Rahul's aam aadmi avatar: Janata class travel to Punjab is just another PR stunt

Rahul did the first ten km on day one, and the rest the next day. Indian media is not proactive enough to position its journalists in some remote place as Gaurikund; even in disasters, they steal flights on choppers that could have carried relief instead. #Punjab #Rahul Gandhi #South Africa #Varanasi #Gaurikund #Dehradoon #Rail yatra

South Africa's Rainbow Nation turns dark as immigrant attacks rise| Reuters

JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - When he heard angry screams and the hammering of hatchets on the door of his shack last week, Malawian Folias Sakai thought he was about to become the eighth person to be killed in anti-immigrant attacks that have swept South Africa this month. Instead Sakai managed to escape the mob by scrambling over the metal rooftop of his shack in a Johannesburg slum into the safety of a nearby alleyway. "They were going to kill us, said Sakais Zimbabwean friend Tendayi Chimukako, who helped him escape. #Politics #Economy #France #Middle East #science #markets #South Africa #United Kingdom #Zimbabwe #Entertainment #Zambia #opinion

JOHANNESBURG, (Reuters) - South Africa's President Jacob Zuma on Saturday cancelled a state visit to Indonesia to deal with a wave of anti-immigrant violence at home and promised peace to those who wished to remain in Africa's most advanced economy. The unrest which began in the port city Durban two weeks ago and spread to Johannesburg, Africa's economic hub, appeared to have died down on Saturday as police patrolled trouble spots. "We are certainly going to stop the violence," Zuma told hundreds of displaced African immigrants at a camp in Chatsworth, south of Durban, in a speech televised on eNCA. #United States #India #South Africa #Africa #Argentina #United Kingdom #Entertainment #lifestyle

JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - South African police fired rubber bullets and tear gas on Thursday to disperse anti-immigrant protesters in Johannesburg, as the country's president called for a halt to a wave of violence directed at foreigners. Around 200 protesters, shouting that they wanted immigrants to leave, had pelted passing vehicles and police with rocks in an eastern suburb of the country's biggest commercial city, triggering the show of force.
