Ramaphosa to mull Public Protector finding on Gigaba


Government summit on femicide gets under way

And, Motsoaledi says National Health Insurance is about equality, not votes


President Cyril Ramaphosa will study Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane's report recommending disciplinary action against Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba before announcing what steps he will take.

On Wednesday, Mkhwebane announced that her investigation found that Gigaba violated the Constitution, the Executive Ethics Code and the Code of Ethical Conduct and Disclosure of Members Interests for Assembly and Permanent Council members.

This followed a complaint laid with her office by Democratic Alliance chief whip John Steenhuisen in February. It was over a court judgment against Gigaba over permission for Fireblade Aviation to operate a private terminal at OR Tambo International Airport.


More than 1 000 delegates are gathered in Pretoria, today to tackle the scourge of violence meted against South Africa's women and girls.

The summit is convened by the government following a series of marches against gender-based violence by formations such as the 100 Men March and #TotalShutdown

Delegates will come up with a roadmap to prevent violence against women, look into existing laws and policies, review response and support systems and come up with strategies to raise awareness in communities.


Government is not trying to solicit votes through the implementation of the National Health Insurance, Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi has said.

In June government gazetted the NHI bill as well as the Medical Schemes Amendment Bill for public comment.

NHI is a proposed state-run health financing system that aims to pool funds to provide access to quality health services for all South Africans regardless of their economic status.

The minister added that, in his opinion, 90% of South Africa's healthcare system is designed for "well-to-do" people, and not poor people.
