Peter Bruce Columnist

Seriously, if politicians like the DA shadow minister for the Presidency (according to the DA website) Ghaleb Cachalia didn’t exist, I would have to invent them. Writing three columns a week is a tough ask when the currency you work with is as ephemeral as mine — ideas.

Fortunately Cachalia reads me and often has a lot to say, even in a roundabout way, about me and in the process gives me something to write about. For instance, last week in a Business Day column I wrote about a new and widely awaited economic justice policy document from the recently returned head of policy at the DA, Gwen Ngwenya.
