Quote of the week

The recommendation for criminal charges is particularly applicable to Mr Anoj Singh and Mr Koko, who by false pretences led Eskom, through the officials who processed the R659 million payment, to believe that the R659 million payment was in the nature of pre-payment for coal, as was the R1.68 billion pre-payment, later converted into a guarantee, when in truth and fact they knew that the prepayment and the guarantee were needed to enable the Guptas to complete and save the sale of share transaction.

Boucher’s bum….

A story on News24 on why so many women go to the cricket these days, caught my eye. The eye-popping quote:

Interviewed on TV, one young woman said she came to watch because she loved the game, her friend came for a tan, and another wanted to see “Boucher’s bum”.

Don’t think the woman would have mentioned Boucher’s bum 15 years ago. Can we say it constitutes advancement in gender equality when men are also treated as sex objects?
