South African motorists will be paying 74 cents more per litre of petrol and between 91 and 93 cents more per litre of diesel from Wednesday.

The fuel price announcement for March was made by Minister of Energy, Jeff Radebe, today.

He said the price hikes were mainly due to an increase in international crude oil prices. 

 

Ramaphosa’s reprimand of Cele regarding KwaZulu-Natal whistleblowers ‘in abeyance’

President Cyril Ramaphosa has not yet reprimanded Police Minister Bheki Cele, as directed by the public protector, for failing to provide protection to two whistleblowers in KwaZulu-Natal who were in danger of “assassination. 

Mkhwebane last week called a press conference at which she “named and shamed” various government departments and those who had “defied” the remedial action set out in her reports.

Ramaphosa’s spokesperson Khusela Diko said the presidency has been diligent in the implementation of remedial action of the public protection.

Diko said the presidency has requested that the implementation of remedial action be held in abeyance until the courts have ruled on the matter.

 

ANC denies meeting with SABC editors was 'bullying'

The ANC says it is concerned about a report alleging that it is bullying the embattled South African Broadcasting Corporation.

This, after the City Press reported yesterday that the party’s head of elections, Fikile Mbalula, met with the most senior editors of the public broadcaster, including group executive of news Phathiswa Magopeni on Friday, where he is said to have accused the newsroom of a "clampdown" against reportage of ANC election activities.

 He denied the allegations and said the meeting was meant to be a platform where perspectives were shared. Mbalula added that the meeting was necessary following President Cyril Ramaphosa's announcement of the May 8 election day.

That’s a roundup of news making headlines today
