PRAVIN GORDHAN RUNS A CABAL AND OPERATES A PARALLEL STATE APPARATUS IN SOUTH AFRICA.

MINISTER PRAVIN GORDHAN RUNS A CABAL AND OPERATES A PARALLEL STATE APPARATUS IN SOUTH AFRICA. 

Floyd Shivambu 

Immediately after the Economic Freedom Fighters’ (EFF) Press Conference, on Tuesday, 16thOctober 2018, which dispelled the allegations that the EFF and its Deputy President, Floyd Shivambu, received money from the VBS Mutual Bank as part of the reported; “Great Bank Heist”, one of Minister Pravin Gordhan’s protégés sent me a direct text message. Amongst other things it said; “with due respect Floyd, this obsession with PG or any individual in the ANC will change the character of the EFF”. My prompt response to this nonsensical and out of context text message was; “I honestly don’t care about that and suggest that you should share that with your friend, Pravin Gordhan”.

Towards the creation of State Banks: From rhetoric to practice

Floyd Shivambu

On 25 April 2018, the South African State gazetted a notice which officially commences a process that seeks to amend the Banks Act. The Government Gazette Number 211 of 2018 aptly illustrates that, “The Banks Act, 1990 (Act No. 94 of 1990) (‘Banks Act’), among other things, imposes certain requirements which an institution must comply with before it may carry on the business of a bank or in the lawful carrying on of the business of a bank.
