Religious leaders carrying South African flags walk near a looted shopping mall as the country deploys army to quell unrest linked to the jailing of former South African President Jacob Zuma, in Vosloorus, South Africa, July 14, 2021. Zuma handed himself in to the South African Police Service on July 7 after being sentenced to 15 months in jail for failing to appear before an inquiry into corruption during his time in office, between 2009 and 2018. The South African economy's buoyant start to the year is likely to be ruined by a combination of renewed Covid-19 containment measures and recent civil unrest , experts have warned. Zuma's arrest deepened divisions within the ruling ANC party between the former president's loyalists and those on board with the agenda of his successor, President Ramaphosa. The port of Durban in KwaZulu-Natal acts as a trade gateway to the southern subcontinent and accounts for around 70% of South Africa's imports.

The Mercer Street, a Japanese-owned Liberian-flagged tanker managed by Israeli-owned Zodiac Maritime that was attacked off Oman coast as seen in Cape Town, South Africa, December 31, 2015 in this picture obtained from ship tracker website, MarineTraffic.com. "The UK condemns the unlawful and callous attack committed on a merchant vessel off the coast of Oman, which killed a British and a Romanian National," British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said. "We believe this attack was deliberate, targeted, and a clear violation of international law by Iran." He said British assessments had concluded it was "highly likely" that Iran attacked the tanker using one or more drones. "The UK is working with our international partners on a concerted response to this unacceptable attack," he said.

Harper, the medical physicist and a trans runner herself, is one of the few researchers who have studied trans women in sports.

South African official floats 'debt for climate' plan for Eskom
  + stars: | 2021-07-30 | by ( Alexander Winning | ) www.reuters.com sentiment -1.00   time to read: +2 min
Two options previously discussed are transferring some Eskom debt to the sovereign balance sheet or moving a portion to a special purpose vehicle. But in comments at a meeting of the presidential climate commission, South Africa’s Deputy Finance Minister David Masondo said he did not support those ideas. Instead he proposed three ways to raise capital: listing Eskom on a stock exchange, inviting a foreign state-owned firm to invest or arranging a “sovereign-level debt for climate swap”. Masondo said the ideas were his personal views, not necessarily the official position of the National Treasury. Peter Attard Montalto, head of capital markets research at Intellidex, said Masondo’s suggestions risked confusing investors as they did not represent National Treasury or Eskom thinking.

REUTERS/Arnd WiegmannLONDON, July 30 (Reuters) - Glencore (GLEN.L) on Friday raised expectations for its trading division following improved market conditions and a surge in commodity prices, but lowered full-year guidance for nickel and coal, citing output disruptions. For output, it left its full-year guidance for copper and cobalt output broadly unchanged, but lowered its expectations for zinc, nickel and coal. Lead output fell by 9% to 117,000 tonnes and nickel was down 14% to 47,700 tonnes over the period. In the first half, zinc production rose by 6% to 581,800 tonnes, as COVID-related suspensions started to be lifted, but Glencore said the second half could be slower than previously thought.

South African movie-lovers sit in their cars as they attend a drive-in cinema at the rooftop, where a giant projector screen is mounted by Ster-Kinekor, South Africa's largest cinema group in Sandton, South Africa, June 24, 2021. Ster-Kinekor, Africa's largest cinema group, is betting on the format to win back customers fearful of catching the coronavirus. Like its peers, Ster-Kinekor was forced to close from the end of March 2020 until the end of August 2020. He said the drive-in cinema allows the industry as a whole to gauge people's willingness to come back to cinemas and establish how strong the case is to rescue the business. For movie-goers Satya Praksh and her boyfriend Quinton Lamb, the drive-in experience offered a protective personal bubble and a new style of cosy relaxation.

Live Covid Live Updates: Broadway Shows to Require Proof of Vaccination and Masks Children under 12, who cannot be vaccinated, can show a negative test to attend. But an outbreak of the fast-spreading Delta variant could challenge China’s zero-tolerance approach toward new infections. The decision is a shift in policy for the school district, which is the second largest in the United States. The C.D.C.’s new masking guidelines, introduced on Tuesday, were based on information presented in a document about the Delta variant. This week, the European Union pulled ahead of the United States in total vaccinations, adjusted for population.

(Reuters) -Spirits group Diageo reported on Thursday a better-than-expected rise in full-year organic net sales growth, as North American bars and restaurants reopened helping boost demand for its tequila brands and Johnnie Walker whisky. FILE PHOTO: A bartender takes a bottle of Johnnie Walker whisky in Almaty, Kazakhstan June 22, 2017. At the same time, consumers continued to shop for more premium spirits such as tequila, liqueurs and bottles of Johnnie Walker scotch at supermarket stores, driving organic net sales in North America up 20%. Signs of resurgence were also emerging in Africa, Latin America and Asia, where organic net sales rose by double digit percentages, in part due to easier comparisons to last year. Total organic net sales rose 16% for the year ending June 30, beating the 13.7% rise analysts had expected, according to company-supplied estimates.

Courtesy Kierran Allen/via REUTERSJOHANNESBURG, July 29 (Reuters) - Recent unrest in South Africa damaged hundreds of businesses but property developers and retailers say they remain committed to the fast-growing consumer markets of its predominantly Black townships. The hardest hit areas included Durban's uMlazi and Johannesburg's Soweto and Alexandra townships in KwaZulu-Natal and the economic heartland of Gauteng. McCormick's views reflected those expressed by six other CEOs and executives of listed property companies and two retailers interviewed by Reuters. She noted the total return on township retail (including capital valuation changes) was 5.7% in 2020 versus minus 6.7% for suburban retail, citing data from the South African Property Owners Association. Still, some players may delay further investment beyond repairing damage pending economic growth, cautioned Sasfin senior equity analyst Alec Abraham.
