South Africa’s Socio-Political Environment
resentation by Justice Malala, Political Analyst

  • Post Manguang – Cyril Ramaphosa’s election as deputy president of the ANC and the endorsement of the NDP is positive for the business sector. The same goes for the rejection of nationalisation of the mines as policy.
  • Marikana and its consequences will lead to lower investment in the mining industry.
  •  Wild cat and unprotected strikes will continue. Worker militancy will increase which should put upward pressure on wage inflation.
  • Cosatu and NUM will continue to be under pressure. In many areas they have lost contact with their constituents, even more so in the mining industry and specifically in the platinum belt.
  •  In the run-up to the 2014 elections, Malala warned that the “noise” levels and political rhetoric will escalate. View it as such and do not get carried away or be alarmed. After the election it will be business as usual.
  • The challenges posed by the ineffective education system, high and rising unemployment, service delivery inefficiencies and bottlenecks will persist for time to come.

Interview with Chomsky from India

Chomsky In First Person
In this exclusive interview, Noam Chomsky speaks to V.K. Ramachandran about the 'new war against terrorism', imperialism, the media and the role of intellectuals.
November 15, 2001: there is a break in the North East monsoon, and it is a clear, cool day in Thekkady. Noam Chomsky is on the second day of his first holiday in many years, a five-day break from pu...tle illegitimate authority and expand the domains of freedom and justice? The task, then, is not to 'speak truth' to the king, or even to the king's subjects, but to learn from them, to contribute what we can, and to participate with them in common struggle for values we discover and uphold. It seems to me that those are the directions in which responsibilities of intellectuals should be sought.
