CAPE TOWN – Johannesburg’s 223 metre Carlton Centre is in danger of losing its title as the tallest building in Africa.

This is if all goes according to schedule in the construction of “The Pinnacle” twin glass-facade towers that will rise above Nairobi, Kenya.

The buildings are set for completion by December 2019.

Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta recently laid the foundation stone ahead of the mammoth construction project of the 300 meters tall building.

The towers will house a 255-room Hilton Hotel, along with elite residences, business and leisure facilities, and a helipad on the roof of the taller tower.

CAPE TOWN – An Athlone man and his three-year-old granddaughter are recovering in hospital after they were attacked by dogs.

The two dogs mauled Aubrey and little Emma Murphy at the family’s home on Tuesday.

Aubrey was at home with his three-year-old twin granddaughters.

It’s believed he heard a noise coming from his backyard and went outside to inspect.

Family member Cliff Augustyn explains what happened next.

“Emma ran ahead of him. I believe the two dogs attacked Emma first and then her grandfather covered Emma with his body. That’s when the dogs attacked him.”

The three-year-old girl was rushed to hospital.

Paramedics attended to her grandfather on the scene, and he was later transported to a medical facility.

Both relatives have since undergone surgery and are in a stable condition.

Kim Kardashian Responds to Blackface Accusations

Kim Kardashian is speaking out after she was accused of putting on blackface for her recent Kim Kardashian Beauty ad.

The 36-year-old reality star says that she was “really tan” when she shot the image, seen below.

“I would obviously never want to offend anyone,” Kim said in a new interview with The New York Times. “I was really tan when we shot the images, and it might be that the contrast was off. But I showed the image to many people, to many in the business. No one brought that to our attention. No one mentioned it.”

“Of course, I have the utmost respect for why people might feel the way they did. But we made the necessary changes to that photo and the rest of the photos. We saw the problem, and we adapted and changed right away. Definitely I have learned from it,” Kim added.
