Quote of the week

The judgments are replete with the findings of dishonesty and mala fides against Major General Ntlemeza. These were judicial pronouncements. They therefore constitute direct evidence that Major General Ntlemeza lacks the requisite honesty, integrity and conscientiousness to occupy the position of any public office, not to mention an office as more important as that of the National Head of the DPCI, where independence, honesty and integrity are paramount to qualities. Currently no appeal lies against the findings of dishonesty and impropriety made by the Court in the judgments. Accordingly, such serious findings of fact in relation to Major General Ntlemeza, which go directly to Major General Ntlemeza’s trustworthiness, his honesty and integrity, are definitive. Until such findings are appealed against successfully they shall remain as a lapidary against Lieutenant General Ntlemeza.

Equal Education Seminar: Was SA sold out in 1994?

EE Seminar – “Was SA Sold Out in 1994? Economic Choices at the Transition?”

This Thursday Equal Education will be hosting a seminar about the nature of the economic transition in South Africa in the early 1990s. The topic is titled: “Was South Africa sold out in 1994? A public debate on the economic choices at the time of the transition.” 

This was prompted by an article (“How the ANC’s Faustian pact sold out South Africa’s poorest“) written by Ronnie Kasrils in the Gaurdian in which he asserts that the ANC had, in the past, failed to make favourable decisions which would lead to more radical economic change in South Africa. He continues by stating that these decisions, in the transitory period of 1990, resulted in deepened inequality and poverty. 

The panel includes Ronnie Kasrils (Former Minister of Intelligence and ANC NEC member), Rob Petersen (Adv of the High Court of South Africa) and Yoliswa Dwane (Chairperson of Equal Education). The session will be chaired by Fatima Hassan (Executive Director of the Open Society Foundation for South Africa).
