November 27, 2020 Find out more News November 29, 2018 RSF decries South African politician’s invective against reporters Reporters Without Borders (RSF) deplores South African opposition politician Julius Malema’s use of threats and insults against journalists and media outlets covering his party’s alleged involvement in an embezzlement scandal, and calls on the authorities to condemn his attempts to intimidate the press. Julius Malema. Crédit Photo: AFP On eve of the G20 Riyadh summit, RSF calls for public support to secure the release of jailed journalists in Saudi Arabia The leader of Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), South Africa’s second-largest opposition party, Malema has stepped up his threats and invectives in recent weeks. Naming five journalists on 20 November, he urged his supporters to “deal with them decisively” while adding to “never be violent with them.” The five journalists named by Malema – Max du Preez and Ferial Haffajee of News24, Ranjeni Munusamy of the Sunday Times, Peter Bruce of Business Day and Palesa Morudu – had pointed out the contradiction between the strong anti-corruption stance that the EFF has taken for years and the fact that it is now suspected of illegal funding. On 27 November, he suggested his party to “stop the invite” of these journalists to avoid situations where they “don’t feel safe”.“Inciting hatred against journalists is unworthy of a political leader, and irresponsible, because it encourages actual physical violence,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “The sole aim of these intimidatory methods is to deflect public debate about the matters of general interest revealed in the media. It is essential that the South African authorities condemn these dangerous comments and send a clear signal to any politician who resorts to insults and threats in response to facts exposed by the press”.A report entitled “The Great Bank Heist” about large-scale fraud and corruption at VBS Mutual Bank was widely covered by the media on 10 October. It revealed that the equivalent of more than 120 million euros of this mutual bank’s funds had been illegally diverted to around 50 people including a person linked to the EFF. The Daily Maverick online newspaper’s special investigative team, called Scorpio, reported ten days later that the EFF had received the equivalent of 833,000 euros from VBS Mutual Bank and that Malema was directly involved. Malema responded with a tweet telling Scorpio reporter Pauli Van Wyk to “Go to hell Satan.” The same day, he reacted to a column by News24 journalist Adriaan Basson about his use of insults by calling Basson a “racist thing” and a “white young boy.”History of insultsMalema has a history of directly targeting the media. Journalists who criticized EFF deputy president Floyd Shivambu’s racist attacks on a senior treasury official were called “house niggers” by Malema in June. In March, he accused the TV channel eNCA of supporting white supremacy, triggering a wave of death threats against eNCA journalists. He previously made the headlines in 2010 when he expelled BBC reporter Jonas Fisher from a news conference for interrupting him, calling Fisher a “bastard,” a “bloody agent” and a “small boy.” South Africa is ranked 28th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index.

Marco_Piunti/iStock(CHICAGO) — Authorities responding to a parked car completely engulfed in flames in a quiet residential neighborhood ended up making a sinister discovery once they managed to extinguish the fire — an unidentified woman’s body sitting in the back seat.Police initially received reports of a car on fire in the Andresonville area on the north side of Chicago at about 12:48 a.m. on Friday morning when neighbors say they were awakened by the sounds of loud bangs on the street.“I heard just these sort of banging noises that at first I thought was maybe were gunfire, but I couldn’t tell,” neighbor Ross Compton told ABC News’ Chicago station WLS-TV.The sounds were the tires exploding under the pressure from the extreme heat.“[I] heard some booms, yeah, that woke us up, so, before even the fire department got here,” said neighbor Angie Little who also managed to get video of the fire. “I live in the house right across the street, so from our second story window it’s just right in front of us is the huge fire.”“I see my entire living room was bright orange and I see this car completely in flames,” said another neighbor named Rob Boettcher.Authorities were able to eventually get the enormous fire under control but then made the grisly discovery of the unidentified woman’s scorched remains in the backseat of the silver Nissan sedan with California plates which were traced to the San Diego area.“It is scary. It is just hard to believe that a car is on fire and somebody was found inside,” said Little.One neighbor told WLS-TV that they noticed the car parked on the street with just a blanket in the front seat perhaps as far back as October.Investigators are now canvassing the neighborhood for clues and any new information from witnesses who could give them insight as to who may have driven the car and why the vehicle ended up more than 2,000 miles away.“It’s pretty shocking that something like that would happen on this street. It’s such a small street and there is really not much traffic at night so I don’t know when that car showed up,” said neighbor Joe Smith.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
MattGush/iStock(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) — Twenty-two people have been killed after devastating tornadoes ripped through Nashville and other areas of Tennessee early Tuesday, flattening homes, tossing airplanes and downing powerlines, according to the Tennessee Department of Health.— The tornado in Nashville was just one of three to hit Tennessee overnight. Sixteen have died in Putnam County, Tennessee, officials said. Fatalities were also reported in Wilson, Davidson and Benton Counties.— Winds reached at least 155 mph — EF-3 tornado level — in Mount Juliet and Donelson.— A state of emergency has been declared in Tennessee.— Two of those killed were Michael Dolfini, 36, and Albree Sexton, 33, according to Nashville police.— At least 48 buildings collapsed, authorities said.— Across three counties, about 73,000 are without power, state officials said.— Some Super Tuesday polling stations have been impacted, officials said. Alternative locations will be offered for voters. Tennessee Secretary of State Tre Hargett said residents can call the Division of Elections toll-free at 1-877-850-4959.Nashville resident James Duncan said sirens started in the middle of the night before “howling” winds moved in.“Things started hitting the window, and my girlfriend and I shot out of bed and darted for the bathroom. We could hear objects slamming against the building … it was terrifying,” Duncan told ABC News. “They say tornadoes sound like a train … they were not lying. The feeling in my head from the pressure was insane. I’ve never felt anything like it. We were shaking.”“Then the power cut out and the noise started to fade,” he continued, but he smelled a gas leak and first responders quickly evacuated the apartment to investigate the suspected leak.“Downed powerlines were everywhere,” Duncan added. “We had to walk roughly a mile through the debris and wreckage ’til we could get to a zone where a friend could pick us up. I was trying to reach out to friends in the area to see if they were OK. It was chaos. It felt like we were in a bad dream.”Jeremy Vaughn said he spotted “the funnel cloud” and heard what sounded like a train.He told ABC News he ran down to the first floor of his apartment building, where he huddled with his neighbors, who “were crying and screaming — we didn’t know what was going on.”Outside, Vaughn added, it “looked like a war zone,” with the apartment building’s roof on the ground, the street littered with insulation and pieces of wood.In hard-hit Mt. Juliet, 7-year-old Brock Maxwell was rescued by Mt. Juliet Fire chief Jamie Luffman in the aftermath of the twister.Brock’s family took video of the moment Luffman carried him to safety across live wires in the middle of the night.The twisters left planes decimated at the John C. Tune Airport in West Nashville. No one there was injured and crews from Nashville International Airport will help rebuild, said Doug Kreulen, Nashville International Airport president and CEO.President Donald Trump in a tweet pledged the federal government’s support. Trump said he will travel to Tennessee on Friday.Nashville Mayor John Cooper urged residents to avoid driving Tuesday to help the recovery efforts move more quickly.All metropolitan Nashville schools are closed Tuesday.The mayor posted photos of himself assessing the severe damaging at one Nashville elementary school.Nashville is the capital of country music and stars have spoken out in the wake of the destruction.Country music singer Maren Morris tweeted that “the tornado must have missed our block by an inch.”“I am so depleted looking at the damage that has happened to our beautiful city. There are so many people in the streets helping already, though,” she said. “Thinking of those who lost their loved ones + homes.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.
