Jeff Radebe says election dip is a warning for ANC come 2024


ANC head of policy Jeff Radebe said today that organisational renewal is important for the survival of the party.

The party released its policy discussion papers ahead of the much-awaited policy conference scheduled to take place between July 28 and 31.

The ANC will take discussions to its branches and other forums, which will convene between the end of June and July 23.

Amongst the party’s strategic focus the ANC aims to discuss structural reforms of network industries for expanded investment, particularly in electricity, telecommunications, water, rail and road infrastructure.


Ramaphosa says R22m flag project has been cancelled

President Cyril Ramaphosa says he told Sports, Arts and Culture Minister Nathi Mthethwa to cancel the controversial R22-million project to erect a 100m flagpole at Freedom Park in Pretoria. 

Yesterday, Mthethwa announced that he "directed his department to review the process related to the monumental flag in its totality".

However, Ramaphosa's comments emphatically state that the project has been cancelled.

South Africans were not happy about the project, questioning the reasoning behind the project during the country’s precarious economic situation.    


South Africans are warned to expect stage 2 load-shedding in the evenings all weekend 

Eskom says a shortage of generation capacity has persisted, and Stage 2 load-shedding will be implemented from 17:00 to 22:00 from today until Sunday.

The power utility said it will continue to closely monitor the system, adjust and communicate any changes as may be necessary.

The utility has 3 405 megawatts out on planned maintenance, while another 15 534 megawatts of capacity is unavailable due to breakdowns.

Eskom admitted that acts of sabotage had been uncovered at its Tutuka power station, and that it suspected an inside job.
