5 important things happening in South Africa today

Here’s what is happening in and affecting South Africa today:

  • The EFF wants to govern Tshwane, and says that in terms of its power-sharing deal with the DA after the municipal elections, it’s entitled to govern at least on the metros it helped the DA topple the ANC in. At the time, the EFF said it did not want to govern, but now it wants a mayor in the country’s capital. [ENCA]
