South Africa increases its minimum wage to N126,480

As the Federal government continues to debate whether or not to increase the miniumum wage from N18, 000 to N30, 000, the South African government has gone ahead to increase that of it’s civil servants from N97, 495 to N126,480 per month.

South African President, Cyril Ramaphosa, who signed the new minimum wage into law yesterday November 26th, said the new wage would take effect from January 1st 2019 and would benefit about six million workers that currently earn R3,700 (N97,495).

One South African Rand is equivalent to N26.35. This means South African workers would be earning N527 per hour: N4,216 per day and N126,480 per month. Their Nigerian counterparts currently earn N75 per hour, which is N600 per day (at eight working hours per day) and N18,000 per month.

Recall that the sytate governors and the labour unions have been at loggerheads over the demand for the increase in minimum wage. While the Labour unions are demanding that the minimum wage be increased to N30, 000, the state governors have said the only way they can afford the N30k being demanded for is by downsizing the civil service, a position that has since been rejected by the Labour unions.

A 24-year-old man, Godwin Banchir, who beat his 65-years-old mother to death for not responding to his greetings, was, yesterday sentenced to death by hanging by Plateau High Court, sitting in Jos. Shocking: Boy makes love with dead mother’s corpse in Edo NAN: Man to die by handing for murder NAN: Man to die by handing for murder Justice Daniel Longji, handed down the sentence as he found Banchir guilty of killing his biological mother. Delivering the judgment, Longji said: “Going by the findings of this court, you Godwin Banchir, mercilessly took the life of your mother, Mrs Saratu Banchir, in cold blood. “This sentence is mandatory, as the law states that any person convicted of murder shall be punished with death by hanging. “The sentence of this court upon you is that you, Godwin Banchir, will be hanged until you are dead, may God have mercy on your soul,’’ he said. It was gathered that the convict was first arraigned on June 6, 2016, charged with culpable homicide, contrary to Section 221 of the Penal Code punishable with death upon conviction. The convict was said to have committed the crime on Jan. 21, 2016, when he used a stick to beat his mother to death. Banchir in his confessional statement said that he returned from the farm on the said date and found his mother sitting in the compound and when he greeted her, she ignored him. He said that infuriated him and he picked a stick and hit her. In his words: “I got angry when she did not respond to my greetings, so I picked the stick of an axe and hit her around her ribs. “She fell down and started shouting, which attracted our neighbours who came to beat me up and later took me to the police station. “I have been having misunderstandings with my mother each time I return from the farm, she doesn’t cook for me on time, and she always quarrels with me whenever I want to bathe with the water she fetched from the stream. “Her actions always annoyed me, I did not know that she was going to die from the beating she received from me.”
