5 important things happening in South Africa today

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

  • Like it or not, the NHI is here to stay, says president Cyril Ramaphosa. The comments come a week after the NHI Bill was published for public scrutiny, where it has faced backlash from many sectors. Questions remain about funding, implementation and management of the scheme – as well as the role of medical aids. However, despite the backlash, Ramaphosa says it’s not going anywhere. [TimesLive]
  • The legal battle between Peter Moyo and Old Mutual has turned nasty, with the former CEO seeking a court order declaring that Old Mutual is in contempt of court for not immediately reinstating him as ordered by the court. Old Mutual is appealing the judgement, and argues that it does not have to comply with the order, pending the outcome of the appeals process. [Moneyweb]
