South African President Cyril Ramaphosa Says His Party Won’t Mind Being In Opposition

Published

African National Congress (ANC) President Cyril Ramaphosa has set the record clear that his party will not be begging to form coalition agreements with any party .

Ramaphosa made the remarks at the ANC’s “Thanksgiving” rally held at the University of Joburg’s Soweto campus on Monday, 8 November 2021.

This comes after three political parties: ActionSA, Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) and Democratic Alliance (DA) have ruled out working with the governing party, in the wake of the local government elections. While the ANC has claimed majority in 161 of the country’s 213 municipalities, there are 66 others which are now hung, leaving the party with no choice, but to form coalition, in a case where the ANC still want to continue governing.

Political parties have been holding coalition talks in the past few days, including the ANC, which has reportedly already met with the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF).

President Ramaphosa told ANC supporters and members that they won’t enter into coalitions “at all costs” and that if necessary, they are more than happy to sit on the opposition benches.

“A number of parties are going around boastfully saying: ’We are not going to work with the ANC’, but who said we want to work with them? We are not on our knees. If comrades must be in opposition, then we will be in opposition,” said Ramaphosa.

Adding that as the ANC, they haven’t always had the best experiences with coalition governments and are now looking to form stable partnerships.

Ramaphosa also thanked all the members, volunteers and delegates of the ANC, saying that they had done their best to garner support for the party.

Tanzania’s President Samia Suluhu on Forbes most powerful women 2021 list

Published

suhusuhu

Tanzania’s President Samia Suluhu Hassan has been named on Forbes’ list of the world’s most powerful women in 2021.

The list which includes politicians, celebrities, and businesswomen have been compiled for the past 18 years with billionaire philanthropist MacKenzie Scott taking top position this year.

Scott is the third richest woman in the world, but it’s her unfettered access to that money—and her determination to donate it in a way that is meaningful and revolutionary—that puts her above the competition.

“We are all attempting to give away a fortune that was enabled by systems in need of change,” Scott said this summer.

Just behind her at number 2 is US vice president Kamala Harris, she has moved up one spot swapping places with Christine Lagarde, the president of the European Central Bank who is in the third spot.

The publisher says that while the people on the 18th annual list of the World’s 100 ‘Most Powerful Women’ come from 30 countries and territories and work across finance, technology, politics, philanthropy, entertainment, and more, they are united by a sense of duty.

According to the editor, Maggie McGrath, President Samia Suluhu Hassan has been instrumental in implementing Covid protocols in Tanzania.

“All of these women represent the driving thesis behind the compilation of the list: it’s not just enough to have money or a position of power.  A person must be doing something with their fortune, voice, or public platform,” reads part of the statement.

The list also includes Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen, whose outspoken adherence to freedom and democracy in the face of increased pressure from China vaulted her 28 spots to number Nine.
