Political and General News from South Africa * Best ZA community *

This is the right forum to talk about politics, culture, sports and whatever else there is to praise, admire or deplore in South Africa and her hemisphere. South Africa is the most formidable power on the African continent - treat her with respect.

Talking of which: we are a nice bunch of people, and we like things run smoothly. This community builds on the South African warmth that will greet you every step of the way. When you join, tell us about your connection with South Africa, provide us with info about your neck of the woods and ask away when you have something on your mind. This is primarily - but not exclusively - a political forum. Diverging opinions are welcome, spirited debate is expressively encouraged, as long as we can agree to keep debates civil and even cordial. After all, we all are friends here.
