Sikonathi Mantshantsha, Deputy Editor at FM (Financial Mail) says the rand has fallen hard against the dollar following the Cabinet reshuffle by President Zuma.
He says from now on the price of everything increases, including the price of petrol, which will affect everyone.
But of course if you are in the Gupta's payroll you don't have to worry about that because they will be all sorts of payments coming your way.— Sikonathi Mantshantsha, Deputy Editor at FM (Financial Mail)
Mantshantsha took a sarcastic tone in referring to the "wrecking ball that is President Jacob Zuma" and ridiculed the controversial Social Development Minister, Bathabile Dlamini who recently faced allegations of abusing alcohol, a claim she vehemently denied. Mantshantsha also took a stab at newly appointed Minister of Police, Fikile Mbalula (previously Minister of Sport).
He has kicked all the incompetence like Pravin Gordhan and kept the doyens of performance like Fikile Mbalooser (loosing bid to host Common Wealth games) and Banxilile Dlamini (after the alcohol claims).— Sikonathi Mantshantsha, FM Editor
