Malema Loses the ‘Hate Speech’ Case

The Johannesburg Equality Court has found the African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL) president, Julius Malema, guilty of hate speech and harassment.

NPOs and King III: How to Apply?

The release of the King III Report on Corporate Governance on September 1 last year and its imminent application has rekindled and invigorated the national discourse on corporate governance and social responsibility. Although this is a positive step, there is a need to orientate the debate towards the responsibilities of the Non-profit Organisation (NPO) sector in a more meaningful way than has been hitherto by King III.

Southern African Catholic Bishops’ Conference Comments on the 2010/11 Budget

The budget tabled today by Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan was in all likelihood the last that will come in at under R1 trillion. The government will spend R907 billion in the coming financial year, due to the rise in inflation by plus 2 percent in each of the coming three years. We have come a long way, at least in expenditure terms – the 1996/7 budget was R157 billion, and ten years ago, in 2000/1, it was (only) R245 billion.

Institute for Global Dialogue Comments on the 2010/11 Budget

We welcome the attempt by Minister Pravin Gordhan to balance the competing demands of staying the course and the need for change in the face of the global economic crisis. This balancing act is made even more complex by the shift in the balance of forces within the governing African National Congress (ANC) alliance before and after Polokwane, a development that posed a threat to the growth, employment and redistribution (GEAR) consensus.

Johannesburg Child Welfare Comments on the 2010/11 Budget

Johannesburg Child Welfare welcomes the provision in the National Budget for the extension of the Child Support Grant to impoverished children aged between 16 and 18 years. This is a long-awaited development that will enable a large number of young people to complete their schooling, instead of dropping out early and falling into dangerous methods of survival such as crime, prostitution and other "worst forms" of child labour.
