The SWF - What is and how it works.

Minister of Mineral Resources and Energy Gwede Mantashe has said that royalties the state receives from mining could be used to start up the sovereign wealth fund that President Cyril Ramaphosa announced in his State of the Nation Address.  The debate has been going on on whether South African can afford it or where SA could find money to establish it.

TECH CONVERSATIONS

HOUSING DATA CENTRES

Building or housing data centres in SA. How important is that and what does it mean for the 4th Industrial Revolution?

And I also see here that Teraco is making some huge investments in data centres having invested about R7.3 billion so far. The centre they are building in Ekurhuleni is the largest in Africa and operates a data centre further east, in Bredell on the East Rand, as well as smaller facilities in Cape Town and Durban.

UNDER THE MICROSCOPE
The nature of the BEE
As you know yesterday it was announced that AB InBev’s South African Breweries (SAB) unit plans to list its new R5.4 billion broad-based black economic empowerment (B-BBEE) ownership scheme, dubbed SAB Zenzele Kabili, on the JSE on April 15. The move will also see black retail investors now being able to secure shares in the beer giant.
A new book is launching soon, Beyond Tenderpreneurship: Rethinking Black Business and Economic Empowerment and examines the nature of BEE today.

FNB senior economist Siphamandla Mkhwanazi said recently commented that police crackdowns on illicit trade in South Africa’s major cities in the second half of 2019, along with civil riots, has contributed to a fall in informal employment. He was responding to Statistics South Africa Quarterly Labour Force Survey for the last three months of 2019, which showed that the unemployment rate remained unchanged at 29.1%– the highest number since the start of the QLFS survey in 2008.

UNDER THE MICROSCOPE: Angelo Fick Analyst

FW DE KLERK

The FW de Klerk Foundation has officially withdrawn its contentious statement that apartheid was not a crime against humanity, and has apologised.
It has also agreed that apartheid was indeed a crime against humanity, as defined by the International Criminal Court. In a statement released by his foundation on Monday, De Klerk said he had taken note of the angry reaction to the statement that had insisted that apartheid was not a crime against humanity

What can we make of all this and what does it really say about the process of reconciliation in SA?
