Instroming uit Afrika duur voort

Derduisende Angolese burgers wat tans in Kaapstad is, se verblyfreg as sogenaamde vlugtelinge, verval eersdaags. Dié vlugtelinge se status verval binnekort en nou word die eerste geluide gemaak dat hulle nie wil terugkeer na hulle land nie. Organisasies wat met Angolese vlugtelinge werk, krap kop nadat die kabinet besluit het die vlugteling status verval op 31 Augustus. Intussen is daar spanning waarneembaar onder inwoners in die Wes-Kaap wat meen die Angolese is indringers wat hulle van werk beroof.

Rand daal tot laagste vlak in vier jaar

Die rand het Donderdag tot sy laagste vlak in vier jaar gedaal. Die geldeenheid het in `n stadium teen R9,3845 per dollar verhandel. Daar is aanduidings dat verhandelaars meen wye skommeling gaan oor die volgende paar maande voorkom. Die goudprys en dié van ander hulpbronne het ook verswak, wat niks goeds inhou vir die tekort op die lopende rekening nie. Moody’s het reeds aangedui dat Suid-Afrika se soewereine kredietgradering weer verlaag kan word. Wêreldmarkte hou ons dop en bly baie sensitief met betrekking tot verdere steun van Suid-Afrika, sê Brigid Taylor van Nedbank.

SA is reeds in `n sosiale onrus gewikkel

Verlede jaar is daar aan die einde van Mei berig dat daar 273 protesoptogte was in dié vyf maande vanaf Januarie tot Mei!

Wat ‘n rooi gesig moet dit nie vir die weste veroorsaak nie. Vir jare moes die blanke Suid Afrikaners onder sanksies gebuk gaan tot die liberale weste uiteindelik hulle sin gekry het, en die land aan ‘n swart regering oorhandig is. Wat het hulle gedink gaan die swart regering vir hulle doen inruil daarvoor? Continue reading

Unemployment in South Africa is a ticking bomb, Cosatu general secretary Zwelinzima Vavi told the Sunday Times. “The bomb will continue to tick until at some point it begins exploding in a co-ordinated way,” Cosatu general secretary Zwelinzima Vavi told the Sunday Times. “We’re already seeing individual bombs exploding, but if the explosions are knitted together from Marikana to every mine, to every farm, to every township, then we’ll have a crisis.” Vavi said the situation around unemployment should be “making every South African have sleepless nights“.
