US congressman calls for review of bilateral relations with South Africa

# US Congressman John James has called for a review of US bilateral relations with South Africa, citing concerns over the South African government’s stance on Hamas, Russia, and China, and the country’s case against Israel in the International Court of Justice. The bipartisan Bill to Congress, highlights South Africa’s alignment with these governments and its criticism of Israel. The Bill argues that South Africa labeling Israel an apartheid state and accusing it of genocide, is problematic. It also raises concerns about state capture, the Transnet commodities export crisis, and the cholera outbreak, attributing these to corruption and mismanagement.
