The DA yesterday welcomed the signing of the services agreement between the South African Social Security Agency and the South Africa Post Office to facilitate implementation of a new social grants payment system from April 1, 2018, and called for the agreement to be tabled in parliament.

DA spokesperson Bridget Masango said it was very encouraging that the proposed hybrid model will also involve the use of payment platforms incorporating banks, commercial retailers, and small businesses.

Masango said Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini’s attempts to "stonewall" the negotiations between Sapo and Sassa had yet again exposed her inability to effectively lead the social development department.

 

Ace Magashule says don't be afraid of white people making noise

Attacks on the media and white monopoly capital formed part of the political report delivered by ANC Free State chairperson Ace Magashule at the weekend.

He gave his address before delegates during the Free State's controversial provincial congress, which had been postponed at least four times throughout the year.

The Free State conference, which continues today, will seek to elect new leadership for the province with Magashule expected to be appointed chairperson of the province again.

A report states that Mugabe 'was leasing out land to whites'

Former Zimbabwe president Robert Mugabe has been leasing out some of his family’s farm land to white businessmen – even though he threatened others for doing the same while he was in office, a private newspaper reported at the weekend.

As recently as late October, Mugabe said black owners who invited whites back to rent and work seized fields would lose their farms.

But the Zimbabwe Independent reports that the former first family was leasing out part of Mazowe Citrus Estate to a company in which some of the main shareholders were white.
