This week in Voices, Barney Pityana writes that, although the struggle against apartheid was a moral project, we have lost that and our society has instead “become an aggressively filthy, selfish, individualistic and greedy society that cares only for itself and its own”.

City Press’s political editor Rapule Tabane explains why the furore around Ace Magashule and the white vote is all about Cyril Ramaphosa.

Solani Ngobeni argues that it’s time for the shameless ANC to experience vote shedding, and Patricia de Lille writes on water as a human right as we acknowledge World Water Day.

Also in Voices, Thandi Smith from Media Monitoring Africa writes why press freedom and a thriving democracy are symbiotic. This is in support of an event City Press is co-hosting to launch the African Media Barometer in partnership with Friedrich Ebert Stiftung South Africa and the South African National Editors’ Forum, featuring a selection of investigative journalists, among them City Press’s head of investigations Nicki Gules and Susan Comrie from Amabhungane.
