The world is changing fast and to keep up you need local knowledge with global context.
Secretary-general Ace Magashule says that the party is outraged and embarrassed by allegations that ‘some of its own’ seek to unlawfully benefit from the suffering caused by Covid-19. This follows a meeting in late July where the ANC’s National Executive Committee (NEC) met to discuss corruption and plans for economic recovery. However, Magashule’s name has been mentioned a few times in connection with strange dealings. His sons, Tshepiso and Thato, were awarded government contracts for Covid-19 goods and services, and Magashule himself is at the heart of a Zondo commission inquiry. Join the conversation on corruption this Thursday (6 August) at Tim Modise’s noon free-to-air webinar. This week’s guests are the head of the country’s great hope in the fight against corruption: Special Investigating Unit head Advocate Andy Mothibi; Sipho Ngwema, the spokesperson of the National Prosecuting Authority; and Advocate Selby Makgotho of the Special Tribunal. It’s not to be missed. Register here. – Claire Badenhorst

ANC NEC: comedians or taking us for fools? Embarrassed about corruption, drawing a line! Those accused “may” step aside – not must, MAY. Last month they reinstated the VBS gang – just allegations they said, so what’s changed? We’ll believe them when Ace steps aside#702Breakfast

During an interview where ANC NEC spokesperson @pulemabe is asked about how “ashamed” the ANC is about its corruption, he failed to answer why @ANCParliament allowed a convicted fraudster Tony Yengeni to HEAD up the ANC corruption committee. What a joke. #ANCashamedofnothing

Imagine Bongo, a guy accused of corruption after he allegedly offered advocate Vanara “an unlawful gratification”, remaining Chair of a committee of parliament; Zwane as well and the two sitting in the NEC of the ANC deciding on ethical and integrity matters. A bioscope script

I like how the ANC and its MPs are pretending like PPE corruption caught them by surprise.
