Oom JZ is in Russia and Putin would rather keep company with the ExP than a band of bandits in RSA.
When Oom JZ was giving astronomical figures of Eleventy millions and some change with his customary laugh, he was subtlety alluding to something much bigger, trillions of it.
Now maybe a retired journalist sitting in a quiet West Coast town like Paternoster could do some investigation into the missing heist that could bankrupt us all.
And enlighten us more on the heist.

P. S. Problem is who will fund the wannabe Charlse Dickens. B)

Not to argue the point, but I think the journalist being referred to is resident in Riebeeck-West - but in that general area :dry:

Plenty videos from Joburg as far as gas leak and road damage.
Xxxcccccxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxcxc
Gas company in Egoli says no leaks and loss of pressure.
That rules them out.
Zuma is in Russia, he's not in the field.
So who will the fingers be pointed at.
The Zama Zamas from Lesotho? .
Eish Lesotho, Lesotho, Lesotho.

The tiny land - locked Kingdom best known for Basuto blankets and donkeys.

Now the subject of the mysterious trillions and illegal miners that can ruin it's bigger neighbour.

If they looking for a few sofas to stash their USD's I might be able to assist,;) ;)

Biz News always worth a morning read.

Dear Dave,

Every South African is aware of the chaos the country is in today. It's something the rest of the world will read about today, courtesy of this in-depth article by global news provider Bloomberg.

It is a tale of a country teetering on becoming a failed state. The conclusion: Were it not for the nation's continuously abused private sector, the socialist ANC government in power since 1994 would have driven the nation into the ground long ago.

Indeed, left to its own devices, its misguided economic policies may well succeed in turning a nation that 30 years ago produced almost half of Africa's GDP (then $153bn of $325bn – now at under 20%) into another Zimbabwe or Venezuelan basket case.

On the upside, SA is a constitutional democracy. Next year its citizens can use their votes to punish those who created this disaster.

Considering everything that's going on, this thread is rather quiet??

I just read that India launched a spaceship to the SUN 🌞

I just hope they are going at night 😎

......now that BRICshow is over.....we get badly loadshedded again.....one has gotta wonder if the strain of curtailing power outages during this BRICs event has now caused the sudden numerous breakdowns.....apart from splurging on precious power..... how much was spent for fuel and flight hours for those Gripen jet fly overs.....at least some pilots got some miles and a quicker trip to Gauteng for the show.....:whistle:

Cheers Mac we always making plans but it's just lack of service delivery in total.

We still paying people to empty the bins.

Plus they have the cheek to have a massive tourist expo at SUN CITY to promote what is rapidly becoming a total shit hole .....
