We could learn a lot from Ru­pert

The Citizen (KZN) - - LETTERS -

Ihave just been lis­ten­ing to the con­ver­sa­tion with Jo­hann Ru­pert, pic­tured, on eNCA and again I am so dis­ap­pointed. In­stead of learn­ing from him, he was at­tacked.

There were many wise things he said which were to­tally ig­nored by those who were there. Racism again was un­nec­es­sar­ily brought up.

When are we as South Africans go­ing to learn?

Surely a suc­cess­ful busi­ness­man can teach us some­thing.

A mes­sage to the two farm­ers, you are in the wrong job if you want to get rich quickly!

It will take at least 20 to 30 years to do so and I should know, I’m a farm­ers wife.

That was the strength he was talk­ing about, to be able to last that long, han­dle the drought, the hail, the poor crops and wait­ing a year be­fore re­ceiv­ing the money for the maize you planted, won­der­ing if you have enough funds to plant next year’s crop.
