October 19 1977 - South Africa’s Apartheid government bans several local newspapers for publishing news articles about the beating and murder of Steve Biko at the hands of the police… the ANC protested this violently.
November 22 2011 - South Africa’s ANC government passes the Protection of Information Bill allowing the incarceration (for up to 25 years) and banning of any journalist or entity that makes public information about the corrupt nature or actions of members of government.

I have just completed my Vodafone World of Difference application.
It’s an amazing project that they are running which gives 500 people the chance to volunteer their time to a charity of their choice and get paid for it.
My chosen project is a youth led mental health project called Right Here.
I have volunteered my time to them since March but have never been able to commit as much time and energy as I have wanted because of work and life commitments.
This would be a great opportunity for me to focus my time on a project that I love.
I will find out by 20th January if I have been successful for the shortlist.
P.M.A until then :)
