All hail Wayde van Niekerk, South Africa’s su­per­star track ath­lete. First he broke Michael John­son’s 20-year 400m record to win gold at the Rio Olympics last year. Now he has shat­tered the 17-year-old 300m record, also held by John­son. The man is un­stop­pable as he eyes his next tar­get – the 200m record. We should be proud; he flies our flag high. There are many rea­sons Gupta front­man Salim Essa is not hard (be­sides the ob­vi­ous). This week’s one is that Tril­lian Cap­i­tal Part­ners, in which he has a 60% stake, re­ceived R266 mil­lion from Eskom for work it never did. He also tried to con­vene an ur­gent board meet­ing to re­move chair Tokyo Sexwale on the eve of a damn­ing re­port’s re­lease. Nxa!
