White hair

One day a little girl was sitting and watching her mother do the dishes at the kitchen sink. She suddenly noticed that her mother had several strands of white hair sticking out in contrast on her brunette head. 
She looked at her mother and inquisitively asked, "Why are some of your hairs white, Mom?" 
Her mother replied, "Well, every time that you do something wrong and make me cry or unhappy, one of my hairs turns white."

The little girl thought about this revelation for a while and then said, "Momma, how come ALL of grandma's hairs are white?"

President Jacob Zuma has today, on behalf of the Government and the people of South Africa, extended the country’s deepest condolences to the Government and people of the Russian Federation and in particular, to the family of the Russian Ambassador to Turkey Andrey Karlov, following his assassination on Monday evening, 19 December 2016, in Ankara.

President Zuma said: “The South African Government joins the international community in condemning this brutal attack against a diplomat, which is in violation of the 1961 Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations and the 1963 Vienna Convention on Consular Relations. We would like to convey our deepest condolences to H.E President Vladimir Putin, the Government of the Russian Federation, and in particular to the family of the Ambassador Karlov. We also wish those injured in the attack, a speedy and full recovery.”

“Terrorism in any form and from whichever quarter constitutes one of the most serious threats to international peace and security, and any acts of terrorism are criminal, unjustifiable and cannot be condoned.” To this end, South Africa wishes to reiterate its commitment to international initiatives aimed at fighting the scourge of terrorism and violent extremism,” said the President.
