SHOOTING SELF IN FOOT: The recent mining gathering in Cape Town once again highlighted the failure of government and its State-owned companies to provide the policy, administrative and infrastructure frameworks and capacity needed to take full advantage of existing mining activity, as well as to stimulate the exploration needed to unlock the next generation of critical minerals. Collapsing rail and power networks, together with dismal law enforcement, saw the country missing out on the most recent commodity boom. And the lack of a functional cadastre means that it could well miss out on the next one too.

SINKING FEELING: Given internal ANC political dynamics, it looks like it will be difficult to reverse the decision to move the large State-owned enterprises from the Department of Public Enterprises to their line departments. For Eskom, such a shift is particularly problematic, as it will further blur the policy lines between what is good for Eskom as opposed to the electricity supply industry as a whole – and there is a clear divergence. From a governance perspective, it’s akin to moving the deck chairs while the ship sinks.

NOWHERE TO HIDE

This year’s FIFA World Cup has had its fair share of upsets, which have deflated the egos of some of the bigger teams. The performance of the South African economy in 2022 has been equally deflating. The year started with hopes for a solid recovery following two years of Covid disruption. However, loadshedding, devastating flooding and rising crime, including mafia-style heists, have all taken a damaging toll.

JOURNEY ENDS & BEGINS: The scrapping of e-tolls became inevitable when there was massive civil disobedience, led by the well-organised civil society grouping initially know as Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance, or OUTA, which later transitioned to become the Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse. The resistance weakened the will of the political authorities to enforce the scheme. What is less inevitable, however, is whether the Gauteng authorities will come up with an acceptable funding plan to both maintain and expand the vital highway network over which it has now regained control.

As South Africans, we are disconcertingly accustomed, to major changes to the value of the rand. However, the US dollar’s rampant performance in September left many other currencies quite shaken, including the British pound, whose performance was also rocked by some questionable fiscal announcements. Given the extent of the economic and financial headwinds, heightened in South Africa’s case by intense load-shedding, the ride is likely to remain quite unsettling for some time.
