"cyril ramaphosa" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Foreign Desk

"It is a question to which there are very few imaginable innocent answers. Why do you have a fortune in cash stuffed into the cushions of your sofa? If you happen to find yourself being asked it while serving as president of your country, your potential selection of reassuring responses is narrowed still further. On balance, you might be best off pointing excitedly at a squirrel, and legging it for the fire escape while you're interrogators are distracted. Such is the public relations challenge which has been besetting Cyril ramaphosa president of South Africa for some months now and which events this week may be bringing to some sort of resolution. A report by an independent expert panel commissioned by South Africa's parliament to get to the bottom of matters was dispiriting reading for the president. The report accused him of tax evasion, holding undeclared foreign currency, failing to inform police of a robbery and gross misuse of state resources, and suggested that this all amounted to grounds for impeachment at the very least. Before we embark on a brisk recap of how we got here and speculate wildly on what might occur next, we should note that president ramaphosa denies absolutely everything. I deny that any form of money laundering, and I've said it more publicly that it was proceeds of sale or game. So. Back in June, a former director general of South Africa's state security agency, South Africa's answer to MI 5, filed a criminal complaint against the president. Arthur Fraser, for it was he alleged that in February 2020 thieves tipped off by a domestic servant had broken into the president's private residence on parlor parlor, a game farm owned by ramaphosa and stolen somewhere north of 4 million U.S. dollars in banknotes, which had been stuffed into sofa cushions and that ramaphosa had not reported the crime to the police. The cash to the reserve bank or the means by which he had come by it to the pertinent tax authorities. Even more weirdly, Fraser alleged that ramaphosa had subsequently engaged presidential security officers to track down the thieves and pay them to keep their yaps shut. President ramaphosa's response to the allegations raised rather more questions than at answered. Everybody knew that president ramaphosa is a rich man before going into politics, he cleaned up in mining and cattle farming among other interests. Ramaphosa claimed that rather than the millions claimed to have been looted, it was a mere $580,000 or so. An enormous amount of money to be sure, but maybe an amount someone as hilariously wealthy as Rama posa could plausibly lose down the back of a couch. He said he'd received it for the sale of cows. Cows which, as a few petty fogging skeptics noted, were still grazing on his farm. A Dubai based Sudanese businessman this week said he'd paid the 580 grand, then subsequently changed his mind about the cows. He has not, as yet had his money back. Ramaphosa and his allies have also sought to discredit the president's accuser as an embittered malcontent with an axe to grind. This is fair enough inasmuch as Arthur Fraser is an embittered malcontent with an axe to grind. He is a close ally of ramaphosa's predecessor Jacob Zuma and was demoted from his role as head of the SSA by ramaphosa in 2018. Fraser is also in legal difficulties of his own, facing charges of obstructing justice relating to his role in securing a medical parole four former president Zuma, who was doing a stretch for contempt of court after refusing to appear at an inquiry into corruption. Zuma, whose parole was declared unlawful by South Africa's Supreme Court of appeal and is due back in the clink, has accused ramaphosa of being a thief and a criminal, to which ramaphosa would be entitled to retort that it takes one to no one. However, not every embittered malcontent with an axe to grind is wrong, and ramaphosa's defenses of his conduct to date have been drawn very much from the dog ate my homework end of the spectrum of excuses. I didn't do it. Which brings us to what might happen next. Parliament was supposed to debate the report this week, but this has been punted to next Tuesday to give MPs time to get to Cape Town. In theory, parliament could impeach from a poster but ramaphosa's party, the African National Congress, which has governed South Africa for 28 years, has already said it won't vote for any such motion. If you are saying we must impeach our impinge ourselves, imagine if we made it so easy for the president to be removed from positions of responsibility for labor. Ramaphosa could and arguably should resign, but appears determined on toughing it out, calling for a judicial review of the report into what has become known as farmgate. He may also have calculated that as long as he stays president, it will be difficult to prosecute him, should anyone fancy their chances. The court may well decide that it would be futile, the photo to adjudicate on the report when parliament, as the primary body to whom the report was handed, has rejected that report. And of course, it is within parliament's rumor to do so because that report is a mere guide or advisory to parliament and not binding. The ANC's annual national conference begins next week. He has already signaled his intention to stand for reelection as party leader. It is, however, possible that the ANC have miscalculated parties which have grown complacent on three decades of uninterrupted power often do. And South Africans are beset by crime, social unrest, blackouts, and bad governance. As a consequence, South Africa is not quite the one party state. It has generally been since the end of apartheid. Local elections this time last year saw the ANC's vote share dip below 50% for the first time. Amid growing and quite reasonable anger at the ANC's ineptitude and corruption. The African National Congress into disrepute. He has got serious prima fake matters to answer as the independent panel has indicated with the findings. Therefore, Sarah ramaphosa, if he had any integrity, would have stepped down to avoid the African National Congress and the government of South Africa to face the kind of embarrassment that is causing for all of us. A perception that the ANC is covering up corruption ineptly might prove an insult too far from monocle 24, I'm Andrew mullet.

"Battling a fast increasing. Surge of covid nineteen cases south africa has reintroduced tough restrictions including a ban on alcohol sales and an extended nightly curfew. The delta variant i discovered in india appears to be driving. South africa's new increase. President cyril ramaphosa said on sunday night announcing the return to strict measures south africa recorded more than fifteen thousand new cases on sunday including one hundred and twenty. Two deaths bringing its total fatalities to near sixty thousand. Go tang the country's most populous province which includes the largest city johannesburg and the capital pretoria had the brunt of the current surge accounting for about sixty six percent of new infections health. Authorities are concerned that the country's eight other provinces likely to soon see spikes in cases to match those in go tang well. Hospitals are running short of covid nineteen beds and patients being taken to health facilities in other provinces neighboring zimbabwe namibia and mozambique also fighting growing numbers of cases hospitalizations and deaths south africa's vaccination rate is slowly picking up speed by sunday. Two point seven million people had received at least one jab more than nine hundred and fifty thousand of south africa's one point two five million healthcare workers have been vaccinated said ramaphosa as a new surge of the disease. Sweeps across africa's fifty four countries about one percent of the continents.

Robert Mugabe will have private burial at national Heroes' Acre

"Last week's death of former former Zimbabwean tyrant Robert Mugabe at the age of ninety five presented his country with a problem if from the worst problem with which Mugabe presented Zimbabwe during he's later decades of deranged misrule. How does one commemorate the passing of a figure who was both hero and villain in Mugabe's case indeed both with the founder and destroyer of his nation after an amount of agonizing it has now been decided that Mugabe will be interred in the National Heroes Acre in Harare Laura a public memorial ceremony will be held on Sunday one joined in the studio with more on this bond monocle twenty regular Georgina Godwin Georgina as our listeners are probably aware you are yourself Zimbabwean and I remember we spoke at the time of Mugabe's removal by coup data at how we had that atwells that he was no longer enough and what an I guess a big mental adjustment that was for generations of Zimbabweans. How are we is it adjusting to the fact that he's no longer here at all. You know I think people feel slightly cheated in a way that he went out really with a bit of a whimper not a bang that we and indeed he probably expected and he's no longer there but I gather that in his last few months. He wasn't all there mentally anyway. If you look at the photograph few months well I I mean from when he started wearing you know dribbles and chuck suits but and obviously as you point out his his last years were were he was in the grip of definitely something probably dementia but for him to be dead is something that's quite odd because what you're seeing in Zimbabwe's as you alluded to is people wanting still to hate him but also really wanting to acknowledge the role that he played in in in the formations the country and say so there's quite a lot of them big dichotomy between how people feel because us as I think we discussed at the time if Mugabe is say had sort of cheerfully stepped down from office circa the late eighties and sort of idled into a retirement of giving elections and writing books he would be regarded as one of the twentieth century's heroic figures wouldn't they completely and utterly and he would have got a hero's funeral. Oh hang on the funeral which does prompt the question though that who who turns up for Mugabe's Hero's funeral thousands of people have been attending the lying in state. At referrers stadium in Harari who still is Mugabe's constituency well at the formal proceedings. You'll have a lot of heads of state state. I think Cyril Ramaphosa is coming from South Africa and various other people from from around the continent impacts further afield but in terms of ordinary people what generally happens in in in situations like this is that people have Boston and their promised food and those are the two things that people have that they don't have any fuel in Zimbabwe so they wouldn't be able to get there by themselves. They don't have the money money for bus fare and they're desperate to eat so if you promise people all of that they will turn up much. I mean I'm sympathetic to an extent extent or to this extent with the current Zimbabwean government. You have to acknowledge his passing some how you have to do something if not not what is being done what other suggestions have people made there was an argument of course to whether he should be buried in National Heroes Acre. But where else would you put him well. He is family. It appeared wanted him buried in his home area of Qatar which is where he comes from and I think would have been one way around it but it appears that the government was really pushing to have him in heroes. Acre which apparently he had not wanted himself. There was another really interesting piece of not not legislation but something else he put in his will. I think which was that his wife Grace Mugabe was to stay with the casket at all times until he was buried therefore what he's doing doing that is guaranteeing her starring role in his final Hurrah. Do you get the sense that the current government and we should remind ourselves that the current President Emmerson Mnangagwa was for many years Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe's kind of conciliatory if you will are they trying to reanimate the myth of Mugabe the liberator to to their own ends. I think that that would certainly serve a purpose that the end but I mean at the same time time. Mugabe's very useful is somebody that you can up lay all the blame on and say look it wasn't us it was the previous guy where clean we're going forward and of course that's what the what Managua A and his cronies would like us to think that this is a completely new dispensation. It really isn't make no mistake.

Tarnished ANC seeks re-election in South Africa

"It's been twenty five years in South Africans voted in the first democratic election, then the African National Congress almost sixty percent of the votes next Wednesday on may eight South Africans will vote again. But this time the eighties image has been tarnished. And they will struggle to get anywhere near sixty percent of the vote. Joining me on the line from Johannesburg his of cultural, the F T, South Africa correspondent and within the as David pulling FT's Africa editor Joseph what are the toll sending us? The poster telling us that this will be the most competitive election in South Africa's post-apartheid democratic history. But that does not mean the agency's majority which has kept for twenty five years is in any real danger most posters. Most analysts believe the ANC will probably get a majority all fifty five to sixty percent. That said the most recent poll by the institute of Rhys relations. I think tank in South Africa has put the D one percent support assuming tunnel of about seventy two percent. That is a bit of a shocker it's never been that close before an action. So innocence, we all into new territory, David, you recently rotate rollicking lunch with the teacher and beween either South African Finance Minister Winnie or squad plaintively in that interview. What did people expect NC to achieve in twenty five years? A quarter of a century is not an insignificant amount of time is the simply refusing to take responsibility or is there merit in. What in bologna said? I think as usual with these questions the answer is is. Yes, or no, I think certainly the NC takes responsibility for the last nine years of Jacob Zuma when it became an increasingly corrupt party bereft of policies was not producing any growth. Even before that. I think it's been slow to produce the kind of social transformation. The South African particularly black South Africans expected. It's been a part of this created a pretty thin middle class an Israeli kept everyone else happy on kind of social welfare payments. And it was once said to me that the ANC actually become the party of the unemployed, and there is some truth to that. However, we should also acknowledge the poisonous legacy overpass site, which has been extraordinarily difficult to overcome. This wasn't like a normal African country that booted out white colonialists and could then get on with the job. And of course, many black African countries have not done, particularly well at that either. But this was a society that was hugely divided along racial lines. One only needs to look at the school system the school system that was actually literally divided on racial lines. When the apartheid education policy was to keep black students of Hugh is of wood and drawers of water a deliberate policy to keep them poor. Or an uneducated. And now that's really been replaced by an education system, where access to money is everything. Now, again, the ANC has not done nearly as well at improving the public education system as it should have done, and I would say that that's huge failing. So they're in in a sense in nutshell. You have the enormous poisonous legacy that the NC is grappling with and some of the very real failings that I think, you know, we can point a finger and say, yes, the ANC a party in which we had tremendous hope twenty five years ago has not lived up to experts stations Joseph David touched on one of the greatest problems with NC, and it was the reign of Jacob Zuma. And it's been argued that if Cyril Ramaphosa exceeds expectations and wins a big majority next week he'll have the power to turf out soon as cronies and tackle groups property, but is a slightly given his tolerance of some very questionable characters in both his cabinets and within the ANC hierarchy the first thing to bear in mind. Is that suffer is a parliamentary system, sir? Ramaphosa won't be directly elected. What will happen after the general election is parliament over for the president overseas? NC's hoping that will be where I'm opposed, but the dilemma for South African vote is if you don't like the ANC which has been taken over by cronies of Jacob Zuma who occupy quite senior policy positions, even though that patron is long gone from the presidency. You've got cross dot nine DNC to get what will hope for the I reformist agenda under Ramaphosa speaking of twos in the most days before the elections. But I think he has done a pretty good job in the years since he's taken over from Jacob Zuma, the has replaced people in state institutions, which declined under his predecessor. But they do have a lot of skepticism about the constraints that will be on him within the NC beyond the election. David's South Africa's the most unequal society earth, and that gap has. One and agency rule. Critics claim that black economic empowerment and ANC policy has benefited a few politically connected blacks, while the rest of the black majority just gets poorer official unemployment is twenty-seven percent. But in reality is probably closer to forty percents is unemployment and inequality ticking time bomb for South Africa and the NC. Yes, I think it is. I mean, we've seen all over Africa youth unemployed rising up we saw it. Most recently in a sense in sedan with Basheer was booted out. I mean in a sense of South African population has been very patient. But I don't think that can go on forever. 'cause the problem is that you have these two economies you have what Martin wolf once called bell. India? You have a very wealthy white economy. This inherited the end of apartheid surrounded by very poor black one and trying to bridge that gap is not particularly easy because you have a black population. That wants an expects the living standards of those that sees around them in the white minority. And yet, they lack the productivity and skills generally through absoulutely, no fault of their own, of course to achieve that.
