I heard the phrase ‘radical economic transformation’ only once - Stephen Grootes

Ray White (in for Bruce Whitfield on The Money Show) interviewed EWN’s Stephen Grootes.

Grootes is in Durban for this year’s World Economic Forum Africa gathering where he spoke to President Jacob Zuma.

I asked him quite directly, if he felt rejected by workers at Cosatu's main May Day rally on Monday. His response to this was; people are misunderstanding democracy.

Other highlights of the day include, amongst others, former Democratic Alliance parliamentary leading Lindiwe Mazibuko’s address.

Mazibuko said the current crop of African leaders have failed and should be replaced.

For more detail; listen to the interview in the audio below (and/or scroll down for more quotes from it).

I heard the phrase ‘radical economic transformation’ only once. And it was followed quickly by the words ‘inclusive growth’.

Gigaba was trying to calm things down. I don’t know if he’s done that.

I was very surprised that he [Jacob Zuma] took questions.
