Dear Sir / Mam
UNFORTUNATELLY we CANNOT keep quiet about this anymore and now need your INVESTIGATION in to this VERY SERIOUS MATTER.
The PREMIER of the WESTERN CAPE, in SOUTH AFRICA, HELEN ZILLE, who is a member of the official opposition party, the DEMOCRATIC ALLIANCE (DA) was accused that she used money from the WESTERN CAPE GOVERNMENT, only province in SA govern by the DA and which the SA media does not want to inform ALL South Africans about.
This serious matter ONLY reached ONE news institution in SOUTH AFRICA and that was channel ANN7 (Channel 405 on DStv). This premier is ALSO under investigation for making RACIST REMARKS on social media by her OWN party. Ther last words we take note of was yesterday, in the AFRIKAANS SUNDAY NEWSAPER, RAPPORT, which report that the DA wants "SETTLE" to regarding this matter. RAPPORT is also very much PRO DA / ZILLE!
Zille was heavily involved in the Black Sash movement during the 1980s. She served on the regional and national executives of the organisation, and was also vice-chair of the End Conscription Campaign in the Western Cape. During this time, she was arrested for being in a "group area" without a permit, and received a suspended prison sentence. Zille and her husband later offered their home as a safe house for political activists during the 1986 State of Emergency, and she was temporarily forced into hiding with their two-year-old son.
An investigation by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism revealed the details of the multimillion-pound operation. Bell Pottinger is understood to have been funded some $540 million from the US Department of Defence (DoD) for five contracts from May 2007 to December 2011, according to The Times and the Bureau of Investigative Journalism. Lord Bell confirmed Bell Pottinger reported to the Pentagon, the CIA and the U.S. National Security Council on its work in Iraq.
media/articles/thumb/ The World Bank has approved a US$ 3.75 billion loan to Eskom, which will be used to complete the 4800 MW Medupi coal-fired power plant in South Africa. The loan will ease the country?s power shortages and help it to achieve a reliable energy supply.
Dear Hannah, attached for the President is a new report by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) about energy poverty and ways in which businesses, governments, and NGOs can help expand access to energy. Depending on the answers to several major questions - funding, deliverables, timeline, partners, etc - and speaking very broadly, the issue of energy poverty is one on which WJC probably could play an even larger role, reinforcing his dual / long-standing work on energy / climate issues and poverty issues, and equally importantly, applying his unparalleled global stature to expand work on an issue that impacts billions of lives in fundamental ways but often unfortunately gets far less attention / investment from senior-level folks than other things like climate policy negotiations.
Jointly with Eskom, Vattenfall and others, the WBCSD is a founding
member of the Energy Access Partnership (EAP), a not-for-profit
company to accelerate energy access in rural Africa, based in
