ActionSA joins AfriForum in legal action against Covid-19 regulations

ActionSA is seeking leave to join legal action as a friend of the court in a case instituted by DearSA and AfriForum against the Minister of Health over the extension of Covid-19 regulations, despite the end of the National State of Disaster.

ActionSA’s legal application will be argued by the party’s Head of Strategic Litigation and Senate member Advocate Gill Benson.

ActionSA is concerned that the regulations give the Minister powers to create and amend legislation on impulse, with no accountability mechanisms, with the party citing the potential for abuse of such sweeping powers.

ActionSA has said the gazetted regulations are preposterous, unconstitutional, unlawful and procedurally irrational.

 

Ramaphosa congratulates ANC in the Eastern Cape for conducting the conference with dignity

ANC President Cyril Ramaphosa congratulated the party in the Eastern Cape for conducting its elective conference with dignity.

Oscar Mabuyane was re-elected Eastern Cape chairperson.

Ramaphosa said it was impressive that commitment and resoluteness was shown to ensure that the conference took place.

Ramaphosa encouraged the delegates to demonstrate that they are a revolutionary organization.

He also applauded those that were not elected and said that they remained leaders of the party.

 

Stage 2 load-shedding planned for Tuesday evening

Stage 2 load-shedding will again be implemented from 17:00 to 22:00 tonight.

There is also a possibility of higher load-shedding stages should any breakdowns occur.

Eskom warned that the onset of winter has seen increased demand and this will lead to severe capacity constraints throughout this period, particularly during the evening and morning peaks.

A generation unit each at the Kusile and Arnot power stations are expected to return to service this afternoon.

Since Monday evening, a unit each at Arnot, Grootvlei and Matla power stations either tripped or were taken offline for repairs.

 

That’s a roundup of news making headlines today
