My wife has correctly pointed out that my cynicism is not in anyone's best interests. I'll see if I can temper it. As you might or might not know - our man in Meintjies Street published the YES code recently.... Continue reading

Swissport's most recent BEE certificate (which expired in May) shows that they are a level 4 with 49% black ownership. As I wrote yesterday, the ACSA tender stipulates that bidders commit to 51% black ownership at the first anniversary of... Continue reading

It seems that there has been a flurry or SANAS accreditation activity. My last post showed there were 72 agencies at the beginning of the year. We lost BEE Matrix due to a ridiculous witch hunt but we seem to... Continue reading

It's not clear whether we are Parachute or Parachutes. Either way it's quite a rude term and I'm not telling you why. After four years of slog we've actually managed to get it together to have a gig. The band... Continue reading

They say that without hearsay no rumour is worth spreading. I was informed by a source that was informed by another source - the latter being directly involved in the process, that the comments on minister davies amendments have been... Continue reading

They pretty much published it verbatim - Ray Mahlaka edited it down to something a lot easier to read, you know what I'm like when I get started on bolshie bob. South Africa was a battered and bruised country when... Continue reading

(A sleezy sax is heard in the background – something like the break in Bob Seger’s “Turn the Page”, which is not a sleezy song at all. Imagine a black and white film and a voice talking over the sleezy... Continue reading

There are a number of black commentators who are not in favour of bolshie bob's new amendments. I spoke about Andile Khumalo's article in the Sunday Times a few months ago. We now have an opinion in one of oddball's... Continue reading

Is dali mpofu as great as he makes out to be? Perhaps the litmus test has arrived with his taking tomuch moyoney to steal as a client. Or perhaps he has another strategy. I read today that he has taken... Continue reading

As I've said before, the dti will push through anything it wants because it knows that no one will ever raise a stink about their legislating by decree. If they ignored 550 comments when pushing through their last attempt at... Continue reading
