5 important things happening in South Africa today

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

  • A new study, which interviewed over 1,600 South Africans, has found that a tax revolt has already begun in South Africa, with citizens purposefully withholding tax via tax avoidance and fraud, as a direct result of lost trust in government due to the state capture saga. The research found that trust in government had declined from 62% to 55% between the first and second quarters of the year, while trust in SARS was still low at 60%. [IOL]
  • President Cyril Ramaphosa will be giving a UN general council meeting a skip this month, so that he can be present and focus on critical issues back home in South Africa. International relations and co-operation minister Naledi Pandor will lead the delegation instead. Ramaphosa was accused of inaction during the recent swell of violence in the country – including the xenophobic attacks and outrage regarding violence towards women. [BusinessLive]
