Twitter list: South African media sources

Submitted by Rick Eyre on June 27 2013, 8:05 am

My Twitter list of media sources that I track for news about South Africa.

The direct link to this on the web is https://twitter.com/rickeyre/media-southafrica although I understand this is hard to pick up on some Twitter apps.

Note that I have included the official Twitter feed of President Jacob Zuma's office in this list.

(This was originally posted in June 2013 when Nelson Mandela was gravely ill in hospital. I have updated in on 6 December 2013 following news of his passing.)

A world cricket committee: The MCC's own think tank

The Marylebone Cricket Club, the one and only MCC to those not living in Melbourne or working for Microsoft, has come a long way in the past couple of decades.

We know that wrestling, modern pentathlon, canoeing, taekwondo and hockey were the five sports shortlisted for the ballot to be excluded from the "core" sports. Once the field of five was announced, each sport should have been given time (14, 30, 60 days?) to prepare a submission to the IOC to argue why they should be retained as a core Olympic sport. Of course, no such right was given to them.
