Different political parties have wished South Africans a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
Pope Francis in his Christmas eve mass Sunday urged the world’s 1.3 billion Catholics not to ignore the plight of migrants who are “driven from their land” because of leaders willing to shed “innocent blood”.
President Jacob Zuma says he is happy that he has left the ANC in the hands of capable leaders.
More than 200 people have been killed and scores were missing in the southern Philippines on Sunday after a tropical storm triggered severe flooding and landslides that also wrecked Christmas for tens of thousands of survivors.
