    JOHANNESBURG – Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa says while he doesn’t know the agenda for the African National Congress (ANC)’s next National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting, failed calls that were previously made in the NEC for President Jacob Zuma to step down need to be discussed by the party. Ramaphosa was addressing the Chris Hani memorial lecture in Uitenhage in Port Elizabeth on Sunday. The deputy president used the example of Chris Hani, saying he was a unifier and had no scandals. “We should all try to be Chris Hanis and look at yourself and say do you fit that bill or not and you leave it to the individual. They themselves must be able to reach that conclusion.” He also gave this

  • EFF's bank account frozen after researcher's dismissal

    This after the party failed to pay a former employee who was dismissed from work two years ago but won a case against his dismissal. Advocate Fenya Maabane, the party's former researcher in the Limpopo legislature, was dismissed from work in 2015 on allegations of absenteeism and failure to attend to official duties. Maabane challenged the decision through the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA), which ruled in his favour. His dismissal was found to be unfair "both procedurally and substantively". The party was given until February 2016 to settle the amount but failed to do so, so Maabane took the matter to the Labour Court. Malema said he was not aware of the case when

  • Zimbabwe: Here's Why Zimbabwe Won't Adopt the Rand

    It doesn't matter how much sense it makes to ordinary Zimbabweans: Zimbabwe will not formally adopt the rand, the central bank governor says. John Mangudya has told the state-controlled Sunday Mail that he's ruling out "rand adoption". Mangudya says the rand has been part of the multi-currency basket since 2009 (other currencies supposed to be accepted in major supermarkets include British pounds, Botswana pula and Chinese yuan). The reason why the rand stopped being welcome in Zimbabwe - certainly in the capital, perhaps less in Bulawayo - was two-fold: the rand lost value so there were quarrels over the exchange rate of the day and Zimbabwe brought in bond coins, which meant there was much less need for rand coins as change.

    That South Africa is on the cusp of political change many honest people can see. What most observers refuse to imagine is what our new politics will look like. Making political predictions is a risky business. But the fear of making wrong predictions is both an act of cowardice and a bluntness of the imagination. Analysts don't want to eat their hats when their predictions turn out to be false. Unlike others, this columnist does not have a chicken heart. He is prepared to tell you what he thinks will happen.
