South Africa’s sixth democratic national election is done and dusted.
Warren Ingram, a financial advisor at Galileo Capital, is keeping a close eye on the following six things:
Election results - Magnitude is a signal, contrary to what others say.
President Ramaphosa’s “first” Cabinet – its size and who is there (and who isn’t).
The restructuring of Eskom - who is in charge (and how quickly they start making meaningful changes).
Land expropriation - How quickly it is resolved (and how rationally).
Streamlining of tourism in South Africa - visa regulations, crime fighting and the marketing of the country.
- Job creation and education initiatives - too early to measure (but what action are they considering?).
