A good week

Consider us motivated, Vusi Thembekwayo. He’s a venture capitalist and motivational speaker, and his video rant, posted on social media over a week ago, has helped electrify a nation sick to the gills with overfed, pontificating politicians who’d quite happily see lockdowns continue even as thousands of families lose their breadwinners and businesses hit the wall. Thembekwayo’s lacerating takedown should be a timely reminder to those in charge that their (in)actions have consequences. Time for a citizens’ revolt?

Well-stocked state bank, here we come.
