Wednesday, June 14, 2017

Pretoria - Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa is back in the National Assembly today to answer his last oral questions for this term of Parliament.   

Among others, the Deputy President is expected to reflect on efforts to strengthen state-owned enterprises.

This is in line with recommendations of the Presidential Review Commission on state-owned enterprises with a view to improving governance, stabilising finances, increasing productivity and ensuring they contribute to the country’s developmental agenda.

The Presidency said Deputy President Ramaphosa will also reflect on the recent high levels of violence against women and children.

“Deputy President Ramaphosa is expected to reassure the nation of measures underway through various ministries and civil society to eliminate violence against women and children. These are anchored on the Integrated Plan of Action to fight Gender-based Violence,” spokesperson Ronnie Mamoepa said on Wednesday.

The Deputy President will further assure Parliament that government remains committed to rebuilding trust among social partners and social cohesion in communities. 

Deputy President Ramaphosa is also expected to reflect on the successes of the recently-held World Economic Forum (Africa) and its impact on challenges including poverty, under-development and inequality facing the country and indeed the entire African continent. -
