3:02 am
property. seeing the exit of president gore talbot raj boxer on friday. now obviously he has to resign officially, but for the protest movement that called for him to step down. this has been a victory. and for more sure lumpkins that are here. they say they're not going to lose an opportunity to see how their leaders lived. this is our tax money. so i'm here because of the out. so what kind of things been done for our tax money? that's actually what i'm here is the maximum or just shoot, understand the part of people and the sheer number of people trying to get in to see the president's house is posing a real problem. those who are part of the protest campaign who are still trying to control some of the crowds are urging people to be careful, very structural damage, obviously a very all property and just cannot handle. the sheer numbers are climbing up the
3:03 am
staircase that has been structurally shoes. so that's posing a very rare problem and the danger and this obviously the swimming pool at the president's house of the water looking very much. 2 worse for the wear, but those iconic pictures of people are diving into this right after the protest is essentially over at this residence. now president go tabio roger boxer is reported to have been evacuated to safety before the protest says actually got into the property. we still haven't seen any signs of him other than to hear the statement that he has indicated he is willing and able and willing on his resignation. on the 13th of july, around a week from a rotten a is a member of parliament in july and previously served the state minister of finance . he says the process of change is just beginning to things need to be done, the media prices since they cannot be prices that people don't have gas shortage
3:04 am
is like that. so we would need the help of all our friendly country, their neighbors in assisting with that and then be also me to embark with the international monetary fund, coming to a stop level agreement within weeks. and then going farther, necessarily reforms. and that process has begun. and that that process can be taken to the i am in the country then particular government debt. when i previously had a program, even my finance and i'm in the country. so clearly i think that change need to i am if, and everybody in the government except the majority of the people in the country. and i think that's the stablish. certainly they're supposed to continue the challenge of it because we need to get the picture cues in the need that
3:05 am
even provides for that. we don't need bridging finance and then you have to undertake the economic reforms that are being called for. and we need to do this because they are needed and, and this is the way to take the country forward. there are 2 ways to look at if we had a program previously up to 2019. there are 2 in the country. we have a budget to ban a balance of payments in 20182019 be able to create the primary balance that's through share discipline, fisco, consolidation, raising revenue. and this time it will be tougher because the last of the cost side, and certainly that will create certain problems to be both. so the, i'm a pre fun program to go with the program to sheet it and protect the socially weiner. but i think this is now understood by much elaborate agency stool and we need to target the vulnerable and, and protect them through
3:06 am
a direct social program. why don't be push through with the reforms. at least 21 people have been killed in 3 separate shootings in south africa for they say 15 people was shot dead and several others were injured at the orlando east happen in sweater on the southern outskirts of to hundreds, but for other people were killed in a separate tab and shooting the town of peter merits. but katya lopez, her young, has more the overwhelming pain as families are called to identify their relatives. it was after midnight when police say more than a dozen people shot dead by gunman in the bar. neutral hannah's burg bodies piled near the entrance. our victims who tried to run out and escape what we know is that the assailants just entered into that space where people entering them opened the shorter and only to them. investigators have described the shooting as
3:07 am
a massacre said in us that is a new one. now this is the gun was to try it on our communities and was to call upon communities to actually really did the police in bring in to poke those perpetrators. police say nothing was stolen from the business. now their focus turns on catching those responsible, finding out why the victims were targeted to a little bit. so the young al jazeera gun. the ownership is a hugely divisive issue. in south africa, one proposed legislation, the firearms control act would stop people from legally owning a gun for self defense purposes. support to say few guns will lead to less crime. there are about 450000 licensed guns in south africa. critics argues civilians need license weapons to defend themselves, especially with a rising crime rate and an overwhelmed police force. more than $6000.00 people were
3:08 am
killed in the 1st 3 months of this year. in south africa, police say these are the worst figures recorded in the last 5 years. in cameron is director of the advocacy group community safety actions society in cape town. he thinks police saw inadvertently contributing to the growing problem of gun violence in the last 12 years. and so recovery service has lost more than $26000.00 fire on state far. that means that in the last 12 years of african pre services, most likely the biggest gun suppliers to criminals in south africa, which is obviously very, very worried. and i think if we see it in that way, we need to understand a conviction rates for violent crime, in general in south africa and less than 5 percent conviction. right. it makes it incredibly difficult to combat crime efficiently in the country. i think
3:09 am
this a via political interference in this of african are pretty service. we've seen that over the last 20 years, the majority of commission is that we're going to, we're not korea police members. they were politically connected ruling parties that were appointed. and we also saw this band, most of our specialized units in the south african pre service expectation it was said that they would need to combat serious, violent crime from ground level. and to give you an idea. yeah, for example, like 2019 african pre service lost more than 10000000 rounds of ammunition. so that means 10000000 rounds of ammunition was, is freely roaming on the streets of the country. ah, at least 15 people have been killed in charge of your in eastern ukraine,
