Communications minister Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams has welcomed the first meeting of the presidential commission on the fourth industrial revolution (4IR) as a step towards achieving its objectives.

The commission held its first work session at the University of Johannesburg to develop a high-level roadmap towards achieving its set objectives and to establish and assign technical work streams.

The meeting was held on Saturday.

“The commission has committed to produce the strategy document to guide South Africa’s 4IR Vision by March 2020. This will be preceded by a broad consultative process with relevant stakeholders,” said the Department of Communications on Wednesday.

  • The commissioners further established and assigned the work streams as follows:
  • The Infrastructure and Resources work stream will be chaired by Andile Ngcaba.
  • The Research, Technology and Innovation work stream will be chaired by Dr Thulani Dlamini.
  • The Economic and Social impact work stream will be chaired by, MTN Group CEO, Rob Shutter.
  • The work stream on Human Capital and the Future of Work will chaired by Beth Arendse.
  • The work stream on Industrialisation and Commercialisation will be chaired by Nomvula Mkhonza.
  • The Policy and Legislation work stream will be chaired by Charmaine Houvet.

The 31-member Commission was established by President Cyril Ramaphosa in April.

The Commission is mandated to advise government on 4IR policies, develop a framework for implementation of a multi-sectoral 4IR strategy; and coordinate, monitor and evaluate multi-sectoral initiatives that will position South Africa as a globally competitive player in 4IR.

The commission is set to meet with its chairperson, President Ramaphosa, within the next few months.

Evo Morales resigned as president of Bolivia on Sunday amid protests over alleged election fraud

Former Bolivian President Evo Morales has arrived in Mexico City saying he asked for asylum because his life was in danger.

Mr Morales resigned on Sunday after weeks of protests over a disputed presidential election result.

The Mexican jet carrying him landed at an airport in Mexico City, where he gave a brief press conference.

Mr Morales said he was forced to stand down but did so willingly “so there would be no more bloodshed”.

“While I have life I’ll stay in politics, the fight continues, all of the people of the world have the right to free themselves from discrimination and humiliation,” he said.

Mexico’s Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard said Mr Morales had arrived “safely” in the country, tweeting a picture of the jet that carried him.
