President Cyril Ramaphosa has managed to convincingly tip the balance of power in the top structures of South Africa’s governing African National ... Congress in his favour, with last week's suspension of the party’s secretary general, Ace Magashule, who on 13 May moved to court to challenge his suspension.
In February, the president’s office issued statutory instrument 50. It forces the Chilonga inhabitants to vacate the land they traditionally used to make way for a white-owned dairy company named Dendairy. It intends to use the land to grow grass for cows.
The residents say the move is unfair, but the government maintains that the lands are communal and belong to the state.
