In terms of building confidence, few things are as important as implementing Chief Justice Raymond Zondo's recommendations, both to prosecute those implicated in state capture and to set up the structures, processes and political culture designed to deter future corruption, says Busisiwe Mavuso.

While workers' rights have been firmly established for those who do have jobs, things seem bleak for those who don't with unemployment at a staggering 35%. Only 14.3 million South Africans have jobs, according to Statistics SA, and only a better education system combined with higher levels of economic growth can change this.

How we act in the short term is important in terms of determining the type of society we are to become. There are just a few levers we need to pull to rebuild confidence in our investment environment and rejuvenate our economic recovery.
