Celebrity chef and TV personality Siba Mtongana continues to rock the culinary world. As is the case with her international TV show, ‘Siba’s Table’, her recently released cookbook, My Table, has become an instant hit.
My Table has taken South Africa by storm and has already made history as the best-selling cookbook ever to have been stocked by retail giant, Woolworths SA. Thus far it has sold over 33 percent more copies than any other cookbook Woolworths SA has ever carried.
The self-published book, produced by her company, The Siba Co, has about 120 “Sibalicious” recipes for food lovers to try out at home.
Commenting on the extraordinary demand for her cookbook, Siba says: “I’m humbled and grateful for the love and support I’ve received from my home, South Africa. This cookbook has been a long-held dream and putting it together was a labour of love that demanded lots of sacrifice, hard work, innovation, focus and determination. Writing the book was my favourite part of the process.”
Adds Siba: “What’s even more exciting is that many people told me that they were buying a cookbook for the very first time. I’m incredibly glad that I’ve introduced them to a new world of experimentation, flavour, friendship and fun. I couldn’t be happier!”

“Your body has a right over you” Nabi SAW
I’d just like to start off saying I apologise if I’ve made any mistakes and pray Allah forgives me if I have done so. My intention is purely for the education and up liftment of my brothers and sisters. I’ve tried to make the article as clear and concise as I could.
- Hadith pertaining to Exercise
- Fasting and exercise
Prophet Muhammad PBUH, said, “Any action without the remembrance of God is either a diversion or heedlessness excepting four acts: Walking from target to target [during archery practice], training a horse, playing with one’s family, and learning to swim.”[At Tabarani]
So when looking at this hadith, we see The Nabi SAW mention that not being in remembrance of Allah is allowed only during certain activities. When we review these activities we see that all of them include movement or exercise. To me this speaks volumes about our Nabi SAW’s priorities and what he deemed- good for us. It is clear as day that exercise is an extremely important part of life to him and that one’s family should also be included in these activities. Instead of just being sedentary with one’s family, one should be doing activities with them. Continue reading
A group of bus drivers employed by Kidrogen, a MyCiTi vehicle operating company (VOC), this morning embarked on an illegal strike. Neither Kidrogen nor Transport for Cape Town – the City of Cape Town’s transport authority – was informed of the imminent strike that commenced at approximately 05:00 this morning, 26 May 2016.
The bus drivers who are participating in the illegal strike prevented the MyCiTi buses from leaving the depot in Dunoon to commence with the services along the very busy and popular T01 and T04 trunk routes.
As a result, the MyCiTi trunk routes from Dunoon to Table View and Dunoon to Century City were severely disrupted, as were the MyCiTi feeder Routes 213, 214, 215, 216 and 217 in Table View. Routes 260 and 262, serving commuters from Summer Greens and Century Gate, were also affected.
None of the routes mentioned above were operational this morning.
Buses are being added to these routes as and when drivers become available. Continue reading

This from dailymaverick.co.za:
by Ivan Couronne and Veronique Dupont Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump stumped Wednesday in California, the US state with the largest Hispanic population, doubling down on his anti-immigration position but assuring that “Mexican people” will vote for him in November.
The presumptive Republican nominee took the stage in Anaheim, outside Los Angeles, with police on high alert one day after violence marred a Trump rally in the southwestern state of New Mexico, where anti-Trump protesters hurled rocks and police fired smoke grenades in efforts to rein in the chaos.
Dozens of security personnel including police on horseback maintained control in Anaheim, although some skirmishes broke out between Trump opponents and his backers as protesters chanted expletives about the brash billionaire. At least eight people were arrested.
Inside, Trump attacked his likely Democratic general election rival Hillary Clinton and railed against undocumented immigrants stealing US jobs.
But he insisted legal immigrants would vote for him in large numbers, despite polls showing they would overwhelmingly favor Clinton.
“The Mexican people are great, they’re going to vote for me like crazy, the ones that are legally in this country,” Trump said, as a woman waived a “Latinas for Trump” sign behind him.
