[Fwd: Bid to block Zapiro's Muhammad cartoon]

By Yusuf Moolla

An interdict was served late last night against the Mail & Guardian and
its editor, Nic Dawes, after it published a cartoon by Jonathan Shapiro
(Zapiro) depicting the prophet Muhammad.

Dawes said the cartoon depicted Muhammad lying on a couch speaking to
his psychiatrist: "The cartoon picks up on the Facebook group which
encouraged people to send pictures of the prophet."

He said when the first newspapers were distributed, he received a call
from attorney Yusuf Ismail, stating that further distributions should be

"At that time I could not stop further distributions, and I would not
have," said Dawes.

He said an interdict was then served and handled by Judge Mayat at the
Johannesburg High Court last night.

The Facebook page, "Everybody Draw Muhammad Day", encouraged users to
submit images of the prophet yesterday to protest against threats made
by a radical Muslim group against the creators of US TV series South
Park, for depicting Muhammad in a bear suit.

The page has attracted more than 100 000 people.

In Pakistan yesterday, the government ordered all internet service
providers to block the page.

The case against the Mail & Guardian was brought by the Jamiatul Ulama.

[Fwd: Zuma loses his cool at SA's housing failure (summarised)]

By Xolani Mbanjwa
Political Bureau

The government had failed millions of people who were living "like pigs"
in informal settlements, and efforts to explain to them why this was so
after more than a decade and a half of democracy would be meaningless,
President Jacob Zuma said on Tuesday.

Zuma told a meeting of the President's Co-ordinating Council that the
conditions he found on Monday's unannounced visit to Johannesburg's
Sweetwaters informal settlement had brought him close to tears.

He was addressing a special meeting of the council, which brings
together ministers, premiers, MECs and mayors to deal with service
issues across national, provincial and local government.

The focus on Tuesday was on "unpacking the human settlements delivery
agreement" and discussing solutions to obstacles blocking provision of
service, Zuma said. He rebuked departments for having budget rollovers
every year and said he could not comprehend how the state could fail to
spend money while service lagged behind.

"One lady lives in a place that when you come in, you may believe that
people left this shack 10 years ago. People are sleeping like pigs,"
Zuma said.

"How does it happen that some of our people still live in such areas, 16
years into our freedom and democracy?" Zuma asked.

Zuma expressed dismay at government officials who, he said, were aware
of shack-dwellers' living conditions, but who sat on their hands.

He also questioned foreign nationals who "forged" documents to gain
access to services meant for South African citizens, and locals who
received government houses and chose to sell or rent them out and move
back into shacks.

[Fwd: Zuma's wife left in the dark (summarised)]

By Wendy Jasson da Costa

Just months after she was nearly evicted from her plush Durban home,
South Africa's first lady Nompumelelo Ntuli-Zuma is in the dark, with no
lights or water.

That's because neither she, nor the president or their benefactors, have
paid the utilities bills. Nor is it the first time that they have

According to the latest information available to The Mercury
[newspaper], the eThekwini municipality is owed a total of R9 564.87.

It will have to be paid in full before the municipality will again
restore services to the exclusive Innes Road mansion in Morningside.

The Mercury understands that the house - which has eight bedrooms - has
been without lights and water since last week.

politically correct to refer to power failures as "black outs".

Fat cops get fit for World Cup

South Africa's police have launched a fitness regime to battle obesity, after worries were raised about their ability to keep fans safe at the World Cup.

Police commissioner Bheki Cele said new recruits should fit into the same-size uniform for their whole careers.

Officers needing a larger size will be given a year to slim down or face being kicked off the force, he said.

Earlier this month, a study found almost half the officers in Port Elizabeth were clinically obese.



[Fwd: Moron of the year: Julius Malema]

It's now almost official - Julius Malema is one of the world's [biggest]
morons, according to Time magazine.

The magazine annually publishes an eagerly awaited list of the 100 most
influential people in the world. Last week, it also published a list of
the 100 least influential people, sub-divided into four categories:
losers; flame-outs; morons and slimy bastards.

ANC Youth League president Malema was named one of more than 20 morons
to feature on the list of Least Influential People of 2010.

"President of South Africa's African National Congress Youth League
Malema is just like Joe Biden - if instead of innocuous, silly slipups,
Biden delivered violent, racist, misogynist rants. It got so bad, he's
been censured by his party and convicted of hate speech. So he just said
violent things about the party."

[Fwd: More than 10 000 SA cops in jail]

More than 10 000 police officers were serving jail time countrywide, the
Sowetan newspaper reported on Tuesday.

National police commissioner General Bheki Cele made the statement at
the funeral of three Amersfoort police officers shot dead last week.

Cele said well over 10 000 police officers were in jail, without saying
how many had been sentenced and how many were awaiting trial prisoners.

The Independent Complaints Directorate said these statistics would be
released in September. - Sapa
