ConCourt rules on cabinet reshuffles
18 September 2019, 7:44 PM

The Constitutional Court on Wednesday dismissed an application for leave to appeal a High Court ruling compelling the President to give reasons for hiring and firing Ministers.

Ramaphosa took the matter to the apex court to seek clarity on the powers of the President.

It follows a 2017 High Court ruling, compelling the then President Jacob Zuma to give reasons for his controversial midnight reshuffle.

The tripartite alliance is on rocky ground again,  this time over Finance Minister Tito Mboweni’s economic strategy paper.

It was made public on Tuesday and it didn’t take long for the South African Communist Party (SACP)  and Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) to slam the proposals and call for its withdrawal.

The Communists also claim that the economic plan flouts the African National Congress’s (ANC’) election manifesto.

On Thursday Cosatu railed against Mboweni’s strategy to grow the economy.

South Africans deserve a caring govt: Maimane
4 May 2019, 7:04 AM

The DA will hold its final election rally at Soweto’s Dobsonville Stadium later on Saturday morning.

Party Leader Mmusi Maimane hopes to use the event dubbed ‘Diphetogo Rally’ to get more votes for change in these elections.

Riding on corruption allegations against the African National Congress (ANC), Maimane said the 1994 promise of a better life for all has been lost under the ruling party.

As he wraps up his campaign today, Maimane says he is confident of his dream of building one South Africa for all.
