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

Here are my comments. It took about a day to draft them. The word document is here - please download these comments and make all the changes you want, but most importantly send the comments to Jacques Manus. The dti... Continue reading

Not really my work, I have to thank my friend Feeeeeeeeeeee for pursuing this. I wrote the last blog post on the subject because a useless verification agency (that I will never use again) refused to recognise that the company... Continue reading

We are just slowing down the (black) empowerment that we want to achieve, says the country’s mines minister. This is a difficult one. Clinging onto licenses for resources does give a government a lot of power and control but it... Continue reading

It seems to have started with this article, although I would like to believe that my play in one act really clinched the deal. Bruce Whitfield wrote The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) has added an unexpected new financial... Continue reading

Last year I hosted a conference in Windhoek about the NEEEF. The overriding impression I got was that the government was willing to talk and listen to business. Something that our dear bolshie bob is not willing to do at... Continue reading

[Enter Post Title Here] The scene – a room in a prime office in Meintjies Street Pretoria. A nondescript bearded man in a Mandela shirt is reading the news online whilst he fondles his made-to-scale replica of Marx’s gravestone. Man... Continue reading

There was a conversation between me and a person who I had met yet about their BEE scorecard. They were told by their completely unreasonable clients that they have to be a level 1 or 2. We're talking about a... Continue reading

The poor official opposition. They have suddenly become irrelevant. With Cyril moving the aNc towards the centre, the DA have found themselves wanting. julius knows this too - he's going all out to remain relevant. First it was the land... Continue reading

What to do? My last post which was published on Biznews this morning. In this article I reverted back to type and poured out my usual anti-davies vitriol, all of which hoped that Rob Davies (uppercase because of search engines)... Continue reading

Disclaimer: please excuse the uppercase usage for zuma, gigaba (abagig to this blog), davies (should be bolshie bob) and dud miyeni (in the land of sheer incompetence this one truly stands out, we are talking mkhwebane incompetent). It’s been almost... Continue reading

With the removal of IRBA the number of VAs have dropped from about 450 to 72 (this figure is exact and comes from SANAS' website). The two graphs below show the split between provinces and which cities they operate in.... Continue reading

How SANAS loves its paperwork. This is a spinoff from bolshie bob's desire to create paperwork and red tape. How this is going to result in transformation resides only in his red mind. The internet was trawled for a trainee... Continue reading

Whilst we wait for Cyril to do something about this abomination known as the BEE codes I might as well provide my loyal readership with a short tutorial on ownership. Before I start I need to stress that ownership is... Continue reading

Our good friend and dyed in the wool minister of trade and industry declined to sit on the anc's NEC in December. My thinking was that bolshie had done enough destruction for one lifetime, something which the country will pay... Continue reading

There is reason to be cheerful. The news is full of reports of a zuma recall within the next week. Universities are on tenterhooks as the multitudes demand entry - all because Julius is trying to outpopulist zuma. And the... Continue reading

To put the blame zuma solely for the mess that is South Africa is too simplistic, but we can blame him for pretty much 99% of the mess. He is a despicable specimen. Such a strange man, one who firmly... Continue reading

And there I was thinking that this awesome government would have kept it under wraps so as not to tip the economy over. As abagig says - "transformaysheein uber alles". This is going to be a nasty document - specifically... Continue reading
