South Africa's Deputy President, Cyril Ramaphosa admits to having an extra-marital affair 


Cyril Ramaphosa, South Africa's Deputy President has admitted having an extra-marital affair, but denied reports of multiple affairs. Speaking after allegations about his private life were published in newspapers, he accused political opponents of trying to smear him.



Ramaphosa's private emails were apparently hacked into to prove an affair between him and a medical doctor. The emails reportedly suggest he also had a series of affairs with young women, and had unprotected sex.



The deputy president admitted he had had an affair with a doctor eight years ago, but said the other women named in connection with him were students he and his wife supported to further their education.



Ramaphosa had tried to block publication of the allegations in the courts, arguing that his private affairs were not in the public interest. He also said he would ask the country's inspector general of intelligence to investigate the hacking of his emails. "I had a relationship with only one person and it ended. I dealt with it with my wife," Ramaphosa told South Africa's Sunday Times.



"I have to be prevented at all costs from ascending to the position of president of the ANC. Some have even said it will be over their dead bodies. I have not committed any crimes, I have not stolen any money, I have not looted state resources. But I am being targeted and smeared" he said.



He and Jacob Zuma's ex-wife Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma are the front runners to replace Mr Zuma when he steps down as ANC president in December. The leader of the ANC automatically becomes the party's candidate for president of the country.

Scary News About Your Cellphone

The war rages on about the safety of cell phones.  One side argues there’s either nothing to fear, while the other warns that your phone is causes grave harm when it comes into close contact with your body. Citing the views of other experts Dr Joseph Mercola tries to show where the real truth lies.

The year 2014 marked the first time in history that there were officially more mobile devices than people in the world – approximately 7.2 billion.

Although significantly lower, the number of cell phone users is forecast to reach 4.77 billion by the year 2017.

That’s a lot of cell phones and cell phone users. But what’s even more fascinating about all these mobile devices is the behaviour that surrounds them: The average cellphone owner checks their phone 110 times a day, or about nine times each hour; and 46 percent of smartphone owners say “they couldn’t live without” their phones
