BUSI MAVUSO: Uncertainty in a time of coronavirus …
Indecision about certain things is a certainty in SA. Now we have a new layer of uncertainty added in the form of a virus
We knew this year would possibly be the same as ones gone by, with further uncertainty a central theme of the SA economy: another season of indecision about energy policy and the future role of our state-owned enterprises that continue to cripple the state with every passing day. In some odd way, perhaps, this was our certainty.
The ingredient that has added another layer of uncertainty is one we’ve never seen before: the coronavirus. There’s quite simply no telling what effect the pandemic will have on our economy, let alone the globe.
