Quote of the week

Senekal last week had nothing to do with solutions. It was all about politicians’ testosterone. It was all about politicians’ egos. What useful idea came out of all that heat and noise generated by all those politicians in Senekal last week? There is nothing. Nothing that makes SA a better place. Nothing that leads us to a better understanding of race relations in SA after 1994. Nothing that is a solution to farm murders – many of whose victims are poorly paid, desperate black people – or a solution to the incredibly horrendous murder and crime problem in this country.

On Gupta corruption

In a scheme so audacious and lucrative that it puts the notorious arms deal to shame, [the Guptas}:

  • Entered kickback agreements totalling R5.3-billion with the Chinese manufacturer that became Transnet’s favourite locomotive supplier;
  • Influenced procurement processes through their associates at Transnet;
  • Are pocketing R10-million from each R50-million locomotive that Transnet is buying.
