dans les négociations », explique Masilo Phakoe. Le Lesotho abîme son paysage Certes, l'Afrique du Sud verse des millions d'euros au Lesotho. Mais c'est le petit royaume qui abîme profondément son propre paysage. Ce sont ses populations qui sont déplacées. Pour Oscar Mwangi, professeur en sciences politiques à l'université nationale du Lesotho et auteur de plusieurs articles sur ce sujet, le transfert des eaux se fait au détriment des populations locales. « Des pâturages et les terres arables sont sacrifiés pour la construction de ce projet. Et le Lesotho est un petit pays. Ce serait malheureux que cela provoque de l'insécurité alimentaire, s'inquiète le professeur. Je pense que c'était un bon projet, à condition qu'il soit bien géré et que les populations obtiennent ce qu'elles méritent. » Le projet est en cours d'extension, avec la construction d'un nouveau barrage. Il permettra à l'Afrique du Sud de sécuriser son accès en eau et au Lesotho de produire plus d'électricité. La phase 2 devrait être achevée en 2027, soit avec sept ans de retard.
Die Suid-Afrikaanse departement van justisie en korrektiewe dienste sê die geskorste Pretoriase landdros, Desmond Nair, is van wangedrag aangekla ingevolge die Wet op Landdroste en die Geregtelike Gedragskode vir Landdroste. Nair het in die gespesialiseerde handelsmisdaadhof in Pretoria verskyn op aanklag van korrupsie. Hy het na bewering sekerheids-opgraderings ter waarde van 200 000 Suid-Afrikaanse rand vir sy huis in Silverton van Bosasa aanvaar. Die woordvoerder, Chrispin Phiri, sê minister Ronald Lamola glo die reg moet sy loop neem.
Martin Oosthuizen was born in 1965 and grew up in the small town of Senekal in the Free State - South Africa. After matriculating there he completed two years of national service as an officer in the South African defence force. He then completed his tertiary studies at the University of Pretoria where he was awarded a B. Com degree (marketing, human resource management). He married in 1991 and has two young children. He now lives in the wine making Constantia valley, just outside Cape Town. He is the author of the book "More Than a Million Canaries", owner of a Tour Operator agency and founder of the Orphan Care Foundation. Since his book was published in 2009 he has spoken on local radio stations and appeared in newspaper and national magazines about his journey of overcoming financial ruin and sowing hope into the lives of orphaned and vulnerable children. In his book he shares the highs and lows, the pain and triumph of overcoming financial crisis and the emotional turmoil that accompanies it. He learnt to listen to the Voice inside that strengthens you with the bread of life and by implementing practical steps to get back on track, both emotionally and financially. He has been restored financially even during the most difficult time in the global financial crisis that affected the Travel industry severely. He started a foundation caring for orphaned and vulnerable children - "Orphan Care Foundation" sowing love, hope and purpose into lives of children without parents. South Africa currently has more than 2 million aids orphans. Martin's vision is to share his message of hope around the world and to get his book into the hands of those who need this message of hope and inspiration. The title of his book "More Than a Million Canaries" is based on scripture from the bible in The Message translation. Luke 12 verse 6 & 7 (The message): What's the price of two or three pet canaries? Some loose change, right? But God never overlooks a single one. And he pays even greater attention to you, down to the last detail - even numbering the hairs on your head! So don't be intimidated by all this bully talk. You are worth more than a million canaries". www.MartinOosthuizen.com and www.More-Than-A-Million-Canaries.com
We just finished hearing about Operation Askari, and a quick note. I said that the Eland armoured would no longer be used for cross -border operations after Askari, but that's incorrect. A listener who was on board an Eland much later in 1987 explained how he was part of an operation called Firewood, where the Eland was used to head across the cutline once more. Apologies for that, and thanks Ian for the correction. FAPLA and the SADF were conducting patrols together as part of the Joint Monitoring Commission or JMC setup after the signing of the Lusaka Agreement in February 1984 – a precursor to a full cease fire. The reality was neither the South Africans nor the Angolans were going to adhere to the agreement terms Pretoria continued to support UNITA, while FAPLA after an intial period of seemingly trying to impose discipline on SWAPO, gave up and allowed their PLAN fighters to continue infiltrating Ovambao. SWAPO mortared the JMC joint patrols a number of times and firefights had developed through March so I'm sure some of the Angolan soldiers were feeling just a tad schizophrenic. Still, the main JMC officials – both the South Africans and the Angolans – gave the impression to each that they were attempting to make this whole cease-fire known as the Lusaka Agreement work. While the SADF and FAPLA were trying to find themselves, the Recces hadn't stopped special operations. In early 1984 and despite discussing land-based cease-fires, the SADF continued to focus on seaborne ops. Their specops operators, the Special Forces were instructed to investigate the destruction of the main water plant supplying the Angolan capital Luanda. This facility was on the south bank of the Bengo River at Quifangonda - Operation Bouganvilia was born.

Die DA in Gauteng sê dokters opereer in gevaarlike hoë hitte-toestande in die teaters by die Charlotte Maxeke-akademiese hospitaal in Johannesburg. Die lugversorgingstelsel het dié week onklaar geraak. Dit is die tweede groot hospitaal wat probleme met lugversorging in die huidige hittegolf ondervind het. Alle eenhede by die Steve Biko Akademiese Hospitaal in Pretoria het verlede week ingegee. Jack Bloom van die DA sê dit is onaanvaarbaar om in hoë temperature te opereer want dit verhoog die gevaar van infeksies:

Die Handelsbeleggingsforum in die buurland gaan ondersoek instel na hoe Suid-Afrika meer beleggings vanuit Saoedi-Arabië kan lok. Die aankondiging kom na die Namibiese regering reeds ‘n geruime tyd poog om beleggers uit die Midde Ooste te lok. Die negende sitting van die Gesamentlike Ekonomiese Kommissie vir die Republiek van Suid-Afrika en die Koninkryk van Saoedi-Arabië het gister in Pretoria begin. Dit is tydens hierdie sitting aan die lig gebring dat die algehele bilaterale handel tussen die twee lande op 66 miljard Suid-Afrikaanse rand staan. Volgens die buurland se handelsminister, Ebrahim Patel, staan uitvoere op 5,5 miljard rand en invoere op 60,61 miljard rand:
As trains ground to a halt in South Africa due to loadshedding and cable theft, forcing rail commuters to rely on taxis, students from Soshanguve Technical High School decided to come up with a solution and developed a solar powered train locomotive. It has photovoltaic panels fitted to the roof, moves along an 18-metre test track and can reach speeds of up to 30km an hour. Acting principal of the school, Tladi Mashiane, told BizNews the University of Pretoria had offered to help the school with its innovation drive, while pupils Ronnie Masindi, Princess Nkwana and Lethabo Nkadimeng that we spoke to were surprised by the huge amount of publicity their experiment attracted. The pupils were invited to display their solar train at the Sasol Innovation Expo. – Linda van Tilburg Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Operation Askari has ended but not the recriminations. While on the surface the SADF gave off a great deal of positive propaganda, the loss of 21 men and equipment including three Ratels, and the haphazard manner in which the planning had taken place, was a sign that all was not well. The morale of the Citizen Force units was unacceptable said the permanent force officers – and they were right. 61 Mech operation archives have a document which named Battle Group Delta otherwise known as Victor as “the worst battle group in 82 Mechanised Brigade”. The armoured squadron had performed well, but in the eyes of seasoned officers, the rest of the personnel had not. And yet, we also know that the planning for Askari did not follow the comprehensive blueprints of previous ops - battle group Victor had been sent into Cuvelai understrength – sent into a well defended position without superior firepower and without the element of surprise. Pretoria had rushed in where angels feared to tread. Despite the debriefings which were not a happy process for the SADF, there was a silver lining. The Angolans were now in a spot of bother. SWAPOs campaigns into Ovamboland had prompted the SADF invasion, now FAPLAs units needed to recover from the battering they'd taken over the past two months. Cassinga was now the southern point of SWAPO action, and the political commissars were negative about trying to head into Ovamboland for the usual summer invasion. International pressure was also being increased on both the Angolans and the South Africans. By 1984 the American domestic backing for the concept of Constructive Engagement of Pretoria was waning. It is rather ironic then, that at this precise moment, the Angolan government was also pressurizing SWAPO to find a solution. In December 1983 South African Foreign Minister Pik Botha had sent a letter to UN Secretary-General Javier Perez de Cuellar, offering to withdraw all troops from Angola for 30 days.

Piet le Roux (Sakeliga uitvoerende hoof) gesels op die Beleidsradar-insetsel vir Sakekern (Pretoria FM) oor die voorgestelde BEE-kode vir die regspraktyk, naamlik vir prokureurs en advokate. Hierdie kode word voorgestel om ingrypende BEE-bepalings in die regsprofessie te vestig.Volgens Le Roux poog die kode om strenger rassetransformasie in die regsprofessie af te dwing en om onredelike bepalings wat selfs op verpligte arbeid neerkom, in te stel. Daarby kom die kode verder daarop neer dat dit bykans onmoontlik sal wees vir regspraktisyns om te praktiseer indien daar nie aan BEE voldoen word nie.Die kode sal 'n vertrouensverhouding veroorsaak wat die verhouding tussen praktisyns en hul kliënte sal benadeel en maak in geheel inbreuk op die nodige onafhanklikheid van die regsberoepe, meen Le Roux. Sakeliga staan die kode in geheel teë en het onlangs kommentaar daarop ingedien. __________________________BEE code: Sakeliga opposed to racially based interference in the independence of the legal professionPiet le Roux (Sakeliga's CEO) talks in the Beleidsradar insert for Sakekern (Pretoria FM) about the proposed BEE code for the legal profession, namely for attorneys and advocates. This code has been proposed with a view to introducing BEE provisions in the law profession.According to Le Roux the code is aimed at enforcing stricter racial transformation in the law profession and at introducing unreasonable provisions, which boil down to compulsory labour. Furthermore, the code implies that it would be virtually impossible for legal practitioners to practise their profession if they do not comply with BEE. The code will also harm the relationship of trust between practitioners and their clients, and in general the code violates the essential independence of the legal professions, Le Roux says. Sakeliga is opposed to the code in its entirety and recently submitted commentary in this regard.

Russia's relationship with the African continent dates back to the Soviet era and Cold War proxy battles between Russia and the US. These days the Russian presence in Africa might be lighter, but it's also growing and the dynamics are changing. From the deployment of Russian mercenaries like the Wagner Group, to the politics of soft power and investment, we focus on Russia's past and present relationship with Africa, the likely impacts of the war in Ukraine on food security in Africa, as well as an examination of the ways in which African countries have been attempting to assert and maintain their sovereignty in the context of this most recent iteration of great power politics.

In this wide ranging interview, political heavyweight Helen Zille unpacks the thinking behind a multi-stakeholder group established this week which intends wresting power away from Pretoria to the Western Cape Government. The group is segments in SA's Constitution to argue that on areas where the State is failing, there's a legal obligation on local government to take over. Leading its brief is police services, but its focus also includes restoring the collapse of rail services - and the ability of the Provincial Premier to call Referendums.

C'est à Pretoria, en Afrique du Sud, que s'achève ce dimanche 25 septembre l'événement Africa Aerospace and Defense, un rassemblement de professionnels de l'aéronautique et de l'espace. Si le continent se développe sur ces questions - avec l'Afrique du Sud, le Nigeria ou encore l'Égypte en pointe -, d'autres États sont à la traîne. Le Burkinabè Sékou Ouedraogo est ingénieur et fondateur de l'AASO, l'African Aeronautics & Space Organisation, qui cherche justement à développer l'aérospatiale sur le continent et à convaincre les décideurs qu'il s'agit d'un secteur essentiel du développement.
Die Suid-Afrikaanse vakverbond Saftu het die beweerde mishandeling van 'n huishulp deur sommige lede van 'n huishouding in Pretoria waar sy gewerk het sterk veroordeel. Die onthullings deur die Verenigde Huiswerkers van Suid-Afrika beskryf gru-voorvalle van seksuele teistering, seksuele mishandeling en uiterste uitbuiting van die migrantwerker deur haar werkgewers. Die woordvoerder van Saftu, Trevor Shaku, sê dis duidelik die werkgewers respekteer nie arbeidswette en Suid-Afrika se menseregte-statute nie:

‘n Bekende forensiese kriminoloog geen haar mening oor parool vir Oscar Pistorius. Hy sal homself in toom kan hou, sou hy op parool vrygelaat word, lui maatskaplike en sielkundige verslae van die Atteridgeville-gevangenis in Pretoria. Die verslae vorm deel van die departement van korrektiewe dienste se hofstukke wat die eertydse Olimpiese atleet se jongste aansoek – dat hy reeds in aanmerking kom vir parool – teenstaan. Terwyl die departement nie in beginsel parool vir Pistorius teenstaan nie, heers daar tans verwarring oor wanneer Pistorius in aanmerking daarvoor kom. Hy meen dit was reeds in Februarie 2021, terwyl die departement meen dit is eers in Maart 2023. Forensiese kriminoloog, dr. Pixie du Toit, gesels met Kosmos 94.1 Nuus.

By April 1983, SADF intelligence picked up that SWAPO had begun improving its military position in Angola and that their armed wing PLAN had managed a major incursion into Ovamboland. Then things went very quiet and intelligence reports suggested there seemed to be a link between SWAPOs special Unit being withdrawn, the signs of a large incursion into SWA which was to follow in 1984. At the same time, the SADF Chief of Staff Operations in Pretoria noted that the build-up going on across the border was biggest ever and had ordered a series of counter measures including Operation Meebos which we heard about last episode. While the politicians fretted about the global impact, on the ground top SADF officers were calling for another urgent invasion of Angola. As the discussions raged, it was clear that something needed to be done and that something would lead to one of the most significant actions of the Border War called Operation Askari. This was going to be different from previous conventional ops, because this time FAPLA, the Cubans and SWAPO were going to be respond more aggressively than during previous ops. And the SADF would face two far more serious challenges, the Soviet T54/55 tank and new radar controlled missile systems. The SADF and Jonas Savimbi's UNITA had planned an operation together to destroy FAPLA headquarters in Cangamba – a small town in central Angola. UNITA's initial assaults had been repulsed and they asked for assistance in overcoming a strong FAPLA contingent in the town. Unfortunately, there was a big problem following this success. The Angolans called on the Soviets to step up their weapon deliveries including the all-important T54/55s, and the Cubans increased the number of troops in Angola by 5 000 bringing the total number to 25000.
