Today’s latest news and headlines, Friday, 3 June 2022



We’ve got the latest news stories and headlines in South Africa on Friday, 3 June 2022.

Tragedy has once again struck the Gauteng Education fraternity: MEC Panyaza Lesufi’s office says two siblings from Kaalfontein Primary School and their one-year-old sister sadly died after consuming poisoned meat that was meant for rats.

A SA aviator was killed when his aerobatic aircraft crashed during an air show display at Charles Prince Airport in Zimbabwe.

Patients of government clinics can now choose to receive their chronic medication at a convenient South African Post Office branch instead of collecting it from their clinic.

This collection service is available in all provinces, except the Western Cape, at 342 post offices.

A video circulating on social media of a SANPark official almost driving over lions and cubs in the Kruger National park has the public fuming.

In the video shared by Africa Adventures on YouTube, the official can be seen trying to avoid the convoy of tourists during a lion sighting and driving towards the lions, almost running them over. 

President Cyril Ramaphosa has admitted through his office that there was in fact a robbery on his farm in February 2020, as former spy boss Arthur Fraser had claimed – but he says there is no merit to his claim of criminal conduct, which his case is based on.
