President Cyril Ramaphosa does not believe that his predecessor Jacob Zuma will ever leave the ANC.

Ramaphosa was speaking to France24 television network on the sidelines of the African Union Assembly of heads of State in Mauritania.

Ramaphosa said he had complete faith and confidence that president Zuma will remain a member of the ANC until the last day of his life in this world.

Zuma has been linked to the formation of a new political party based in his home province of KwaZulu-Natal.

He has personally dismissed the reports.
 

Lindiwe Silulu says SA might flip-flop on ICC decision

International relations minister Lindiwe Sisulu has hinted that South Africa might yet flip-flop on a decision by the governing party that the country should withdraw from the International Criminal Court.

Speaking at a briefing at the Department of International Relations yesterday, Sisulu said the decision to leave the ICC was taken "under the previous administration", led by former president Jacob Zuma

She said a final decision on the matter has not yet been taken.



Sassa promises portfolio committee that technical glitches will be resolved by tomorrow

Technical glitches are responsible for the inability of about 700 000 of the 10.8-million South African Social Security Agency beneficiaries to access their cash.

However, the issues are expected to be resolved within the next three days, the agency's executive manager of grants administration Dianne Dunkerley told the Portfolio Committee on Social Development yesterday.

Dunkerley said only those with the new Sassa cards had been affected.

Acting Sassa CEO Abraham Mahlangu, who was meant to report back to the committee on the challenges the agency was facing, did not attend the meeting as he dealt with the current situation, but reported via telecom that its newly-acquired IGS system had been "experiencing strain".
