THE HOT BOX

According to city press Columnist Sipho Masondo, The ANC has run its course and has reached a dead end from which it is close to impossible for the party to offer South Africans anything of value.
He says The party has entered a twilight zone from which the only logical step is to plunge into the graveyard of political parties which failed to transform themselves from being liberation movements into political outfits running 21st century economies.
The piece recounts how following the election in 1994, The ANC came into power with no money in the Treasury.
The National Party’s politicians had plundered every little cent when they saw their regime collapsing and the then new government was left with billions of debt.
But In a matter of a few years the ANC built Treasury and the South African Revenue Service, collected billions in taxes and settled all the previous government’s debt.
So efficient was the ANC with finances that former finance minister Trevor Manuel ran a surplus for a good few years.
Masondo goes on to comment that black people are not able to run anything efficiently is propaganda.
But we look at were are now and know for sure the ANC of then is not the governing party of to day.

THE CONNECTING ROOM

For 2019, Statistics South Africa estimates the mid-year population at 58,78 million.
About 30 million of the population is female and Gauteng comprises the largest share of the South African population, with approximately 15,2 million people living in this province.
About 28,8% of the population is aged younger than 15 years.
in the late 1970’s China introduced a one child policy as part of a birth planning program designed to control the size of its rapidly growing population.
This was the world most extreme example of population planning as it set a limit on the number of births parents could have and only ended in 2015.
To enforce existing birth limits of one or two children, provincial governments could, and did, require the use of contraception, sterilizations and abortions to ensure compliance, and imposed enormous fines for violations.
China also rewarded families with only one child.

THE HOT BOX

President Cyril Ramaphosa has announced that government will start the procurement of emergency power from projects that can deliver electricity into the grid.
This will happen within three to 12 months from approval, and municipalities will also be allowed to procure their own power from independent power producers.
The president made the announcement in his State of the Nation Address last Thursday.
The president said that, over the next few months, government would implement measures to "fundamentally change the trajectory of energy generation in our country".
Load shedding would remain a possibility for the immediate future, he added.
