ANC manifesto: we’ve heard that all before

31st January 2019 Before I start, let me say this: I have spent the past two days thinking about what to say about the election manifesto of the African National Congress (ANC). After reading the ANC’s manifesto, I thought of Duma Gqubule, who, referring to President Cyril Ramaphosa’s economic stimulus plan, said... 

A reflection on 2018

14th December 2018 Almost a year ago, Cyril Ramaphosa was elected president of the African National Congress (ANC) at the Nasrec national conference of the ruling party. Two months later, he became the President of the republic. His election was greeted with a great sense of euphoria, optimism and hope. The end of... 

State capture – again

19th October 2018 In my last interview with polity.org, I argued that there is an Askari element in the African National Congress (ANC). This Askari element consists of members and leaders of the ANC who, since the days of the liberation struggle, have been part of the project to destroy the ANC and, thereby,... 

Facilitators of State capture in SA

21st September 2018 The State capture commission of inquiry is under way. The picture that is beginning to emerge is that of a South Africa where, by the time former President Jacob Zuma left the stage, corruption was no longer endemic because it had become systemic. In other words, by the time Zuma was forced to... 

Dissecting the ANC’s sudden interest in land expropriation

24th August 2018 Does South Africa belong to those who live in it, or to those who conquered it? In other words, is land expropriation without compensation constitutionally permissible and, is it possible to expropriate land without compensation without the consent of the conquerors? According to the Freedom... 

Land question

17th August 2018 Does South Africa belong to those who live in it, or to those who conquered it? In other words, is land expropriation without compensation constitutionally permissible and, is it possible to expropriate land without compensation, without, the consent of the conquerors? According to the Freedom... 

Ramaphoria index falling

20th July 2018 This month we are celebrating the centenary of the birth of Nelson Mandela. I suspect that the country will celebrate more the older Mandela than the young hothead of a militant who became a commander in the armed struggle against white minority rule. To me, the commemoration of the centenary of... 

When crime intelligence is lacking

22nd June 2018 The cash-in-transit heists, taxi violence and political assassinations in KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) should worry us deeply. What they suggest is the possibility that both policing and our intelligence environment may be in a state of crisis. While it is critical that we avoid errors in analysis that... 

A reflection on the DA-De Lille imbroglio

28th May 2018 A hegemonic project is at its zenith when its driving logic, values and what it represents have become commonsensical. Hegemony at this stage of development is about the reproduction of relations in society in a way that continues to guarantee the dominance of hegemonic interests. It is about... 

We should be less euphoric about the Ramaphosa moment

23rd March 2018 In his State of the Nation address, President Cyril Ramaphosa spoke about  a new dawn, hope and renewal. Quoting from the song Thuma Mina (send me), by the late South African jazz giant, Hugh Masekela, he asked us to act in pursuit of a better life and a better South Africa. Since Ramaphosa's...
