South African Communist Party (SACP) first deputy general-secretary Solly Mapaila has appealed to the South African Police Services and government to offer protection to their leader Blade Nzimande and his family.
SACP Secretary General Dr Blade Nzimande says he respects the decision made by the African National Congress (ANC) to exclude him from its National Executive Committee (NEC). The ANC announced its new 80 NEC members last week Thursday at the party’s 54th National Elective Conference, in Johannesburg.
Transport Minister Blade Nzimande along with officials from Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa) have visited the family of two of the victims of the deadly Mountain View train crash in Pretoria West.
Transport Minister Blade Nzimande says the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa must account for the collision between two trains which happened at the Mountain View train station in Pretoria on Tuesday morning.
