Rational Radio - the full show, August 7
BizNews — In this edition of Rational Radio: Paul Hoffman of Accountability Now who has fired two three more salvos at the embattled Public Protector who, in his words, has five fires burning under her bum....... it was a criminal charge laid by Hoffman which has led to Busiswe Mkhwebane being investigated by the Hawks. The advocate says she faces a stiff jail sentence for perjury. Miles van der Molen founder and CEO of Cemair is an entrepreneur after all of our hearts; his 20 aircraft business which flies to smaller centres like Hoedspruit, Plett, Sishen and Richards Bay was almost put out of business by an illegal grounding order (the courts have ruled it such) by the Civil Aviation Authority - and is dragging its feet on allowing the airline back into the skies. As if that's not enough, his competitor SA Express has been predatory pricing against Cemair - an airline heavily subsidised by the State, having received R1.5bn in the past year according to the Free Market Foundation.... Paul O'Sullivan who is delighted to see another multinational implicated in State Capture hit hard - last week legal firm Hogan Lovells lost three quarters of its SA partners and lawyers who have set up independently......O'Sullivan wants punitive damages and explains why he will be like a "hyena" tracking those lawyers who facilitated State Capture. David Shapiro on the turbulent markets, the downward spiral of Aspen ("sell" he advises) and shares how he came to dub the Afrikaner business leaders who congregate in a Western Cape town a name that's now become the title of SA's best selling book. And Pieter du Toit (pictured), author of Sa's best-selling book of the moment, The Stellenbosch Mafia, provides the back story. we soon realise he's the perfect person to have written about Rupert, Jooste, Wiese and Co.......and proves equally adept as an interviewee.
