3. South Africa: Bonang Matheba calls out Mbalula over N2 Pongola crash

Media personality Bonang Matheba has joined many online slamming transport minister Fikile Mbalula for his “tone deaf” tweet about landing in Qatar instead of Pongola in KwaZulu-Natal. At least 21 people died, including 19 children when a truck crashed into a bakkie transporting pupils on the N2 between Pongola and Itshelejuba on Friday. On Sunday, Mbalula announced he had landed in Qatar.

According to the transport minister, the trip was to meet Qatar minister of transport Jassim bin Saif Al Sulaiti to “deliberate on areas of mutual co-operation in the transport sector.” Bonang said Fikile should have canceled his trip because the Pongola community needed him. “Tone deaf. All of you. You should’ve cancelled this trip. The community of Pongola needs you,” she said.

4. Nigeria makes biggest ever cocaine seizure

The Nigerian drug enforcement agency says it has made what appears to be the biggest seizure of cocaine in the country’s history.

The drugs were stored in 10 travel bags and 13 drums, said the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).

Four Nigerian men aged 69, 65, and two 53-year-olds were arrested in different parts of Lagos. A foreign national was also detailed, in what the agency said was a “well coordinated and intelligence-led operation” conducted over two days. NDLEA says the men were planning to sell the drugs to buyers in Europe, Asia, and other parts of the world.
