first_imgSANTA CLARA — Nick Bosa’s lingering pain in his right ankle kept him out of the 49ers practice Wednesday at Youngstown State, and it’s a sign his month-long injury could plague him throughout a highly anticipated rookie season.“High-ankle sprains linger for a long time,” coach Kyle Shanahan said. “When you get into games, usually you do stuff again and hopefully you can recover by Sunday.”Shanahan said Bosa’s original Aug. 7 injury is a “little different” from the one that running back Matt …last_img read more

Mandela mourns Nthato Motlana

first_imgThe Committee of Ten was among the organisations banned by the apartheid government on 19 October 1977 on what became known as “Black Wednesday”. Motlana was also the chairperson of the Soweto Committee of Ten which was formed to run Soweto’s affairs after the collapse of the Soweto Urban Bantu Council. The award honoured him as one of the “few individuals who paved the way for black businesspeople who play in the black economic empowerment space today.” Former president Nelson Mandela has sent condolences to the family of Dr Nthato Motlana, a leading businessman, close friend and physician of the Mandela family and stalwart of South Africa’s liberation struggle, who died on Sunday night after a long battle with cancer. Motlana was last year awarded the Financial Mail’s Little Black Book Lifetime Achiever Award in “recognition of his outstanding achievements in the business world and his community involvement.” “It was the first time that the African National Congress (ANC) and the South African Indian Congress had campaigned together,” the Mandela Foundation said. “They were sentenced to nine months in jail with hard labour suspended for two years. On 14 March this year, Motlana joined a group of former activists at a reunion with Mandela at the Nelson Mandela Foundation in Johannesburg. They were the surviving accused with Mandela in three major trials – the 1952 Defiance Campaign Trial, the 1956-61 Treason Trial, and the 1963-64 Rivonia Trial.center_img Source: BuaNews “A leading member of the Soweto community and vice-chair of the Black Parents’ Association during the Student Uprising in 1976, the late Motlana was detained after the uprising.” “His unfailing support for our family during the prison years is something we will never forget. We will miss him. And our country will miss him. His contributions in such a variety of fields made him a patriot of special quality. 2 December 2008 “The loss of our old comrade and friend, Nthato Motlana, is a hard blow,” Mandela said in a statement on Monday. “We have travelled a long road together, through many decades of the struggle against apartheid and the years of building democracy. He was one of the accused, with Mandela and 18 others, in the 1952 Defiance Campaign Trial. All the accused were convicted for their role in a campaign of peaceful protests against apartheid laws.last_img read more

Marikana anniversary ‘time to reflect’

first_img15 August 2013 President Jacob Zuma has called on South Africans to use the anniversary of the Marikana tragedy as a time for reflection and prayer. Friday will mark a year since the tragic incidents that claimed the lives of 44 people in Marikana, near Rustenburg in North West province. “I would like to call upon all South Africans to treat the 16th of August as a day of prayer and reflection. We must pray for the families of all who lost their lives in Marikana, before and after the 16th of August. We must all resolve to do everything possible to prevent a repeat of similar incidents,” Zuma said in a statement on Thursday. The event, Zuma said, had shocked the whole country, causing “untold pain”. “It was a tragic and sad loss of life. We pulled through because we united and ensured that the tragedy did not derail the country and efforts of nation building and reconstruction.” He called on the nation not to pre-empt the findings of the Judicial Commission of Inquiry, led by Judge Ian Farlam, which is looking into the incident. Zuma called on the government, labour and business to work together to achieve peace and stability in the mining sector, which remains a major source of economic growth and employment in the country, especially during difficult global economic times. The government, organised labour and organised business have committed to work together to restore peace and stability in the mines. A framework agreement signed by the parties in July provides the basis for cooperation to stabilise the sector and set it on a sustainable footing. Cautioning against further violence, Zuma said the government would act decisively to enforce the law during protests, reiterating that labour relations disputes and negotiations should be conducted in line with the Labour Relations Act. “Both workers and employers must ensure that all matters pertaining to labour relations, including union recognition agreements, verification of membership and wage negotiations, are conducted within the Labour Relations Act, which lays the primary foundation for labour relations in South Africa. “Government will act decisively to enforce the rule of law, maintain peace during strikes and other protests relating to labour disputes and ensure protection of life, property and the advancement of the rights of all.” The President said the newly established Mine Crime Combating Forum would ensure that the law enforcement agencies acted fairly and impartially while working together with the companies, trade unions and communities. “Workers and managers must go to work without fear that anyone would harm them,” Zuma said. “Workers must be free to exercise their constitutional right to join any trade union of their choice, to declare disputes, to strike and to engage in any form of peaceful protest.” Source: SAnews.gov.zalast_img read more
