DA Cape Town caucus agrees to ask for new De Lille no confidence vote

The DA's Cape Town caucus has resolved to write to its federal executive to ask for permission to table a new motion of no confidence in mayor Patricia de Lille.

Deputy caucus leader JP Smith confirmed to News24 that the caucus met yesterday, and resolved to initiate new proceedings against the embattled mayor.

The DA amended its constitution at its federal congress last weekend to include a "recall clause" for members elected to an executive post, like de Lille.



Ramaphosa team to seek $100-billion investment for South Africa

South African President Cyril Ramaphosa appointed a team of business and finance experts yesterday to hunt the globe for $100-billion in investment to boost the ailing economy.

The team of economic envoys includes two former finance ministers – Trevor Manuel and Pravin Gordhan, who now holds the state firms portfolio – as well as a former top banker.

After winning the leadership of the ruling ANC last year Ramaphosa promised to revive the economy and crackdown on corruption.

Appointments to the team also include economist Trudi Makhaya, who becomes special economic adviser to the president, former Treasury Director General Lungisa Fuzile, ex-Deputy Finance Minister Mcebisi Jonas and former Standard Bank chief executive Jacko Maree.

 

Thandeka Gqubule plans to declassify Stratcom documents to clear her name

Thandeka Gqubule, one of the journalists Winnie Madikizela-Mandela accused of working for Stratcom, said she planned to apply to the High Court for the declassification of documents that would clear her name.

Madikizela-Mandela alluded in a video clip, published on HuffPost SA's website, that Gqubule was an agent of the apartheid government's security branch. The video clip has since been removed.
 

Also making headlines:

AMCU president Joseph Mathunjwa said the victims of the Marikana massacre should not be used as instruments to mend relations between the ANC and the EFF.
