According to News24 here, Mangosuthu Buthelezi has weighed in on the Manto matter on the side of the minister. He believes that the Sunday Times is witch-hunting Manto's alcoholism purely out of malice, just like the Marquis of Queensberry ruined Oscar Wilde by forcing him to confess to homosexual practices in court. Buthelezi infers that alcoholism, like homosexuality, obesity and smoking, are private matters that do not have any bearing on a person's fitness to hold a post.

So You're looking forward to the opening of Die Hard 4 this weekend? Me too. It's a long film, 2 hours and 6 minutes.

Pius Ncube, the Roman Catholic archbishop of Bulawayo, has said that Britain would be justified in invading its former colony to overthrow the regime of Robert Mugabe. Justified, maybe, but duty bound? Absolutely not!
