Dlamini says 'patriarchy' is the reason MPs don't buy her Sassa story

Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini says "patriarchy" is the reason MPs don't believe her side of the story in the deadlock to sign a deal with the South African Post Office.

Dlamini, Sapo CEO Mark Barnes, the South African Social Security Agency and other role players appeared before a joint meeting in Parliament yesterday to discuss the collapsing deal.

The minister revealed in the meeting that an inter-government deal had still not been signed between the two entities, despite 13 interactions arguing for and against an agreement since July.

 

Zuma will establish inquiry into State capture if instructed by the court

President Jacob Zuma has placed on "record" that he will establish a commission of inquiry into State capture within a month if ordered by a court.

It comes as Zuma was seeking an order by the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria to have former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela's remedial actions, contained in her State of Capture report, reviewed and set aside.

This resulted in Judge President Dunstan Mlambo ordering all parties to file supplementary heads of argument explaining how the withdrawal would impact on the review application.

 

United Behind activists expected to march demanding Zuma's arrest

Activists from #UnitedBehind are today expected to march from Central Methodist Mission in Greenmarket Square in Cape Town to an undisclosed location to demand the arrest of President Jacob Zuma.

An organiser with the movement, Bruce Baigrie, said the organisation, like other political parties and civil organisations, had been calling for Zuma to step down for some time.

Baigrie said the most recent revelations of Zuma being bankrolled by Roy Moodley and his corrupt front companies leave them no choice but to escalate their call to direct action.

City of Johannesburg Mayor Herman Mashaba has welcomed African Diaspora Forum's decision to join him in taking legal action against the Department of Home Affairs in the coming weeks.
