In a series of pieces, Manveen Rana has been investigating the relationship between political power in South Africa, a London-based PR firm, and one of the country's richest families.

The British PR firm's role in South African politics - Part 3

8/3/2017
More
Until recently, South Africa was hailed as one of the so-called BRICS - the developing economies, growing at such a rate of knots, they were soon to join the economic premier league. Not anymore. Next week, President Jacob Zuma faces a vote of no confidence, fuelled by accusations of financial corruption on a gargantuan scale. One of the principal businesses to have been roped into the scandals are the Gupta brothers, a family whose tentacles extend from media-ownership to railways,...

More
It is 23 years since the birth of South Africa's Rainbow Nation and it stands at a watershed. Its President, Jacob Zuma, is facing a vote of no confidence in parliament next week, which could see him kicked out of office in a country increasingly angry at his conspicuous enrichment, while the poorest get poorer. At issue is the President's relationship with one of South Africa's richest families, the Gupta brothers. In the second of her four part investigative series, Manveen Rana, looks...

The British PR firm’s role in South African politics

The PR firm Bell Pottinger has often courted controversy with its choice of clients; they represented the Paralympian Oscar Pistorius after he was charged with murder, Asma al-Assad the Syrian first lady, and the Pinochet Foundation, whilst the former Chilean dictator was being detained in Britain. But the latest crisis the company faces could be the most challenging yet - they stand charged of fomenting racial tensions in the tinderbox of post-apartheid South Africa. In his first...

How close are we to effectively treating Alzheimer's?

6/27/2017
More
Despite decades of research, 99% of clinical trials on new drugs for Alzheimer's disease have failed, meaning there is still no cure. But scientists believe it is not the drugs which do not work, it is the trials. To test the theory, work is about to begin on the world's biggest and most in-depth study to find the earliest signs of Alzheimer's in people. Scientists believe that if the drugs were used earlier, before the clinical symptoms of memory loss, they could slow the onset of the...

Sir John Major: 'Dubious' about deal with the DUP

6/13/2017
More
Sir John Major has said he is "wary" and "dubious" about Theresa May striking a deal with the DUP to give her government a majority. The former Conservative prime minister, who was one of the architects of the peace process in Northern Ireland, told the World at One the peace process in Northern Ireland was "fragile" and "under stress" and said there was a danger the UK government wouldn't be seen as impartial if it was "locked into a parliamentary deal at Westminster with one of the...

Homosexuality: 'Tough to find role models''

4/13/2017
More
It is 50 years since the law that decriminalised homosexuality was passed. John Browne, who was the chief executive of the energy company BP between 1995 and 2007, kept his sexuality secret for the first 50 years of his life. After being outed by the Daily Mail in 2007 he became the first person, leading a major publicly-traded company, to acknowledge that he is gay. But he later stepped down after revelations about his homosexual affair. In 2014 he published The Glass Closet: Why Coming...

Homosexuality: 'Society was in denial'

It's been 50 years since the Sexual Offences Act 1967 was passed in England and Wales. The act was to amend the law and decriminalise homosexual acts in private between two men. In a time where public opinion of homosexuality was viewed negatively and MP's "were afraid of voting it in parliament for fear it would lose their seats,” David Owen supported the bill in a speech addressing the House of Commons on December 19th 1966. The former Labour MP tells our reporter Becky Milligan that as...

Life as a homosexual

To mark 50 years since the Sexual Offences Act in 1967 decriminalised private homosexual acts, Becky Milligan spoke to George Montague. Like many homosexual men of his generation, George got married, had children and kept his gay relationships secret. In 1974 he was convicted of gross indecency with a man - the law was repealed in 2004. The 93-year-old, who has fought for an apology for his conviction, finally received one from the Home Office.
