2019 matric pass rate of 81.3% is highest recorded in the last 25

2019 matric pass rate of 81.3% is highest recorded in the last 25
Guest: Angie Motshekga, Basic Education Minister

Eastern Cape, North West, and KwaZulu-Natal recorded the highest improvements as the national matric pass rate rose to a record 81.3% in 2019. The jump suggests inequalities in education may be reduced, but there are still challenges with the quality of schooling and the many, many students who don’t make it to Grade 12. The overall pass rate has steadily risen from 70.7% in 2015. The real standouts in 2019 were the increases in pass rates in previously poor-performing areas of the country. Free State was the best performer with a total pass rate of 88.4%, followed by Gauteng at 87.2% and North West at 86.8%. The lowest pass rates were recorded.

23 September 2020 7:35 AM

In recent months, has been growing sentiment on social media to “put South Africans first”. An organisation called Action for Change has planned a march to the Nigerian Embassy in Tshwane to protest against human trafficking and gender based violence.

KPMG Through the Eyes of its Chairman: A Memoir

22 September 2020 7:40 AM

What happens to an organisation when good governance and warning signs are ignored?

 In 2017 KPMG was embroiled in a Gupta-linked corruption scandal and the capture of SAR that rocked the auditing sector, including unethical conduct with VBS. Professor Wiseman Nkuhlu was brought in to help clean up the mess in the wake of sate capture and gupta-linked scandals at the risk of damaging his own reputation. He had a ringside seat at one of the worst financial crises South Africa has seen and has now written a book to describe his experience as Chairman of KPMG during the turbulent period the firm experienced. 

 His book, Enabler or Victim: KPMG SA and State Capture, captures the ideas and beliefs that influenced his actions during the time as chairman of the company. Can the company bounce back from reputational damage? Are reparations enough?

Bongani joined by Professor Wiseman Nkuhlu, KPMG Chairperson.
