CHIEF JUSTICE SAYS IT IS TIME FOR ETHICAL LEADERSHIP: Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng says South Africa needs ethical leadership. Mogoeng - who delivered the seminal Constitutional Court ruling on the Nkandla matter - addressed the Serious Social Investing Conference in Gauteng on Monday. The court found President Jacob Zuma failed to uphold, defend and respect the Constitution by ignoring the Public Protector's remedial action. Mogoeng says ethical leadership leaves no room for corruption or the manipulation of politicians. "Unethical leadership made South Africa look like it belongs to only some who live in it. We need ethical leadership. It about undertaking to heal the divisions of our past," he says. Silindelo Masikane reports.

Paulse who played for the national squad between 1999 and 2007 says coaches who became successful were really "hard-core". "Allister Coetzee can be a bit of a nice guy. You need to sometimes put your foot down with players who have strong personalities," Paulse told the Complimentary Breakfast.
