Lufuno Netshithuthuni created a business that created modern traditional shoes for women who love cultural fashion. But in a saturated industry and COVID-19, how has the growth been affected?

If it was up to me I would even privatise home affairs I guess those those trains will be subsidised by the treasury cause I know for a fact that we're not going to travel by them. We'll use the trains esikhule ngawo. but definitely short-change the ANC coffers. Mono-rail proposal didn't fly bcoz it was too lean to be of advantage to the ANC. ANC will make sure any projects that don't provide fat for its gravy doesn't see the light of the day.

Hope they are fire proof Why are we just sitting and watching Pravin and the rest of them give away SOEs to private companies who are all about maximizing profiits and not about creating sustainable jobs and development ? Media lies, again. Where's the proof? Then people say Cyril failed the country, the man is clearly doing a great job at what he was hired to do, privatise SOE's at all costs

Siyabuka nje Niyabona, The destruction of rail infrastructure is heavily funded. I see the orchestration. The rich will get richer. MbalulaFikile , What Private Trains? Are these not the Prasa Trains that were bought in that Scandalous Tender or ones Produced/Manafactured in Ekurhuleni? When did we start talking about Private Railways Trains?!

Niyabona, The destruction of rail infrastructure is heavily funded. We see the orchestration

Are they even the right size or barekile XXL again The plan well executed, collapse the SOEs then sell then next to nothing. Well done Cyril, you're delivering your mandate Will they now? Private sector anything will help the government. Didn’t the current trains benefit the government? Private trains, private electricity......my people will wake up once this privatization is complete and their fleecing is in full swing. The poor in this country will not survive this planned future. They won't be there anyway....the vaccines will wipe them out.
