Ramaphosa says ANC's 'love affair' with the people must return
Jacket wearing, vehicle inspections, love affairs and spring-cleaning were just some of the figurative references Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa used yesterday while discussing problems in the ANC.
Ramaphosa whose presidential bid was boosted when Gauteng ANC Chair Paul Mashatile endorsed him told the party's Western Cape policy conference in Stellenbosch that when leaders go around doing wrong things …in words or in deed…they must know that they are impacting all the people of South Africa.
He was speaking ahead of the ruling party’s national policy conference, which will start at the end of June, and he conceded that the ANC was "going through a difficult time".
DA says Public Protector must release Gupta reports
The DA has called on Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane to release four reports involving the Gupta family today “in the interest of transparency and the South African public”.
Mkhwebane gave very little away when she announced she would hold a media briefing at her office this morning “to release formal investigation reports”.
The Sunday Times reported that she had sat on at least four separate investigative reports involving the Gupta family since she took up office eight months ago.
Companies Tribunal to hear case on SAA chair Dudu Myeni
The Companies Tribunal is today set to hold a hearing on whether Dudu Myeni acted in a delinquent manner in her capacity as director of the South African Airways board.
In March, the Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse and the SAA Pilots Association filed an application at the North Gauteng High Court over Myeni.
Outa portfolio director for transport Ben Theron said at the time that such an order being granted would have prevented Myeni from being appointed as a director or executive of any organisation in South Africa for seven years, Fin24 reported.
Theron said the airline had suffered a loss of R10.5-billion over a period of five years, following Myeni’s appointment in 2012.
