It's youth vs 'old' ahead of the ANC Gauteng conference

The ANC Youth League in Gauteng has thrown down the gauntlet against the province's current leaders, who are endorsing former youth league leaders to take over the reigns ahead of what is expected to be a fiercely-contested party elective conference next month. 

The provincial executive committee has announced its backing of Economic Development MEC Lebogang Maile for the deputy chairperson position and former Emfuleni mayor Jacob Khawe as secretary. Both are former provincial youth league leaders.

Maile will be up against former Johannesburg Mayor Parks Tau and Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi, while Khawe will be running against incumbent Hope Papo.

The battle ahead of the July conference has pitted the youth league against the current provincial leadership.

 

Western Cape could be testing ground for land expropriation without compensation

Deputy Minister of Rural Development and Land Reform Mcebisi Skwatsha says government is considering expropriating land without compensation to assist more than 20 000 farm dwellers facing eviction in the Drakenstein municipality.

Skwatsha visited the homes of several families facing eviction in Simondium on Monday.

He said depending on the attitudes of the farm owners, the department might want to test whether this could be a case to consider expropriation without compensation in the Western Cape.
 

 

Meetings about new political movement linked to Zuma 'going very well'

Although the former president denied that he was leaving the ANC, plans are afoot to test the waters for a new political movement touted to be led by Jacob Zuma.

According to a KZN group at the forefront of the new development, consultation meetings about the formation of this movement "are going very well".

Mazibuyele Emasisweni spokesperson Reggie Ngcobo said yesterday that they had not yet decided whether it will be a political party or not.
 

Also making headlines:

Minister of Health Dr Aaron Motsoaledi has dismissed claims that the public health sector is on the verge of collapse. He did, however, concede that the healthcare system is very distressed.
