ANC says renaming William Nicol Drive reflects efforts to encourage social cohesion

The renaming of William Nicol Drive to Winnie Mandela Drive has been lauded by the African National Congress as a powerful symbol of South Africa’s heritage and history.

The City of Johannesburg unveiled the name change today, the same day as what would have been stalwart Winnie Madikizela-Mandela’s eighty-seventh birthday.

The ANC has stressed the importance of acknowledging the significant contributions made by this towering anti-Apartheid activist and leader towards the struggle for democracy in South Africa.

The ANC said Madikizela-Mandela’s life and legacy continue to inspire many as a symbol of resistance and resilience.


DA wants Chris Pappas to lead KZN next year

uMngeni Mayor Chris Pappas has been announced as the Democratic Alliance’s Premier candidate in KwaZulu-Natal for the 2024 national elections.

This announcement was made by DA leader John Steenhuisen at the Durban City Hall.

He described Pappas as a dynamic young leader who has made the uMngeni municipality a shining beacon on the hill while the rest of KZN lies in ruin.

Steenhuisen lamented the state of the province under the leadership of the African National Congress, blaming misery, hunger, maladministration and poverty on the ruling party.

The DA contends that change within KwaZulu-Natal and throughout the country is only possible if all South Africans register to vote.


Government to fast-track vaccines amid fears of chicken, egg shortage

Government plans to fast-track the use of vaccines to fight bird flu as virulent strains of the disease sweep across the country’s poultry sector. 

The the Department of Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development said it had met with vaccine registration regulators and reached an agreement "that the registration of vaccine will be fast-tracked".

The department said it has also assisted in importing fertile eggs for the broiler industry and that a similar request for the table eggs will be considered if received.

While the H5N1 avian influenza virus first emerged back in 1996, World Health Organisation researchers found that it became much more infectious since mid-2021 and rapidly evolved as it spread from Europe into North America. In the US, it resulted in the death of 60-million farmed birds.
