Loadshedding and lockdown expose paperthin democracy

A renewed round of loadshedding was implemented amidst heavy rains during the week of the 11th of April. During March, government also decided to formalise “temporary” lockdown restrictions into permanent regulations issued by the labour and health departments. These will be in operation indefinitely if adopted. What can this tell us about the state of South African democracy?

Temba Nolutshungu addressed and networked with Sweden’s techno delegation to South Africa during their five-day visit and symposium. His three presentations were focused primarily on the policy work of the FMF and the Khaya Lam property titling project. The delegation also visited Bitprop’s Khayalitsha project where flats-to-let are being constructed in the yards of property owners (see second photo below).
