Global Citizen Festival raises R100 billion! P resident Cyril Ramaphosa has congratulated the Global Citizen Festival for its work, calling on South Africans and people worldwide to be the generation that ends poverty. “We are united in Madiba’s vision of a world where every human being lives in freedom and prosperity. His spirit is the driving force behind the Global Citizen movement. “By your mere presence here, you have declared that poverty is a stain on the conscience of humanity, and that we will all work together to end poverty. “Let us be part of this mission. Let us be the generation that ends poverty,” said the President. The Global Citizen Festival which is an annual music festival organised by the Global Poverty Project took place at the FNB Stadium on Sunday (December 2). The project is a movement that seeks to bring an end to extreme poverty by 2030 as part of the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals.

Global Citizen works across the 17 global goals including food and nutrition, water and sanitation, girls and women, the environment, health and finance and innovation. This year, the movement saw several South Africans take part in actions and activities that seek to bring an end to the global challenges. Through the actions taken, R98 billion was raised for various causes. President Ramaphosa topped it up, bringing the figure to R100 billion. “R98 billion has been made tonight and we as South Africans will top it up to R100 billion,” said President Ramaphosa. The R100 billion coupled with 57 major commitments on education, sanitation and health is set to affect the lives of 137 368 628 people.

Adv. Shamila Batohi is the new NDPP! IEC has year to address voters roll! - Con. Court

The first female Deputy Director Of Public Prosecutions in a Province is now the first female NDPP and also the ONLY female in this picture, Advocate Shamila Batohi’s appointment is a historic moment for women in South Africa.

A

dvocate Shamila Batohi has been appointed as the new National Director of Public Prosecutions (NDPP). Her appointment makes her the first female in South Africa’s history to take the top job. Batohi will commence her duties in February 2019 after serving her notice as Senior Legal Advisor at the International Criminal Court (ICC). The announcement was made by President Cyril Ramaphosa on Tuesday (December 4) following a gruelling interview process that was a culmination of a Constitutional Court directive in August for the appointment of a new NDPP within 90 days. The court had highlighted the severe challenges that have confronted the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) in recent years, including leadership instability and a decline in public confidence in the institution. Addressing the media, President Ramaphosa said Batohi’s appointment was a response to the state of dysfunctionality and deficiencies in the NPA that were identified by the court. “I am confident that Advocate Batohi possesses all the attributes of a capable NDPP. Throughout her extensive and distinguished career, and in the course of the selection process, she has shown herself to be a fit and proper person.” The NDPP occupies a vital position in the country’s democracy, and makes an essential contribution to upholding the rule of law and ensuring the efficiency and integrity of law enforcement. “At this moment in our history, as we address matters that South Africans are most concerned about – such as state capture, corruption and widespread crime – our country needs a National

Prosecuting Authority that is above reproach in the performance of its mandate and that enjoys the confidence of the public. “The NDPP must ensure that the [NPA] exercises its functions without fear, favour or prejudice and should not be beholden to any vested interests, whether in politics, in business or elsewhere. The NDPP needs to be able to take decisions independently and impartially,” he said. After the Constitutional Court ruling, President Ramaphosa decided to depart from previous practice of appointing the NDPP and sought the assistance of a panel of individuals from the legal fraternity and Chapter 9 institutions in recommending suitable candidates. Following a process of nominations, shortlisting and interviews that were open to the media, the advisory panel proposed five candidates for the NDPP position. Embracing the challenge, Batohi thanked the President for appointing her and the interview panel for the recommendation. “I accept with gratitude the opportunity to serve as the NDPP. My only obligation is to serve the country with humility and dignity and to the best of my ability,” she said. She defined her appointment as a historic moment for women in the country, saying it is a recognition by the President that the role of women in the pursuit of equality and justice is important. “I am confident that Advocate Batohi possesses all the attributes of a capable NDPP. Throughout her extensive and distinguished career, and in the course of the selection process, she has shown herself to be a fit and proper person.” President Ramaphosa

Batohi began her career as a junior prosecutor in the Chatsworth magistrate’s court in 1986 and steadily rose through the ranks to become the Director of Public Prosecutions in KwaZulu-Natal. She was seconded to the Investigation Task Unit established by President Nelson Mandela in 1995 and later served as the first regional head of the Directorate of Special Operations based in KwaZulu-Natal. For much of the last decade, she has served as a Senior Legal Advisor to the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court.

South Africans braved the cold weather on August 3 to cast their votes during the 2016 Municipal Elections.

T

he Electoral Commission (IEC) has welcomed a ruling by the Constitutional Court granting an extension for the Electoral Commission to update the voters’ roll with addresses for all voters to November 2019. In a statement released on Thursday (Nevember 22), the IEC said the ruling provides certainty on the status of the voters’ roll and especially those voters without addresses ahead of next year’s national and provincial elections. Earlier in the day, the Constitutional Court granted the IEC’s application for the extension of the finalisation of the voters roll. In 2016, the court gave the IEC until June 2018 to finalise the roll. However, in May the elections agency made an urgent application for an extension of the suspension of an order. “The judgment will greatly assist the Electoral Commission in ensuring the elections are free and fair,” IEC spokesperson Kate Bapela said. She said the IEC remained committed to meeting the conditions set by the Constitutional Court including that voters without addresses provide their address prior to voting as well as periodical reporting. “The Electoral Commission hopes the ruling will provide additional impetus and encouragement to all voters to come forward to provide and update their address details during the 26 – 27 January final registration weekend and other opportunities during the upcoming election period,” she said. The Click, Check and Confirm

portal on the website is available for voters to provide their addresses ahead of the registration weekend. Citizens can verify their registration information online at www.elections. org.za/regweekend/. “The Electoral Commission remains committed to meeting its Constitutional obligations in maintaining a voters’ roll that is accurate, up-to-date and inclusive of as many eligible voters as possible and calls on all stakeholders including political parties, voters, civil society and others to work together in achieving this objective.” The Commission chairperson, Glen Mashinini confirmed that the 2019 general elections will most likely be held in May next year. Mashinini said President Cyril Ramaphosa recently indicated his intention to proclaim elections before the end of May next year but is expected to announce the exact date in due course. In terms of the Constitution, the term of the current National Assembly and provincial legislatures ends on 6 May 2019 and elections must be held within 90 days thereafter.

There are currently 26.1 million registered voters on the national common voters’ roll. The IEC chair hoped that at least one million new voters would be added to the voters’ roll ahead of the 2019 elections. Mashinini said the voter registration will also be conducted in January in correctional centres around the country to allow prisoners to exercise their right to vote.

A step closer towards land expropriation!

A

fter a debate that lasted for over 70 minutes, a majority of the Members of Parliament in the National Assembly have voted in favour of the adoption of a report of the Constitutional Review Committee on the review of Section 25 of the Constitution. Despite opposition from the DA, IFP, ACDP, FF Plus and COPE, among others, the report was supported by a majority of the parties. The report was adopted after 209 MPs voted for the report to be adopted, while 91 voted against the adoption. There were no abstentions. Ahead of the vote, the National Assembly heard how 449 552 authentic written submissions were made on the proposal for the Constitution to be amended to allow for the expropriation of land without compensation. Stan Maila, who was a co-chairperson for the Joint Constitutional Review Committee, adopted the Bill and referred it to the National Assembly earlier this month. He said while the process was not a referendum, it was noted that 65% of the written submission were in opposition of the amendment.

He said, however, that in light of the process not being a referendum, the amount of people against the amendment of the Constitution was not relevant. The adoption of the report comes after a protracted public consultation process, followed by country-wide public hearings, which saw people from all walks of life making written and oral submissions. After the positive resolution from the House on Thursday (December 6), the report must be forwarded to either a Portfolio Committee or an ad hoc committee, which will convene to determine its programme going forward. With the Constitution having been amended 17 times before, this is the first time that an amendment will be made on a section in the Bill of Rights, and this will necessitate for an intensive public consultation process to take place. That committee is bound to a draft Bill which will be issued out for 30 days for the public to comment and then after the 30 days, they will reconvene and set up a proper programme. Parliament will thereafter issue a proposed Bill to members of the public to amend Section 25 of the Constitution.

National Minimum Wage Bill now official! MZANSI EMPLOYEES WILL SOON EARN FROM R20 PER HOUR = ABOUT R3500 PER MONTH!

P

resident Cyril Ramaphosa has signed into law the National Minimum Wage Bill which sets an historic precedent in the protection of low-earning workers and provides a platform for reducing inequality in society and decreasing huge disparities in income in the national labour market. The National Minimum Wage Act will come into force on a date to be determined by the President by proclamation. The Act sets a floor of R20 per hour for the majority of the country’s workers, which will raise the earnings of an estimated six million South Africans – more than half of the labour force - who earn below this level at present. The National Minimum Wage Act sets South Africa’s first national minimum wage at R20 an hour – equivalent to R3 500 per month, depending on the number of hours worked – and creates a phase-in period for farm workers, forestry workers, domestic workers, welfare sector and care workers, due to their vulnerability to disemployment. The President’s signing of the new law comes four years, to the month, after the National Economic Development and Labour Council (Nedlac) first began deliberations on the protection of low-paid workers; fair and effective competition in the labour market, and the challenges of

labour instability, caused by violent strikes and the duration of strikes, and wage inequality. Following these deliberations and recommendations by an advisory panel chaired by Prof Imraan Valodia of the University of the Witwatersrand, President Ramaphosa has also assented to the Basic Conditions of Employment Amendment Bill and Labour Relations Amendment Bill which were negotiated by Nedlac at the same time as the National Minimum Wage. Taken together, these Bills introduce a National Minimum Wage and provide for the technical arrangements needed to support implementation The National Minimum Wage Act recognises South Africa as one of the most unequal societies and notes the need to eradicate poverty and inequality. President Ramaphosa has reiterated his appreciation to all stakeholders engaged in the development of the legislation for their focus on creating a new dispensation for the country’s most vulnerable workers and for bringing South Africa into line with international best practice. The President has also underscored that while national minimum wage will not end income inequality, it provides a firm and unassailable foundation – which is agreed to by all social partners – from which to advance the struggle for a living wage.

Better Days EP out now!

R

Load-shedding could not stop Maghandi!

T

he saying that goes: ‘stars can’t shine without darkness’ clearly described the moment when Mazz Maghandi launched his first solo project, titled Dawn Of a New Era, on Saturday evening (December 1). The bad weather and electricity load-shedding in Ratanda could not stop the determined fans and music lovers to converge and celebrate local talent. The launch was held at eCar Wash (Extension 26) organized with a great line-up of djs and hip-hop artists. But due to the power cuts, most performances did not happen. In the midst of the darkness and little possibility of power being restored on time, Kgosana “Mazz

Maghandi” Mazibuko and his team did the impossible. When guests and fans heard Maghandi’s music play the speakers of a car, they got up and joined the artist in song and cheers. Mazz Maghandi poured his heart out in this 10-track project. Some of the fan favourites like Kahleni Bo (produced by Kowbey Earlay), Summer Fever (produced by Owzito) and Othandweni (featuring Pastor Bae) are featured on the EP. The dynamic rap style by Mazibuko is clearly on a league of its own. The rapper can easily move from English verses to IsiZulu punchlines in one track. Tracks like Do The Most (produced by Hectik) and Mina Ngiyala (produced by Dnizy) are very motivational and speak to all who are

on their everyday hustle. Maghandi’s songs have been playlisted on major and local radio stations, so expect to hear more about him on other platforms as the artist plans to promote his EP in the coming year. Despite the unfortunate natural circumstances that occurred during the launch, everyone present had an unforgettable experience and will surely become a great tale when one day Mazz Maghandi has reached his pinnacle in the music industry. The Dawn Of a New Era EP by Mazz Maghandi is available for download on SoundCloud, AudioMack and on disc at R80 each. Visit the artist’s Facebook page (Mazz Maghandi) for more information.

atanda’s very own kwaito sensation, BK Supremo, has officially released his newest project titled Better Days EP. The six track music journey is a perfect way to open anyone’s festive season holidays. The EP features quality sounds and beats, produced by Owzito (real name Tshepo Nkutha) that blend modern party vibe with the classic kwaito music tempo. Cornelius Suping better known as ”BK Supremo” is no stranger on the music scene he’s also known from where he made his mark by participated in the 2014 Gumba Fest Competition hosted by Dj Tira (Afrotainment) where he rocked the Newcastle Crowd with his hit song “Bula Boot”. The first track from the Better Days EP, Abangani Bam, is a memorable summer hit that promises to take the young talent places. The single was recently played on Lesedi FM’s ReaKubeletsa Kasi’s Finest, Kwaito Djs also play this single on their sets like Dj Fisha-Fasha’s radio mixes and on Dj Miss T kwaito mixes. The creative genius beatmaker, Owzito provided a catalogue of sounds that BK Supremo has laced with his flows and lyrics. Most of the songs have a easy-to-sing hook (chorus) and are made for the partygoers and everyone with feel for kwaito music. BK Supremo is a proudly South African versatile artist, musician, songwriter, entertainer, who was born and raised in the streets of Ratanda township. Supremo is one of those freshest artists to come out from the township who’s aiming to bring some fresh breath of Mzansi flavour through his music. Like any other artist Supremo developed the love and passion for music in his early age back then during his high school days with his friends. Back in 2009, Supremo and his friends decided to form a hip hop group and named it after their township where they come from which is Ratanda and because they were bunch of rockers they called their group ‘Ratanda Force’. Another memorable song is Ziwa Futhi (featuring Owzito) is certainly made for the movers and shakers ekasi who love a good time. Released in November, the Better Days EP has featured artists like Magnet, Blue Scale and Owzito.

South Africa has 19 functional national parks in seven of the nine provinces of South Africa with a total area of just over 4 million hectares. SAN Parks manages these parks, comprising 67% of the protected areas under state management. In the last two decades, seven new national parks have been established, totalling over 700 000 hectares, with much of this being in the under conserved biomes such as the Succulent Karoo and Fynbos.

Heartbreak as Super Falcons sink Banyana!

N

igeria’s Super Falcons beat Banyana Banyana 4-3 in a penalty shoot out after the two teams were deadlocked 0-0 after 120 minutes of gruelling football in a final played in Accra, Ghana on Saturday afternoon (December 1). This means that Nigeria are nine-time African Women Cup of Nations (AWCON) champions. While Banyana Banyana will be proud of their achievements, losing to Nigeria is always something South Africa generally doesn’t take lightly. Noko Matlou, Mpumi Nyandeni and Mamello Mkhabane all scored for the South Africans from the spot while Lebogang Ramalepe and Linda Motlhalo missed to hand the Super Falcons yet another continental title. The match started in two teams’ typical fashion with Banyana Banyana keeping possession for long periods while the physically imposing Nigerians tried to muscle their way through. Leandra Smeda was the first to have an attempt on goal but her long range efforts sailed

over the bar. Busisiwe Ndimeni then saw her long range shot tipped over the bar by the Nigerian keeper Oluehi Tochukwu as South Africa pressed forward. It was a war of attrition in the midfield with both teams giving very little away. Nigeria could have taken the lead when they were awarded a penalty in the 75th minute after the referee adjudged that Kaylin Swart had committed a foul in the box but Asat Oshoala’s tame effort went wide as the match remained deadlocked.As the match went into extra time, both teams looked visibly fatigued but it was South Africa that fashioned better scoring chances with Thembi Kgatlana’s shot well saved by Tochukwu. The match then went to penalty shoot-out where the Nigerians eventually won 4-3. It was a bitter pill to swallow for the Mzansi team who were the better side throughout the normal playing time. In fact, Banyana Banyana played some scintillating football throughout this AWCON tournament in Ghana and will feel hard done by the final result, but such is football.
