Policy debate shouldn’t worry investors-SAfrica’s Zuma

JOHANNESBURG, Jan 10 (Reuters) – Talk about debating
controversial economic policy points between South Africa’s
ruling African National Congress (ANC) and its leftist allies
should not worry investors, President Jacob Zuma said on Sunday
in a televised address.

Zuma’s government is under pressure from ANC allies, the
South African Communist Party (SACP) and labour federation
COSATU, to adopt a pro-poor stance, which includes expanded
fiscal spending and nationalising mines.
