Prospects for political realignment in SA: a webinar with CRA’s Dr Frans Cronje

The upcoming elections, the Covid-19 pandemic and corruption all have the power to shape South Africa’s future.

Octagon Financial and Graviton invite you to join Menachem Kay and Dr Frans Cronje, director of the Centre for Risk Analysis, as they unpack these issues and the related impact on the country.

Weathering the storm: Prospects for political realignment in SA will look at:

  • The trends that could affect the ANC’s performance in the local and general elections of 2021 and 2024 respectively.
  • South Africa’s prospects for staging a Post-Covid-19 economic recovery.
  • The opportunities for policy reform within the ANC.
  • Cyril Ramaphosa’s odds for surviving in the ANC.
  • The government’s corruption problem and whether or not it can be solved.
  • The power of social and economic tensions to destabilise South Africa.

The webinar will provide an in-depth analysis of these forces shaping South Africa, and their implications on the country’s investment and business environments.

It will draw on closely guarded data, analysis, and polling information that is not available from any other source to provide Octagon clients with a better understanding of these landscapes.
