The antioxidant-rich Rooibos tea is best-known for its health benefits, but according to South Africa’s top gardening gurus, it’s also a must for every garden.

Margaret Roberts, a prominent figure in the world of gardening and natural health has been using Rooibos for composting ever since she can remember.  She says Rooibos makes a fantastic natural fertilizer as it contains nutrients and trace minerals beneficial to plant growth.

“Instead of throwing away your used Rooibos tea leaves or bags, use it along with other vegetable and fruit peelings to make a balanced compost mix. Our thriving Herbal Centre near Hartbeespoort dam keeps compost heaps going in much the same way with Rooibos tea being among the critical compostable materials. We use it on all our vegetables and fruits in the huge Herbal Centre gardens that supply our restaurant, and the produce is of excellent quality,” she says. Continue reading

This from rnews.co.za:

The Presidency has remained mum on weekend media reports that “senior African National Congress (ANC) members” are working on an alleged bold plan to oust President Jacob Zuma after the local government elections on August third.

According to the Sunday Times, the officials, some based at the ANC’s Luthuli House headquarters, have been discussing details and communicating with party branches across the country opposed to Zuma, to remove him after the elections.

This involved easing the imminent calls for Zuma to leave in favour of ramping up pressure only after the elections had taken place, as some have feared that his early removal could have a negative impact come voting time.

“We need to buy time and act only after the elections. We are giving [Zuma] a long rope to hang himself,” he said,” one official allegedly told the paper at the launch of the party’s election manifesto in Port Elizabeth on Saturday.

Addressing the media after conducting a walkabout of the Greenacres Shopping Centre a day before, Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa said the party remains confidant it would retake control of the Metro after the elections, as only positive feedback from residents had been heard during visits in and around the area.

Johannesburg – Allan Gray has reportedly appointed former finance minister Nhlanhla Nene to its board.

According to a Bloomberg report, the investment company has hired Nene, who was unceremoniously fired by President Jacob Zuma last December, as a non-executive director of money management.

Read: Nene joins the private sector

Nene was fired and replaced by little known David (Des) van Rooyen briefly last year before Zuma made a u-turn and put Pravin Gordhan back as head of SA’s finances.

At the time, Zuma said Nene would be South Africa’s nominee to the Brics Bank.

Last week, Nene told eNCA he had taken up a job in a private company.

According to the interview conducted from his home in Kranskop, KwaZulu-Natal, Nene said he would soon be ending his “garden leave” and joining the private sector.
