Hot & Not
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!
