High level clouds. Mild.
As from Wednesday March 18, the new maritime regulations kicked in to deal with the coronavirus. From visas to managing trade and evacuations, seaports are preparing for the period that lies ahead.
It is clear to me that labour’s defence of jobs will not extend to the heavily bloated SOE management structures. Cutting just half of those Eskom managers will save the utility R800m per year. writes Adriaan Basson.
Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan has said government and labour will have to work diligently to seek a compromise if they are to realise government's proposal to reduce the public service wage bill by R160.2 billion in a sustainable manner.
Government will respect their authority, says the minister of public enterprises.
The State of the Nation Address showed, once again, Ramaphosa’s proclivity to avoid tackling contentious issues, writes Mcebisi Ndletyana.
Malema desperately tried to show that by inviting him to the SONA, the ANC had endorsed his views about apartheid. This is nonsense, writes Adriaan Basson.
Just because two people divorce, doesn't mean they never loved one another. This is how EFF leader Julius Malema described the party's relationship with Minister Pravin Gordhan.
The EFF is set to take the National Director of Public Prosecutions' (NDPP) decision to withdraw charges against the so-called SARS rogue unit on review.
