Mabuza says he has been the target of a smear campaign since 2009

Newly-sworn-in Deputy President David "DD" Mabuza has dismissed talk about him being linked to criminal dealings as a smear campaign that started as far back as 2009.

Mabuza was announced as President Cyril Ramaphosa's deputy on Monday night, following a Cabinet reshuffle and was sworn in yesterday.

Mabuza, who was the premier of Mpumalanga since 2009, had been accused of running the province as his own personal fiefdom, including getting rid of political opponents in the province.

 

EFF says no one will lose their house with land expropriation

No one is going to lose his or her house, flat, factory or industry said EFF leader Julius Malema shortly after the House adopted his motion, which opened the way for the Constitution to be amended to allow land expropriation without compensation.

The motion was passed with the support of the ANC, Inkatha Freedom Party, National Freedom Party, United Democratic Movement, Agang, African Independent Congress and African People's Convention.

Parliament's Constitutional Review Committee, which comprises members from both Houses of Parliament, will have to report back to the National Assembly by August 30 about its process and will include public hearings.

CFU director, Ben Gilpin, acknowledged that the union was set up to represent the interest of white farmers since it was founded 100 years ago.

Gilpin said that inequalities had contributed to the rationale for radical land reforms that the southern African country went through in the past two decades.
