Parliament woke up too late to state capture, Modise tells Zondo commission

Johannesburg - Parliament only “woke up and smelled the coffee” on the extent to which the State was captured when it was too late, said Speaker in the National Parliament, Thandi Modise, who appeared before the state capture commission of inquiry on Monday.
She even went to the extent of apologising for their late reaction.
Modise told the Commission that Parliament only really “woke up” after the Constitutional Court’s ruling on upgrades at former president Jacob Zuma’s Nkandla homestead.
“After the allegations of state capture, it was important for us to begin focusing the committees and Parliament into pointedly being deliberate about following up on issues. And that is what we intend to intensify before this term of Parliament finishes,” she said.

It is alleged that Mokgoro was asked to step down from his position as premier in March by the interim provincial committee (IPC), but refused the instruction. 
“The instruction came from number one,” the sources each told
M&G. 
Mokgoro, together with those loyal to former provincial chair Supra Mahumapelo, is said to be frustrating processes of governance and the ANC’s renewal agenda in the province, one source said.

The ANC leadership in the North West aligned to President Cyril Ramaphosa is facing an uphill fight against the so-called "Radical Economic Transformation" grouping as the latter appears to be behind fake "step aside lists" of party leaders expected to vacate their positions. 
A so-called step-aside list from the North West ANC purported to be fake surfaced on social media revealing names of some members of the interim provincial committee who'd been allegedly implicated in criminality, or charged.
On the list are the likes of the North West province task-team coordinator Hlomani Chauke and ANC's IPC member, Motlalepula Rosho.

5 ANC politicians whose family members have been caught doing business with government
Share
Durban - Weekend revelations that the son of senior ANC member and parliamentary chief whip Pemmy Majodina scored a lucrative tender to supply thermometers for the ruling party’s parliamentary caucus again revealed how some relatives of politicians benefit through their proximity to power.
While Majodina has said she regretted the lapse and was willing to surrender to the parliamentary ethics and ANC’s Integrity Commission, it remains to be seen whether other relatives of politicians will stay away from government tenders.
We look back at five prominent cases of relatives of politicians who allegedly used their proximity to power to score tenders. They range from Majodina’s son to Andile Ramaphosa, the son of President Cyril Ramaphosa.

South Africa recorded more than 900 service delivery protests in six months from August to January, according to Minister of Police Bheki Cele, as the pandemic did little to halt them.
According to the South African Police Service (SAPS) Incident Registration Information System (IRIS), a total of 909 protest actions took place from 1 August 2020 to 31 January 2021, Cele stated in response to a parliamentary question from Freedom Front Plus MP SF Du Toit.
“All the above-mentioned incidents were recorded as crowd management unrest-related incidents,” the response read.
The response added that a total of 657 persons were arrested from 1 August 2020 to 31 January for service delivery protest action incidents, in which illegal road closures were erected that infringed on the constitutional right of freedom of movement.

Former JOps Chief of Staff Mlideni Sibango takes the salute at his farewell parade.
Last week’s announcement of new senior commanders – including a new chief – for the national defence force’s Military Command Council (MCC) by Commander-in-Chief President Cyril Ramaphosa can, one observer thinks, be likened to the curate’s egg – good in parts but mostly bad.
Looking at the new command structure, retired Joint Operations Division Chief of Staff, former Major General Mlindeni Sibango, hopes the injection of new blood will see the core business of the SA National Defence Force (SANDF) conducted with a different approach in future.

JOHANNESBURG - Cosatu is shocked by government's delay in acquiring the COVID-19 vaccine. 
The vaccine was set to arrive in the first three months of 2021.  However, on Monday, President Cyril Ramaphosa, said we would get it only in the second quarter. 
Cosatu says the government is not providing good enough reasons for the delay.
"Government will have lowered their guard, I think they can do better," says secretary-general, Bheki Ntshalintshali.

"I am part of two people who are in charge of the Heritage Fund that belongs to a very powerful family out there in the world. This fund is here in South Africa already, it comes through the SA Reserve Bank," Sexwale said. "I'm part of two people who are mandate holders.
"The fund is able to help the students, for free education in this country. [Jacob] Zuma knew about the fund in 2016. Cyril [Ramaphosa] knew about the fund at that time that's why comrade Zuma spoke about free education, not government money."

Cyril Ramaphosa | At a rate of knots we are working to improve the Port of Durban, Transnet


President Cyril Ramaphosa. Photo: The Presidency.
As part of our Reconstruction and Recovery Plan, we will continue to work tirelessly to expand infrastructure investment and transform our network industries, writes
Cyril Ramaphosa.
Dear Fellow South African,
Last week, I visited the Port of Durban to see for myself the work being done to make the port more efficient and competitive.
After a briefing with the senior management of Transnet, I toured the harbour in a pilot boat, which is usually used to guide large ships through the entrance channel to the pier.
Seeing the workings of the port from the water, one is reminded of its vast scale and complexity. As we left the pier, we watched the African Finch, an enormous vessel laden with over 30 000 tonnes of timber, depart from the terminal. A vessel of this size carries immense economic value, and many such vessels pass through the port every day.

President Cyril Ramaphosa says that government plans to greatly expand the capacity of Durban’s port and rebuild state-owned enterprise Transnet.
Writing in his weekly open letter to the public, Ramaphosa said that the new management of Transnet and its operating divisions are resolutely focused on turning the performance of the port around.
“The management has ambitious and exciting expansion plans for all five of the port’s precincts.
“These include the deepening of the Maydon Wharf channel to allow larger, modern vessels to enter the port, the infill of Pier 1 and Pier 2 to create additional capacity for containers, and the development of a new container terminal in the Point Precinct.

As the pandemic empties city centres and alters work and travel patterns, planners must redesign them for new needs, functions and economies
With the prospect of a third wave looming larger, it is worth remembering that Covid-19 is not the first disaster to strike South African cities, nor will it be the last. Rather like the resilient fynbos that President Cyril Ramaphosa referred to in his state of the nation address, cities have always recovered from crises because of the valuable role they play in the economy and society. But they have not emerged unscathed.
The crucial question is how they will be altered as the recovery gets under way and gathers steam. Will there be a simple rebound to business as usual or will the urban landscape be changed in profound ways?.

The expansion of the Port of Durban precinct would require R100 billion in new investment over the next decade, according to President Cyril Ramaphosa
The upgrade is expected to expand capacity for container handling from 2.9 million units to more than 11 million units.
Some challenges like slow turnaround times, truck congestion, ship berthing delays and anchorage times, and poor maintenance of equipment have contributed to low productivity levels at the port
The expansion of the Port of Durban precinct would require R100 billion in new investment over the next decade, in a project that aimed at improving efficiency at one of the country's key drivers of economic growth, according to President Cyril Ramaphosa.

Just in: Zondo confirms 'bullet fired' at State Capture Inquiry offices


The State Capture Inquiry has, quite literally, come under fire this week. After a burglary was reported at the premises on Sunday, DCJ Raymond Zondo addressed the media earlier today to confirm a bullet had been found in one of their offices in Parktown. A gunshot had allegedly been fired through an external window.
Raymond Zondo confirms ‘gunshot’ at State Capture Inquiry
The shock admission has done little to deter the Zondo Commission, however. It’s business as usual on Monday, with Thandi Modise – the Parliamentary speaker – in the hot-seat. The DCJ, who admitted to being ‘concerned’ by these events, says that the matter is now being investigated by the legal authorities:
