  • Zuma's nine-point plan aims to make ANC members rich: Zille

    In her weekly newsletter posted on the Democratic Alliance's website, she said the plan Zuma presented on Thursday disguised his real intentions, which would benefit his network of loyal cadres. "It is an insider enrichment scheme disguised beneath the mantle of the so-called 'developmental state', a word which in ANC-speak, means precisely the opposite of what the English language intended it to," Zille said. Zuma's nine-point plan included resolving the energy crisis, adding value to the country's mineral wealth, and encouraging private sector investment. Focusing on Zuma's call for the energy crisis to be resolved, Zille said this was what South Africa needed, but the African National Congress was not putting any plan into action.

  • It's a cruel world out there: What will be Obama foreign policy legacy? | Daily Maverick

    Earlier this week, the writer reviewed US President Barack Obama’s week of victories, largely in domestic politics. Suddenly, from the becoming the irrelevant political vanishing act Obama was held to be, by virtue of his congressional victory on gaining TransPacific Trade Pact fast track negotiating authority, two Supreme Court decisions bolstering his political stance and securing the future of Obamacare, and that astonishing podium performance in his eulogy in Charleston, South Carolina after the tragedy there, Obama has, miraculously, been transformed into – at least temporarily – something of a sudden and mighty political colossus and a pacesetter. Most US presidents, if they gain a second four-year term, eventually head off to seek victories (or at least seeming wins) in foreign policy. The troubles of domestic politics and the usual squabbling with an independent Congress that detects weakness in a president and that dread disease of ‘lameduckness’ has usually meant a chief executive seeks solace in negotiating with other international figures, rather than Congress.
