LETS TALK RELATIONSHIPS WITH THE ZWANES: Challenges faced by blended families.

Blended families, or stepfamilies, are now common in the United States. Nearly half of marriages in the United States end in divorce. At least half of children in the U.S. live with a biological parent and a stepparent. This person might also be called a "bonus" parent.

Bringing two parents and their children together can be challenging. Children may be used to different parenting styles and family routines. Visitation or conflict between separating parents can cause stress. Conflict between stepparents and parents that live outside the new family can also increase stress. Another point of potential conflict is any new stepsiblings. It can take time for children to adapt to the new family structure. It may help to speak with a therapist about the transition before it begins.

SACP turns to the law to ensure Chris Hani’s killer is not released on parole.

The South African Communist Party (SACP) says it is turning to the law to ensure that Chris Hani’s killer, Janusz Walus, is not released on parole.

This comes after the Constitutional Court on 21 November ordered that Walus be released on parole within 10 days. He was serving a life sentence for killing Hani in 1993.

The SACP and its alliance partners picketed outside the Constitutional Court in Johannesburg.

A picket outside the highest court in the land revealed the SACP’s lack of closure to the assassination of former SACP Secretary-General, Chris Hani in 1993. The Communist Party’s Secretary-General, Solly Mapaila, announced their programme of action to prevent the release of Walus.

Final Phala Phala report handed to Parliament…but what now?

The much-awaited report was handed over to National Assembly Speaker Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula on Wednesday.

Ngcobo said that the panel was required to examine all the information presented to the panel.

"The research that was required was limited, and most of it was done by ourselves. The gist of the research was conducted by ourselves. We required extra time, because when the clock started ticking, we still had to go through information submitted. We were given the information well before hand, we already had a good sense of things. The ATM, UDM, and EFF gave us the information."
