William won’t tell
SHORTLY AFTER the wooden panel producer received its second instalment of a R30m loan from the Department of Trade and Industry, its MD, Wally van Coller, is suspended “pending an investigation”. Now unlike the rest of this respectable magazine, TheSPECtacle puts huge stock in coincidence. However, seeing as WILTELL is based in the wild West Rand of Johannesburg – where a brandy and Coke is also known as a Krugersdorp cappuccino – let’s focus on what we do know.
According to the company, Van Coller’s actions won’t have any effect on WilTell’s finances whatsoever. Phew. Good to hear the cookies are still safe in the jar.
Still, we’d like to know what Van Coller did to deserve such indiscreet treatment on Sens. Clearly, a company teetering on a successful recovery can’t be seen going soft on an MD who’s been around for less than a year.
