In a statement issued today, the Western Cape Government says it will this week table a report on the impact of the draught in the province at a meeting of the Agriculture’s MEC’s.

Western Cape MEC of Economic Opportunities, Alan Winde will table the report at the MINMEC meeting which will take place in Gauteng on Friday. MEC spokesperson Bronwynne Jooste said
“The drought in the province has already cost the country more than 2 billion in trade losses”.

Meanwhile The ANC Youth League has accused advocate Dali Mpofu of being a racist sympathizer.

In a statement issued on Tuesday night, the youth league referred to the advocate as a hypocrite who thrives on port politics.

 The statement was in response to news that the EFF's Mpofu would represent radio and television personality, Gareth Cliff, in his civil case against M-Net. 

Cliff was dismissed by the channel after public outcry about his response to a tweet by real estate agent, Penny Sparrow, who referred to black people as monkeys.

Twitter users lashed out at Cliff after he referred to Sparrow's sentiment as freedom of speech.

He apologized a day later. While Mpofu's decision to represent Cliff has been met with some criticism, his party, the EFF, has defended his stance.
