NDZ Leadership Campaign Gathers Pace with Deputy Appointment

SOUTH AFRICA
  • Dlamini-Zuma’s campaign for the ANC leadership in December is gathering pace, striking a deal with Lindiwe Sisulu, the current minister for Tourism under Ramaphosa, to run against the incumbent President. News24 write that former leader Zuma has fully endorsed the joint campaign. The partnership is yet to receive the backing of any provincial executive committee.
  • Petrol prices are to decline in October, with 95 octane to drop by R1.02 and 89 cents a litre for 93 at midnight. Diesel prices, however, are to rise slightly, according to EWN. This will mark the third consecutive decline in petrol prices.
  • ENCA write that Johannesburg’s water reserves have reached critical levels, prompting outages across a number of local areas fed by a number of reservoirs.
  • Data releases are few and far between Tuesday, but markets will watch for any developments from the SARB’s bi-annual monetary policy review. A statement from the governor Kganyago is expected alongside the release.
