South Africa’s cumulative number of confirmed Covid-19 cases is 159 333 with 8 124 new cases reported.

Case data shows the Western Cape has the highest number of infections at 64 377, followed by Gauteng with 45 944, the Eastern Cape with 29 340 and KwaZulu-Natal with 10 632. 

A further 92 Covid-19 related deaths were reported - 17 from the Eastern Cape, 28 from Gauteng, 10 from KwaZulu-Natal and 37 from the Western Cape. This brings the total deaths to 2 749.

 

Duarte says Popo Molefe had the power to act against Prasa corruption

ANC deputy secretary general Jessie Duarte said former Prasa board chairperson Popo Molefe, and not the ANC, had the powers to act against corruption at Prasa. 

Duarte said the party would respond to the Zondo commission of inquiry investigating state capture where Molefe alleged the ANC top six ignored widespread corruption at Prasa when he reported it to them in 2015. 

She confirmed that the then ANC top-six led by former president Jacob Zuma was approached by Molefe who raised corruption allegations against implicated former Prasa CEO Lucky Montana and others. 

 

Nigeria to restart domestic flights in easing of coronavirus curbs

Nigeria will resume domestic flights from July 8, the government said, as Africa's most populous country relaxes novel coronavirus restrictions despite mounting cases and deaths.

The airports for the capital Abuja and Lagos will open on July 8, while a handful of others are set to open July 11 and the rest on July 15, the government said.

Nigeria had confirmed more than 25 000 coronavirus cases and almost 600 deaths as of Wednesday, with little sign of the outbreak slowing.
