PosOnderwerp: Obama welcomes Rasool as ambassador August 12 2010 , 4:00:00    Thu Aug 12, 2010 10:07 pm





United States President Barack Obama has extended a warm welcome to Ebrahim Rasool, who has been appointed South African ambassador to the US. Rasool officially assumed his ambassadorial responsibilities on August 11, 2010.

In accepting Rasool’s Letter of Credence, Obama said he looked forward to a chance to further strengthen the ties between the two countries. He also gave a word of encouragement to South Africa on the successful hosting of the 2010 FIFA World Cup. "The Cup was a testament to all South Africa has achieved since 1994 and all that it - and all of Africa - has to offer," said Obama.

Rasool outlined his mandate to foster stronger interaction between SA and the US through the Co-operative Partnership initiative. The initiative, aimed at making economic development the driver of global growth, is largely based on the achievement of an enduring peace and stability in the world.

Rasool thanked the US for its role in supporting development in Africa – a continent Obama had previously referred to as "a fundamental part of our interconnected world."

"This agenda can be advanced if, amongst others, the USA supports the African Union's endorsement earlier this year of South Africa's candidature for the United Nation Security Council," added Rasool.

Obama acknowledged the areas of cooperation between the two countries, and hoped more strides would be made in the fields of health, education, climate change and trade.

Rasool has taken over from Welile Nhlapo. His appointment was hotly contested by the Democratic Alliance, claiming he had corrupt dealings with journalists while he was Premier of the Western Cape. However, there was no hint of the scandal when he presented his credentials to US.

PosOnderwerp: Rasool tapes: Zille 'eyeing' Brown    Thu Aug 12, 2010 10:09 pm

Former premier Lynne Brown said a legal process was under way to release controversial tapes which might implicate her predecessor, Ebrahim Rasool, in a cash-for-favours scandal.



Answering the ANC's Mcebisi Skwatsha on Tuesday in the legislature, Premier Helen Zille said she had had no assistance from Brown since news of the taped recording emerged in November last year.

But Brown said: "What she's not saying is that she's started a legal process against me. Her lawyers have been in consultation with my legal counsel about the tapes."

Brown refused to comment further on the issue, saying that she would first have to consult her lawyers.

The tapes and subsequent investigation will blow the lid off the ugly fight that marred the leadership battle in the provincial ANC, involving two factions led by Rasool and Skwatsha.

This as Zille announced that her officials had handed over documents to the police's commercial crimes unit detailing a trail of alleged corruption under the previous administration of Rasool.

Zille said her officials handed over the dossier, which had been completed by the provincial administration's Forensic Unit in terms of the Prevention of Corrupt Activities Act.

On Tuesday Zille said up to R80-million was believed to have been fraudulently paid out to public relations firms owned by close associates of Rasool and two former Cape Argus journalists, Ashley Smith and Joseph Aranes.

Brown was commenting on claims in the provincial legislature that she had refused to hand over the tape recordings of former Hip Hop Media executive
Vukile Pokwana.

In the tapes, recorded before last year?s general elections, Pokwana admitted that ?brown envelopes? filled with cash were handed to the two
former journalists.

Ostensibly this was for writing reports favourable to Rasool in his fight against his
political enemies in the provincial ANC.

Smith claimed in an affidavit that a public relations company owned by him was used as a front to channel money, through the awarding of tenders with the then Department of Housing and
Local Government.

Zille raised the possibility of lifestyle audits on some of the provincial ministers responsible for awarding the tenders, saying police investigators would have to ?follow the money?.

?We?ve consulted with Zwelinzima Vavi, to brief the legislature on his proposals for lifestyle audits,? said Zille.

One of the previous MECs implicated, Marius Fransman, earlier told the Cape Times the investigations into his tenure were nothing but ?politicking? and claimed that he had no hand in awarding contracts.
