  • ANC will fix immigration act - Mantashe

    "There is a lot about the [immigration] act that is good," Mantashe told Business Times on Friday. Mantashe was speaking in the wake of a minor public spat between Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba, whose department is responsible for immigration, and his counterpart in tourism, Derek Hanekom. In an interview with Talk Radio 702 on Wednesday, Hanekom broke ranks and talked about the woeful effects the new immigration laws were having. The number of visitors to South Africa is drastically down (in the case of those from China, by 40% year on year), which cuts into tourism revenue (a major contributor to GDP) and puts much-needed jobs at risk.

  • Zuma lashes out at Madonsela - Report

    President Jacob Zuma has reportedly lashed out at Public Protector Thuli Madonsela, accusing her of disrespecting the police minister and undermining Parliament. The Sunday Times is reporting that Madonsela responded to Zuma's criticism of her, drawing attention to what she calls an altered Nkandla report, where Zuma asked Police Minister Nathi Nhleko to determine whether he should repay some of the R246 million spent on the homestead. The paper says in a letter, the president rebukes Madonsela saying he finds her criticism and innuendo unfair and warranted because a police minister is a member of Cabinet.
