Inside the SAA battle: Throwing toys and bugging boardrooms

As turmoil continues over the future of South African Airways, the South African Cabin Crew Association and the National Union of Mineworkers of South Africa have linked the resignation of SAA’s CEO to a privatisation agenda and state capture. “‘We want to be upfront that we have always understood that there has been an agenda to privatise the SOEs and SAA is not immune to this,’ the statement said, while also seeking to link Gordhan to what it said is a Rothschild agenda to privatise SOEs. It also said: ‘What has consistently strengthened this belief is that in all SOEs, if Rothschild is not directly involved in the boards, it acts as consultants and/or advisers. The big question, therefore, is: how is its meddling in the affairs of SOEs any different from the previous meddling of the Guptas, which the country is still recovering from?’”

History RePPPeated - How public private partnerships are failing

Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) are increasingly being promoted as the solution to the shortfall in financing needed to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Economic infrastructure, such as railways, roads, airports and ports, but also key services such as health, education, water and electricity are being delivered through PPPs in both the global north and south. This report gives an in-depth, evidence-based analysis of the impact of 10 PPP projects that have taken place across four continents, in both developed and developing countries. These case studies build on research conducted by civil society experts in recent years and have been written by the people who often work with and around the communities affected by these projects.
