Regular listener Richard says he enjoys listening to Eusebius and likes his work.

Indeed the open line on the Eusebius McKaiser show is unpredictable.

Caller Richard says the destruction of the South African Airways SAA) is as a result of affirmative action and that the emphasises of race in the country will not move it anywhere.

While debating the issue with Eusebius, Richard says he will miss him should he die.

The destruction of SAA was based on transformation and affirmative action. As long as we place emphasises on colour and race this country will not go anywhere.

Richard, Caller

If colour matters and race matters, we have 900 families that are going to be destitute at SAA.

Richard, Caller

Of course, corruption is responsible for why SAA sucks and why Eskom was hollowed out by the Guptas and other people.

Eusebius McKaiser, Show host

If you want to do a brutal diagnostics of why inequality wasn't dealt with properly in the first 25 years of South African democracy, it is not because of racialised language and BEE policies. It is because of grand theft facilitated by the ANC.

Eusebius McKaiser, Show host

Richard went on to commend Eusebius on his work and passionately said he will miss him should he die.

Eusebius you are a good man, without fail, I read your articles every week.

Richard, Caller

I enjoy listening to you, I enjoy your work and if you had to die by acts God I will miss you. Thank you for your wisdom.

Richard, Caller
