Bongani Baloyi on the Future

Refreshing and to the point. With people like him in charge, the future is bright.

But, that’s just my opinion. Check the video and make up your own mind.

Especially if you’re in his age bracket (18 – 45).
I may be too old for him, but I like his style.

Thank you, Bongani, and good luck.

A Message of Hope from a Working Coalition

Nelson Mandela Bay’s 10-party coalition is now seven months old.

from a Working Coalition

And, according to executive mayor Retief Odendaal, has already notched up some remarkable wins.

Apart from keeping all partners onside in reputably the largest governing coalition on earth.

Focused maintenance and fast-tracking of existing projects have removed the very real threat of the city’s taps running dry.

The Democratic Alliance, with 48 seats, dwarves the next most prominent coalition member’s three seats.

Odendaal says a partnership approach was adopted from the get-go and is reaping dividends.

This is a template that may be applied to address instability elsewhere, especially Gauteng.

Where smaller members of coalitions complain about not being adequately respected.

Odendaal spoke to Alec Hogg of BizNews.
