Bull or bear market?

The pendulum of sentiment has been swinging wildly this year, bringing lots of volatility for traders and much uncertainty for longer-term investors. The sharp sell-off we saw in global markets in January swung sentiment to one extreme of the scale, followed by a sharp recovery fuelled by a shift in sentiment to the other extreme of the scale. Emerging markets have been the major beneficiaries of the last nine months' rally in global markets, but will they continue riding the bull? Joining CNBC Africa to discuss this is Petri Redelinghuys, Founder of Herenya Capital Advisors and Tumisho Grater, Economic Strategist at Novare Actuaries & Consultants.

Land reform: Another round of claims is likely

When government opened its land claims process, it received around 80 000 claims by the December 1998-deadline. An amendment to the Restitution of Land Rights Act allowed for a second round of land claims, intended to run between July 2014 and June 2019. But a Constitutional Court ruling earlier this year found that amendment to be unconstitutional, affecting thousands of new land claimants. Joining CNBC Africa is Annelize Crosby, Legal and Policy Advisor to agriculture industry organisation Agri SA.

Mining outlook: A call to decriminalise Zama Zamas

The recent rockfall at a disused mine shaft near Langlaagte in Johannesburg, which injured a group of Zama Zamas and killed some of their colleagues, has led Cosatu to call for government to decriminalise what is often described as illegal mining. However, this will require a mind shift of all parties involved - government, mining companies, trade unions and the Zama Zamas themselves. Joining CNBC Africa to discuss how this problem can be addressed is Finweek Editor, Jana Marais.
