JSE-bound Thungela Resources CEO is upbeat about the spin-off's prospects

Multi-national mining behemoth Anglo American's eagerly anticipated spin-off of its South African coal assets is around the corner. July Ndlovu, CEO of Thungela Resources (ex-Anglo coal) was on the BizNews Power Hour outlining the investment case for the JSE-bound commodity counter. Anglo American has been under pressure from shareholders to disinvest from assets no longer meeting its environmental, social and governance (ESG) standards. The spin-off provides investors with a single commodity counter that is cash generative. BizNews founder Alec Hogg and Sasfin Securities David Shapiro share their pearls of wisdom on the corporate action, having seen many similar types of spin-off scenarios over their years whilst covering the capital markets. The price is likely to be under pressure from the onset, given the predictable sell-off from international investors. This could provide an attractive entry point in the weeks after listing.

Exposed: Municipalities have diverted billions from the poor, depriving them of free basic electricity

A new electricity scandal has erupted in South Africa. Only two in every 10 poor households that qualify for free basic electricity have received it for at least the past five years, with municipalities diverting at least R40bn earmarked for indigents. This has been highlighted by Chris Yelland, one of South Africa's top energy analysts. He speaks to Jackie Cameron about how it is very difficult and often impossible for poor people to register for free basic services and raises the questions about how it is possible that the authorities - from the National Treasury to municipal officials - have not raised the alarm about this situation.
