    WATCH: Senseless to transform a junk economy, says SACP – Independent Online

    Pretoria – Instead of preaching the gospel of the much punted radical economic transformation, the national discourse across South Africa should currently be on turning around the fortunes of the economy which was experiencing a downward spiral, the South African Communist Party (SACP) in Gauteng said on Friday.

    "Of all the issues we believe, the very first step for a radical economic transformation is to defend the sound, strong financial institutions of our country. Any radical economic transformation of a junk economy will not make sense. It will not help the poor," SACP Gauteng Secretary Jacob Mamabolo told reporters during a picket at the National Treasury in Pretoria central.

    "We don't want to radically transform a junk economy. That will not make any sense. We believe South Africans must take active interest in anything that could degenerate our country. The Guptas have got options, they can move their investments overseas. The monoplies and all other sections of monopolistic capital have alternatives. By the pressing of a button they can move their investments somewhere. Where will the poor people go when this country is finally junk?"

    Mamabolo implored all sections of the South African community to "rise" against the economic downward spiral.

    "No one is safe. That is why we are saying to people, rise and stand up now to make sure that this country is not junk. The rule of law must prevail, our governance must be sound, and we must make sure that we don't play with the economy of this country particularly using populism and cheap statements," said Mamabolo.

    "The whole alliance has raised issues about the direction our country is taking. There is massive evidence that indicates that it is indeed important that as a country, as a nation and a people we become patriotic in the sense that we must defend our national sovereignty against this country being declared yet another failed African state."

    Mamabolo led scores of SACP supporters, dancing and singing outside the National Treasury building which was tightly guarded by police officers. He said among other demands, the picketers were protesting against rampant corruption, state capture and the abuse of parastatals for private gain.

    "We are also picketing against activities of monopolistic capital such as [investments management entity] Allan Gray and CPS [Cash Paymaster Services] that are also targeting the social security network which is really the source of life for pensioners, child-headed households, people with disability, and we are here to ensure that it should never ever again happen in our country that the vulnerable and the most marginalised citizens of our community are put in a panic mode about whether they will get their social grants or not," he said.

    Mamabolo said despite the SACP picket on Friday, National Treasury officials had been instructed not to receive their memorandum of demands.

    "This is a picket we will continue to conduct every now and then. We have only decided on a picket because we are aware that they [Treasury] does not want the Communist Part here. That is why they have decided they will not receive a memorandum from us. They have instructed every official that no one must come close to the SACP," he said.

    "We know why they are scared. It is because we always tell the truth even if it hurts. We will not be handing over any memorandum. We are not worried about whether they snub us or not. We are here . We will be here in May, in July and until April next year. Whether they come to receive our memorandum or not, they can see and hear our message through our posters. We don't even trust they would address our memorandum properly."

    Give Gigaba time – Kganyago – Independent Online

    Johannesburg - South Africa’s newly appointed Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba should be given time to settle into the job before being judged on his performance, according to central bank Governor Lesetja Kganyago.

    President Jacob Zuma’s decision to fire Pravin Gordhan as finance minister hasn’t affected ties between the central bank and the National Treasury, Kganyago said in an interview on Thursday in Washington.

    The minister “needs to be given time to create the rapport with his team at the Treasury,” he said. “It’s a very competent team and hopefully he is able to hold on to that team.”

    The remarks seek to ease concern that Gordhan’s dismissal will affect the country’s fiscal and economic policies. The cabinet reshuffle at the end of March prompted S&P Global Ratings and Fitch Ratings Ltd. to cut South Africa’s credit rating to below investment grade, causing the rand to weaken against the dollar. While the currency has since trimmed its losses as investors sought higher emerging-market yields, the downgrades risk undermining investor confidence in Africa’s most-industrialized economy.

    Policy intact

    Gigaba plans to meet with Moody’s Investors Service during his current visit to the U.S. to reassure the ratings company that fiscal policy won’t change, the minister said this week. Moody’s placed South Africa on review for a downgrade after Gordhan was fired. Treasury Director-General Lungisa Fuzile has since announced he will step down next month.

    Kganyago, a former head of the Treasury, said he’s already held two “very cordial, very extensive” meetings with the finance minister and his deputy to discuss the challenges facing the economy.

    “We have got a long relationship,” Kganyago said of Gigaba. “What you always need in a minister of finance, it’s not an economic guru, you need someone who knows the politics. The Treasury is endowed with a depth of talent, capable of putting together fiscal options.”

    The rand on Thursday reached its strongest level against the dollar since the reshuffle after having erased its 10 percent gain for the year. It gained 0.1 percent to 13.1431 per dollar by 1:15 p.m. in Johannesburg on Friday.

    Kganyago and Gigaba are in charge of reviving an economy that the World Bank expects to expand less than 1 percent for the second year in a row. The central bank, however, is sticking to its forecast of a 1.2 percent expansion for now, the governor said.

    “We still have a view of an economy that it’s improving but still in a low-growth trap,” he said. The Monetary Policy Committee will “take stock” of the latest economic developments when it meets again in May, he said.

    The MPC has kept the benchmark interest rate unchanged since last March after raising it by 200 basis points to 7 percent over two years to curb consumer prices. Inflation eased in March to 6.1 percent, the lowest level in six months and just outside the upper end of the central bank’s target band.

    The monetary policy stance “strikes the necessary balance between dealing with inflation and supporting the nascent economic recovery,” Kganyago said.
