Chair: Joel Kibazo, Founding Partner, JK Associates


President Zuma's victory in ANC leadership election provides some certainty from which to assess South Africa's prospects. The need to satisfy growing economic and social discontent whilst maintaining balanced economic growth has become ever harder, particularly in the face of popular perceptions of corruption, elitism and poor service delivery from the bottom to the very top of South African society. Fiona Forde will offer insights on these challenges and where they might lead South Africa over the coming years.
