5 important things happening in South Africa today

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

  • Public enterprises minister Pravin Gordhan said on Tuesday that the government was committed to saving South African Airways, but there is no more money available from state coffers. He said that striking unions needed to work things out with SAA as quickly as possible so the airline can return to its turnaround strategy. [Reuters]
  • After 300 days in office, the head of the NPA Shamila Batohi is still not close to pursuing anyone fingered in the State Capture saga, with prosecutions only ‘likely’ to start emerging in 2020, she said. The NPA’s action on state capture has been hamstrung by low morale, capacity issues at the Hawks, and the Zondo commission into state capture – while helpful – doesn’t make building cases any easier, she said.
