Radical transformation of the wholesale and retail sector: A call for unity in action
The SACP is seriously concerned about persisting intransigence and resistance to economic transformation in the wholesale and retail sector. The sector is dominated by a handful of oligopolies destroying co-operatives, small, micro and medium enterprises (SMMEs) and informal businesses in townships, peri-urban and rural areas. The rise of malls in these areas is also being carried out in a manner that systematically deepens the destruction of co-operatives, SMMEs and informal businesses, by means, among others, of oligopoly market conduct and collusion to conserve and heighten market dominance rather than a transformative developmental approach that ensures inclusive economic participation.
Bankorp-ABSA life-boat saga: Murky past must energetically be pursued and investigated - SACP
The SACP calls on ABSA to pay back the full amount plus interests of the bailouts provided to Bankorp by the Reserve Bank from 1985 to 1992 and thereafter from 1992 to 1995 to ABSA after the bank acquired Bankorp in April 1992: If the contents of the leaked Public Protector's report are valid. There can be no doubt that ABSA has benefited from the acquisition of Bankorp and further from the decade-long bailouts. The leaked Public Protector's report recommends that ABSA must pay back an amount of R2.25-billion that it received as part of the unlawful apartheid-era (from 1985) bailout that continued during our transition to democracy in 1994-1995.
