Public hearings on land issue begin
South Africans are encouraged to participate in the public hearings on land reform, which get under way tomorrow.
A delegation of the Joint Constitutional Review Committee will kick off the hearings in the Northern Cape before making its way across the country, to all nine provinces.
The delegation will hold at least three meetings in each province to gather responses from South Africans into the possible amendment of Section 25 of the Constitution, which deals with expropriation of land without compensation. Visit Polity.org.za to find out where in your province the hearings will be taking place.
Ramaphosa promises ANC will offer best policies for the country
President Cyril Ramaphosa has promised to start his first term of administration after next year's general elections with the best policies.
Ramaphosa told delegates at the ANC Limpopo provincial elective conference yesterday that he was gearing towards a workshop to formulate an election manifesto to propose such policies.
Ramaphosa, who ascended to the Union Buildings after former president Jacob Zuma was forced to resign, implored delegates to get down to winning the trust of the masses as the party has suffered deficits in the past years.
Zimbabwe opposition leader Nelson Chamisa fears poll violence
Opposition leader Nelson Chamisa says his Movement for Democratic Change and its coalition partners feel more susceptible to violence after a bomb attack on a Zanu-PF party rally narrowly failed to kill President Emmerson Mnangagwa.
Chamisa told a news agency that although Zimbabwe was more stable than a decade ago, Saturday's attack made him expectant of more tension directed at the opposition ahead of next month's elections.
Vice President Constantino Chiwenga, whose wife Mary was among those injured in the grenade attack, has condemned it as a "terrorist act" and vowed that those responsible will be found.
