QUOTES OF THE WEEK
You are lying, you are evasive, you are less than helpful, and we are going to come to worse conclusions. Do you think we are little children? – Former finance minister Pravin Gordhan to former Eskom chief financial officer Anoj Singh during the parliamentary inquiry into the power utility this week.
Hugh Masekela told the South African story in an inimitable way. Through his music, the fight for democracy reached audiences all over the world and, to us, he was the voice of hope during dark times. – Yolisa Phahle, M-Net chief executive on the passing of the jazz icon on Tuesday.
I am thrilled to be joining the biggest club in the world. The chance to play in this historic stadium and to work with José Mourinho was something I could not turn down. I am proud to be the first Chilean player to play for United’s (Manchester United) first team and I hope I can show our fans all around the world why the club wanted to bring me here. – Footballer Alexis Sanchez on signing with Manchester United in a swop deal with Arsenal’s Henrikh Mkhitaryan after a protracted transfer saga ended this week.
This is the start of the entire empire they (the Guptas) built. And we believe there’s still a lot to come and the people involved in Estina need to be taken on, one by one. As much as a number of people were listed in the affidavit, that’s the tip of the iceberg because this money was used to fund other ventures. – Outa chief operating officer Ben Theron on the preservation order secured against the Gupta-owned Estina dairy project.
