Recent developments in SA put Davos delegation in a good place - Ralph Mathekga

Political analyst Ralph Mathekga says recent developments in South Africa - the latest being the appointment of a new Eskom board - puts the Davos delegation in a good position to convince international investors that this country is a good prospect.

The South African team, under the leadership of Deputy President Ramaphosa, will take the opportunity presented by the World Economic Forum to convince international stakeholders that South Africa is serious about dealing with what he described as the scourge in the country.

Mathekga insists the delegation can restore confidence in the market.

Quite a difficult one no doubt about it, looking at what has happened in South Africa over the months, but I will say that some of the developments that we have seen in South Africa in the last few days if you like, puts them in a good position to try and put a good word in and say to the captains of the economy that there is an intention to do things differently...
