The View Point 16 April 2019. #The AfricanNarrative.

Guest: Mustafa Mehta – Head of the African Desk at Media Review Network
Libya is on fired and with every conversation that we hear, colonial influence is at the root of the unrest. When you take a closer look at most of the problems that Africa faces, one sees the ghost or hidden hand of colonial imperialists in one form or another (e.g. Libya, Sudan, Algeria, Boko Haram in Nigeria, the terror threat in Cabo Delgado Province, Northern Mozambique).
Why is it that instability on our continent seems to be concentrated in highly resourced areas? What lessons can Africa learn from what is happening in Libya?

The View Point 15 April 2019. Alternative Sources of Government Revenue in South Africa

Alternative Sources of Government Revenue in South Africa – where are they and why hasn’t anyone tapped into them?
Guest:: Dr Bhaso Yalezo – Lecturer at the UKZN Graduate School of Business (they are the conveners of the public talk)

The University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) will host the 7th Business Forum of the UKZN Graduate School of Business and Leadership themed: Alternative Sources of Government Revenue in South Africa?
In South Africa, government does not play a direct role in the economy. Its main role in the economy is to encourage economic growth. The money given to the national departments comes mainly from taxes paid by the country's people and businesses. Only people who have jobs and who earn more than a certain amount of money per month have to pay tax. Where else can government look for alternative revenue? For how long will the depreciating tax pool subsidize the country’s people and the expenses?

Guest:: Zolani Mkiva – Secretary General and Spokesperson for Contralesa (Congress of Traditional Leaders in South Africa)
The VhaVenda king Khosikhulu Toni Mphephu Ramabulana's ascension to the throne has been challenged by his niece, daughter of the previous king for a couple of years now. Princess vhoMasindi Ramabulana says she was sidelined because she is a woman. Last week, the Supreme Court of Appeal overruled the appointment of Khosikhuku Toni and it recognised Princess VhoMasindi’s appeal.
Why do we see all these battles especially when women stand to benefit? Do women have no place in traditional leadership? Is Kingship and Chieftancy not a straight forward thing when the next person is supposed to take the throne.

Corporate South Africa is not immune to the challenges that we see in government institutions –From structural racism in organisations and the role executives play in sustaining discriminatory practices, to the emotional and psychological trauma suffered by black professionals as a result of corporate abuse and the suppression of black talent (especially black women).
