Morning clouds. Mild.
The current tensions surrounding xenophobia in South Africa brings to mind Mahmood Mamdani's book titled When Victims Become Killers, writes Ralph Mathekga.
If I don't agree with the verdict of the court, I still have an obligation to read it and engage with its specific reasoning. Anything short of that is just a slander against the judge, writes Ralph Mathekga.
Halfway through the current term, the greatest achievement in Tshwane and Joburg is the failure of the ANC to remove the DA mayors. Mashaba's biggest achievement is that he survived the attempts to remove him, writes Ralph Mathekga.
There is no point in regulating how political parties handle donations if we do not go deeper into how they handle their internal processes – these also need to be standardised, writes Ralph Mathekga.
In confronting his detractors to try to remove him, President Ramaphosa is betting on the broader South African population to ensure that the cost of removing him will be too high for the ANC, writes Ralph Mathekga.
Jacob Zuma says that we have no discernible definition of state capture, but this is exactly what the Zondo commission is trying to establish, writes Ralph Mathekga.

The dignity of the commission has been held up by Zondo's personal approach to the process. Even the most reluctant witness could not gather the rudeness to withdraw from the commission, writes Ralph Mathekga.
Our obsession with the ANC is keeping us from engaging about what is really important. We fail deliberately in rescuing the public dialogue, writes Ralph Mathekga.
Ramaphosa's response to Mkhwebane is that the Public Protector has no business probing the president's campaign financing. Even if the court affirms this, it doesn't answer the political question about who made the donations, writes Ralph Mathekga.
The Public Protector is acting in a manner that shows that she not only doesn't fear political backlash from her controversial reports, but also does not fear any possibility that Parliament may remove her, writes Ralph Mathekga.

The state of municipalities in South Africa is the closest you get to state failure, a scenario where rules are broken systematically with impunity, writes Ralph Mathekga.
The president will use the SONA to drive the message that he is in charge and will not allow experimentation with the SARB. This may help in the short term but won't solve his problems with the ANC, writes Ralph Mathekga.
Whether or not we as a nation trust Busisiwe Mkhwebane, we still owe her an open, fair and transparent inquiry driven by public interest and not our narrow political preferences, writes Ralph Mathekga.
The best way to neutralise the Zuma factor in the ANC is to find space for some people so that they do not feel left out of the 'New Dawn'. It's strategic deployment, writes Ralph Mathekga.
Both the two main opposition parties have fared dismally in this election. As things stand, the best case scenario for the DA is to walk away with exactly the same amount of support the party went into the elections with, writes Ralph Mathekga.
Mkhwebane's decisions to probe Ramaphosa campaign donations will fuel calls for an inquiry into her fitness to hold office. Such an inquiry would have to be undertaken by a parliamentary committee, writes Ralph Mathekga.
There are too few people in Cabinet willing to openly side with Ramaphosa on the SARB matter, whilst too many people are quiet and seem to be non-committal in the debate, writes Ralph Mathekga.
Mabuza was showing that it if comes down to it, he will instigate a mutiny against Ramaphosa resulting in the president becoming increasingly isolated within the ANC, writes Ralph Mathekga.
Who received the mandate in the elections last week? Was it passed to the ANC or to Cyril Ramaphosa, or both? This is not an academic debate with no basis in real life, but influences how things will progress in government in the next five years, writes Ralph Mathekga.
If the DA fails to grow, the party will gradually lose its place around the table as a serious opposition party; the EFF will elbow them out, writes Ralph Mathekga.
