Newsflow Quiet, But a Stressful Fortnight for Ramaphosa

SOUTH AFRICA
  • Newsflow remains relatively quiet across South Africa, with focus on the near-term future of the President as a number of deadlines loom:
  • Tomorrow, Nov 11th, the ANC’s integrity commission report on the findings from their Phala Phala scandal inquiry.
  • Nov 15th marks the publication of branch nominations for the ANC’s elective conference (key to Ramaphosa’s re-election chances)
  • Nov 16th sees the three-person independent panel making a recommendation to the National Assembly on whether sufficient evidence exists to proceed with the Section 89 impeachment process.
  • Today marks the beginning of strike action from the PSA civil servants union, with possible disruption to border control, however teachers are not expected to join the strike for now.
  • Finance minister Godongwana and energy minister Mantashe are due to appear at a CEO summit later today, and will likely comment on plans for Eskom going forward. The utility’s CEO de Ruyter is interviewed by eNCA.
