Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - BACK PAGE -

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.
