How South Africa's 'Born frees' — those born after apartheid — could impact its election

27 Apr 2024  |  KUAC.org
South Africa's upcoming national elections on May 29 could see significant influence from the 'born frees,' a generation born after apartheid. Despite the African National Congress (ANC) being in power for three decades, many young South Africans are disillusioned with democracy due to high unemployment, inequality, and corruption. While some young voters like Tshepiso Mpele view voting as an endorsement of corruption, others like Unanthi Mzileni and Cameron Smith are considering participating to effect change. The election will test the potential impact of this generation on South Africa's political landscape.

South Africa's upcoming national elections on May 29 could see significant influence from the 'born frees,' a generation born after apartheid. Despite the African National Congress (ANC) being in power for three decades, many young South Africans are disillusioned with the current state of democracy, citing high unemployment, inequality, and corruption. Opinion polls suggest the ANC might fall below 50% for the first time, potentially leading to a coalition government. While some young voters express a desire to vote for change, others remain skeptical, viewing voting as an endorsement of a flawed system.

27 Apr 2024  |  WVIA Public Media
South Africa's upcoming national elections on May 29 will be a critical test for democracy, particularly for the 'born frees,' a generation that never experienced apartheid. The African National Congress (ANC), which has been in power since the end of apartheid, faces the possibility of receiving less than 50% of the vote due to corruption scandals and high youth unemployment. Tess Dooms from Rivonia Circle notes the disillusionment among young people with democracy itself. While some born frees, like Tshepiso Mpele, refuse to vote as a form of protest, others like Unanthi Mzileni and Cameron Smith are considering voting, despite the unfulfilled promises of democracy. The election will be a chance for this generation to potentially change South Africa's course.

South Africa's upcoming national elections on May 29 could see significant influence from the 'born frees,' a generation that grew up post-apartheid. Despite the historic transition to democracy and Nelson Mandela's presidency, the ruling African National Congress (ANC) faces disillusionment due to corruption, service delivery failures, and high youth unemployment. Opinion polls suggest the ANC may fall below 50% for the first time, potentially leading to a coalition government. Young South Africans express mixed feelings about voting, with some viewing it as an endorsement of corruption and others considering participation to realize the dream of democracy. The election will test whether this generation will turn out to vote and possibly alter the country's political trajectory.

South Africa: Taps Run Dry in Africa's Richest City

14 Mar 2024  |  allafrica.com
Johannesburg, known as Africa's richest city, is facing a severe water shortage affecting half of its supply area amid a summer heat wave. The shortage, lasting nearly two weeks, has impacted businesses and hospitals, with some unable to maintain basic hygiene practices. The crisis was triggered by a power outage at a pump station on March 3, but is also attributed to aged infrastructure and maintenance issues. Authorities have faced criticism and small protests over perceived incompetence. Johannesburg Water admitted to human error with a closed valve, which has since been opened to aid recovery. The city's water issues are occurring concurrently with a national energy crisis, characterized by frequent blackouts. Water tankers have been deployed across the city as most systems are now in recovery.

South Africa: Why South Africa Has Taken Israel to the World Court

11 Jan 2024  |  allafrica.com
The International Court of Justice is set to hold hearings on whether to issue an interim order against Israel's actions in Gaza, following South Africa's charge of genocide. South Africa's Department of International Relations and Cooperation has cited ongoing reports of crimes against humanity and potential genocide. Legal experts anticipate a lengthy process to prove genocide, but the immediate hearings seek urgent relief. The case reflects South Africa's historical solidarity with the Palestinian people, rooted in the African National Congress's own liberation struggle and its relationship with Palestinian movements. Former President Nelson Mandela's support for Palestinian freedom is highlighted, underscoring the depth of the connection.

South Africa to bring landmark case against Israel at International Court of Justice

10 Jan 2024  |  wvpe.org
South Africa is set to present a case against Israel at the International Court of Justice, accusing Israel of genocide in Gaza. Israel refutes the allegations, with a hearing scheduled for the following day. South Africa's apartheid history influences its support for Palestinians, a sentiment echoed by former President Nelson Mandela. The ANC, South Africa's ruling party, has historical ties with the Palestinian cause and has not forgotten Israel's support for the apartheid regime. Following recent conflicts, South African parliamentarians voted to suspend diplomatic ties with Israel, and President Ramaphosa used the term 'genocide' to describe Israel's actions. The case filed by South Africa alleges that Israel's actions in Gaza are genocidal, with a death toll exceeding 23,000. Legal experts suggest a ruling could take years, but the ICJ could issue an interim measure for a cease-fire, which Israel might ignore. The case highlights South Africa's influence on the global stage.

Number of Chinese Workers in Africa Drops Substantially

06 Oct 2023  |  international.thenewslens.com
The number of Chinese workers in Africa has significantly decreased, reaching its lowest level in over a decade, with only 88,371 workers recorded in 2022 compared to a peak of 263,696 in 2015. This decline is attributed to the pandemic, fluctuating oil prices, and a downscaling of China's Belt and Road Initiative. While some countries like Algeria and Angola saw the largest drops, others like the DRC, Egypt, and Zimbabwe experienced increases or stability in Chinese worker numbers. Experts suggest that while postponed projects may resume, a return to previous high levels is unlikely. The article also highlights the need for more local hiring in skilled roles within Chinese projects in Africa.

In Johannesburg, South Africa, illegal miners known as 'zama zamas' endure dangerous conditions to extract gold, often working for criminal syndicates. The industry, worth billions, has seen a rise in violence and exploitation, with recent mass gang rapes drawing international attention. Police have been accused of complicity, and President Cyril Ramaphosa has not ruled out military deployment. The situation reflects a complex mix of economic desperation, crime, and the legacy of apartheid, with some South Africans and experts calling for a regulated inclusion of artisanal miners in the industry.
