The State of The Nation

Get an in-depth assessment of the road ahead for South Africa, following the bruising battles at Mangaung. Two of our most respected analysts, Justice Malala and Clem Sunter will be discussing the social, economic and political issues that are currently affecting South Africa and the world and what measures need to be taken to solve them at the State Of The Nation breakfast.

The world's political axis is continually shifting and hot on the heels of the re-election of Barack Obama as President of the United States of America in a brutally transparent election, the ANC will choose their leader for the next five years based on the will of only 400 delegates in smoke filled rooms. Has democracy been served, or will this result in another five years of moribund non-leadership?

On the economic front, the Euro currency has survived for now and eased economic tensions, the USA is heading towards the "fiscal cliff" and China is slowing for the first time since embracing the free market. As the rest of the world is overdrawn in an attempt to grow their economies and jobs for its citizens, South Africa seems determined to make it as difficult as possible to do business, hire or fire staff and comply with the mountain of regulatory paperwork. Are we headed down the economic road to nowhere? Will our arrival at the main BRICS table prove to be our salvation?
