ANC establishes interim structure in KZN after suspending PEC
The ANC has appointed members to an interim structure in KwaZulu-Natal that will oversee the planning of a provincial conference after the results of the last elective congress were nullified by a court decision.
ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule declared in Durban yesterday that in terms of the constitution of the ANC they have suspended the provincial executive committees of KZN and Free State.
Magashule said that the national executive committee of the ANC had agreed that the provinces each had to find a political solution, especially because both provinces had ANC members who took their PECs to court.
Day Zero now April 12 for Cape Town
Day Zero in Cape Town has been brought forward by nine days to April 12 due to a drop in dam levels, City of Cape Town Deputy Mayor Ian Neilson said yesterday.
Neilson urged all those who are not yet part of the massive water-saving efforts to rally to beat back Day Zero.
Day Zero marks the day when there will be no water left for the city's taps due to the drought.
DA leader Mmusi Maimane is expected to brief the media today on what is "really happening" regarding the water crisis in Cape Town during a visit to Athlone.
Justice department to release terms of reference for State capture inquiry
The Department of Justice, and not the Presidency, will release the terms of reference for the much-awaited commission of inquiry into State capture, the Presidency said yesterday.
However, the Presidency did not say when, but stated it would be "soon".
Presidency spokesperson Bongani Ngqulunga told News24 that the terms of reference for the commission of inquiry into State capture chaired by Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo will be released by the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development as soon as they have been finalised.
President Jacob Zuma has faced public criticism for delaying the start of the inquiry by not releasing the terms of reference for the commission.
