South Africa High Resolution Vote Concept state capture (2)

19 February 2017

The Federation of Unions of South Africa (FEDUSA) is dismayed that former Eskom Chief Executive Officer who was linked to the controversial Gupta family in former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela’s State of Capture Report has been nominated to be sworn in as a Member of Parliament (MP) for the North West Province.

In the State of Capture Report, Madonsela revealed that Molefe and Ajay Gupta, the eldest of the Gupta brothers exchanged 58 telephone conversations between August 2015 and March 2016. Cellphone records secured by Madonsela also located Molefe at or near the Guptas’ Saxonwold, Johannesburg, compound 19 times between August 5 and November 17, 2015.

The allusion to an improper relationship between Molefe and the Guptas also link him to the manipulation of an Optima mine coal supply agreement that saw the power utility silently awarding a R564 million contract to Tegeta, a company owned by the Gupta Family and President Zuma’s son Duduzane.

Although the allegations contained in the Report are yet to be tested in a court of law, FEDUSA believes that they make Molefe a highly compromised individual who should be cleared before being appointed to such a constitutionally important institution as Parliament.

SONA

 

The Federation of Unions of South Africa (Fedusa) calls on President Zuma to use his 2017 State of the Nation (SONA) on Thursday evening to underscore the need for stronger collaboration between the government, business and labour as a precondition for achieving higher inclusive economic growth for our country and creating thousands of jobs for the unemployed among us, especially the youth.

FEDUSA believes that as social partners, the leaders of government, business and labour should work towards promoting and strengthening tolerance and understanding between their respective constituencies.

Moreover, it is the collective responsibility of these leaders, to implement without any further delays, shared economic growth strategies that have been agreed between them at NEDLAC, often after long and complex negotiations, in order to address the triple challenges of poverty, unemployment and inequality that the country faces.

Broadly, our government needs to ensure policy certainty and clarity, and a regulatory environment that does not make it cumbersome for companies to make profits, create jobs and hire new people. For its part businesses should work tirelessly to raise capital for investments from domestic markets, to drive higher inclusive growth and employment creation.
