Ramaphosa to meet Indian business in Durban

by Benice BurgerOctober 17, 2017

The SA Muslim Network will on Sunday host a discussion with Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa in Durban to iron out issues affecting South Africa and the Indian community.

The organisation said it extended an invitation to all presidential candidates and Ramaphosa was the first to accept. Chairperson Faisal Suliman said issues affecting the country including crime, health and unemployment would be discussed.

“Beyond this, we hope to look at issues affecting the broader Indian community such as the recent talk that BEE policies might be changed. We want to know how these changes will impact on us.”

Zooming into the Muslim community, Suliman said the organisation needed clarity from ANC leadership about its policies on Palestine, Rohingya and other humanitarian issues. He said they also needed clarity on terrorism issues linked to Islamic State.

“We believe that for a long time a false front had been portrayed by people who were trying to create instability within the Muslim community. It is important that we engage with our leaders and to raise issues that we have.”

The discussion is at 4pm at Durban University of Technology’s Mansfield Hall, Gate 8, Steve Biko Campus.
