Nub of the EWC issue – an inappropriately named Goodwill

By Alec Hogg

King Goodwill Zwelithini

We’re hosting the IRR’s Terence Corrigan in London tonight. So will soon be able to share some sensible thoughts on the ANC’s controversial Expropriation Without Compensation proposals.

But the more I hear about Cyril Ramaphosa’s hot potato, the more I believe Jakkie Cilliers nailed it in our interview last week.

Cilliers, author of the excellent book Fate Of The Nation, reckons the real challenge for SA’s new president is to get chiefs into the modern world.

Most obviously, the extremely reluctant Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini whose trust controls 60% of KwaZulu Natal. The apparent issue is never the real issue, is it?
