Half of SA Over-Indebted: SAHRC

The South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) says that over half of South Africa's credit-active consumers are over-indebted.

SAHRC Western Cape provincial manager, Karam Singh, points out that, “Of 19 million credit-active consumers in South Africa, 50 percent had impaired credit records, three months plus in arrears.”

Singh says that the macro-economic system that South Africa has continues to favour historical wealth creation and that the country’s economic system perpetuates inequality and is characterised by weak regulatory oversight.

Activists Condemn Land Given to Chinese

A group of youth activists condemned the Namibian government's intention to approve the lease of 10 000 hectares of fertile land to a Chinese company wanting to grow tobacco for export.

Group leader, Job Amupanda, argues that, "It is our submission that to allocate more land for tobacco than is allocated for food production is a deviation from the policy direction taken by the Namibian government through its Agriculture Ministry, which leans towards eradicating limitations to Namibia's capacity to provide food security and adequate levels of nutrition."
