5 important things happening in South Africa today

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

  • A 2014 report into the so-called ‘rogue unit’ at SARS, leaked by the EFF, has exposed to the public the names of several government operatives from the State Security Agency, and also given insight into how government agencies worked to protect former president Jacob Zuma, and laid out the genesis of the campaign against Pravin Gordhan and other former SARS officials who were targeted by the findings – which were never in the original scope to begin with.

  • Civil action group and key e-toll opponents Outa say Sanral’s latest financial reporting shows that the controversial tolling project has failed, and it is time to pull the plug. Over the 5 years and 4 months since it launched, e-tolls were supposed to pull in R16 billion – however Sanral has managed only to get R4.5 billion, while needing government bailouts to cover its debt. The group has also been forced to disregard billions of rands in tolls that it will never collect from motorists. [Outa]
