Jessica Nkosi's rep: She's an innocent bystander

Cape Town - Local actresses Jessica Nkosi and Phindile Gwala have found themselves at the centre of a social media storm, after a video surfaced of the actress flashing wads of money with the so called "Bling Bandits" online on Friday.

According to News24 the video has become the subject of a police investigation after it was linked to a second video clip, showing bundles of notes, in various denominations, in a suitcase. 

Speaking to The Juice, a representative from Capacity Relationships called Nkosi an "innocent bystander" who was "simply meeting a friend for lunch." 

The official statement goes on to say: "What transpired left Jessica uncomfortable and upset as this is not the company she is used to keeping nor the environment she wishes to associate her personal brand with."

Under the planned Brexit transition deal – agreed by both parties – Brussels “merely have to notify the UK Government” that British firms cannot bid for contracts, in order to protect security, their report says.

    Exclusive - Russian civilians helping Assad use military base back home: witnesses

    The Kremlin says it has nothing to do with Russian civilians fighting in Syria but on three recent occasions groups of men flying in from Damascus headed straight to a defence ministry base in Molkino, Reuters reporters witnessed. Molkino in southwestern Russia is where the Russian 10th Special Forces Brigade is based, according to information on the Kremlin website. The destination of the Russians arriving from Syria provides rare evidence of a covert Russian mission in Syria beyond the air strikes, training of Syrian forces and small numbers of special forces troops acknowledged by Moscow.

    Grenfell: Official fire tests for combustible cladding found "utterly inadequate"

    Building insurers have condemned what they call the "utter inadequacy" of government-backed tests used to certify cladding systems containing combustible plastics. The Association of British Insurers claims to have created a more realistic test which shows fires in real buildings can burn 100C hotter with flames spreading up to four times further than in official tests. According to the FPA, factors "overlooked" in official testing of combustible plastics include test fires not being hot enough and cladding not including gaps and openings.

    Novartis's foray into digital technology intensified on Wednesday as the Swiss drugmaker launched a mobile-phone based app to help collect data from people participating in eye disease studies.

As Chief Executive Vas Narasimhan focuses the Basel-based company on innovative medicines via acquisitions like this month's $8.7 billion takeover of U.S.-based AveXis, he is also plowing resources into digital technology in a bid to boost trial success, save time and cut costs.
