I think Tiisetso Motsoeneng misses the bigger picture, which is that the regulatory environment in SA is so anti-business that companies are choosing to quietly disinvest (“Amplats dividend is a kick in the teeth for workers”, February 27).

Suggesting that companies should spend on charity rather than reward shareholders is not going to make this any better. What is our message to prospective investors? Put your money in SA to support government and workers and only lose 30%? This message might give the writer a warm and fuzzy feeling, but it does not tend to resonate with investors.
