What is really going on here? The action by the Hawks is surprising and strange.— Edward Kieswetter
I have no doubt that Minister Gordhan is intent on following the law.— Edward Kieswetter
What is the role of the Presidency in this matter?— Edward Kieswetter
Pravin Gordhan is absolutely committed to what the ANC have stood for.— Edward Kieswetter
South Africa cannot afford that the Finance Minister is questioned! We have seen what has happened to the rand! Ordinary South Africans – poor South Africans – will be affected.— Edward Kieswetter

We have barely eight weeks before we sit for our next examination!— Saki Macozoma
We need all South Africans facing in the same direction. It’s sad. I guess we just have to keep on keeping on. This is pushing us very close to hopelessness.— Saki Macozoma
