ED­I­TOR’S NOTE

Sunday Tribune - - FRONT PAGE -

I’M glad I got the kick-off time com­pletely wrong and missed the cat­a­clysmic hu­mil­i­a­tion by the All Blacks.

I knew we were far from turn­ing the cor­ner but never ex­pected some­thing like 57-0 from the born-again Boks.

I hear they played like Bafana Bafana, miss­ing chances and then pay­ing the price. The full post-mortem is on the back page.

We’ve heard of po­lit­i­cal pris­on­ers be­ing held in soli­tary con­fine­ment, but school kids? One un­lucky pupil was al­legedly kept in de­ten­tion for three days be­cause her par­ents were be­hind with school fee pay­ments (see page 7). Is this right?

It’s com­mon knowl­edge that plants and flow­ers can help lift the spirit and re­fresh the soul. We pro­file a young woman from the Bluff who uses this to her ben­e­fit and that of oth­ers in our gar­den­ing fea­ture (page 9).

And it never rains but pours for Bell Pot­tinger and those con­nected to the for­mer global PR gi­ant. Peo­ple are los­ing jobs and ev­ery­thing fol­low­ing the spec­tac­u­lar col­lapse (see page 10).

The Fourth Industrial Revo­lu­tion is here and it’s in the deep, deep seas. This means new op­por­tu­ni­ties for con­ser­va­tion, but what about com­pet­ing com­mer­cial needs? Fred Kock­ott tack­les the ques­tion (page 13).

While Bob Mu­gabe has been diss­ing our hero Nel­son Man­dela, re­searchers have been ex­pos­ing the tragic story of Zimbabwe’s dis­ap­pear­ing di­a­mond wealth of bil­lions of US dol­lars. See Shan­non Ebrahim’s Global Spot­light on page 16.

Putting aside who she once mar­ried and later di­vorced, what is NDZ’S pres­i­den­tial cam­paign all about? What’s lack­ing in it? This and other ANC is­sues dom­i­nate our Big Is­sue (page 17).

The party needs to re­learn how to lis­ten, ar­gues Zohra Teke. Will that hap­pen soon enough?
