Is South Africa ready to move to lockdown Level 2?

13 August 2020 7:45 AM

Unconfirmed reports are speculating that South Africa could move to lockdown level 2 of the restriction, as the country experiences a downward trend in the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases. It is reported that a Directors-general meeting has suggested that almost all sectors of the economy be reopened.

 Yesterday, President Cyril Ramaphosa met with the Presidential Economic Advisory Council to discuss the country’s recovery plan. If the country does reopen the economy, what economy are we going back to?

Bongani joined by Dr Miriam Altman, Economist, Convenor of the COVID-19 Economists group and UJ prof of 4IR practice and Cas Coovadia, CEO of Business Unity South Africa and member of the Business4 South Africa.

KPMG Through the Eyes of its Chairman: A Memoir

22 September 2020 7:40 AM

What happens to an organisation when good governance and warning signs are ignored?

 In 2017 KPMG was embroiled in a Gupta-linked corruption scandal and the capture of SAR that rocked the auditing sector, including unethical conduct with VBS. Professor Wiseman Nkuhlu was brought in to help clean up the mess in the wake of sate capture and gupta-linked scandals at the risk of damaging his own reputation. He had a ringside seat at one of the worst financial crises South Africa has seen and has now written a book to describe his experience as Chairman of KPMG during the turbulent period the firm experienced. 

 His book, Enabler or Victim: KPMG SA and State Capture, captures the ideas and beliefs that influenced his actions during the time as chairman of the company. Can the company bounce back from reputational damage? Are reparations enough?

Bongani joined by Professor Wiseman Nkuhlu, KPMG Chairperson.

Protest to Nigeria’s Embassy: Is it Xenophobia?

21 September 2020 7:36 AM

Could a planned protest march to the Nigerian Embassy this week against crime be xenophobic or is it purely based on concerns around crime, and why is it targeted against Nigerians? Sunday Times reported over the weekend that the organisation, Action for Change is planning to march to the Nigerian embassy against crime. But Human Rights organisations are concerned that this may have xenophobic undertones.

A recent report by Human Rights Watch has shown that foreign nationals living in South Africa are constant targets by South Africans and law enforcement agencies and that they are constantly living in fear. 

Based on interviews with 51 people in Western Cape, Gauteng, and KwaZulu-Natal provinces, the report says mobs of angry rioters throughout South Africa have attacked and harassed non-nationals, blaming them for unemployment, crime, neglect by the government, among other things.



Bongani joined by Dewa Mavhinga, Southern Africa Director at Human Rights Watch.
