Transnet disaster grows; launching SA's 'active publishing model' overseas; part 2 of State Capture and the banks

This is the penultimate episode of the BizNews Power Hour. Friday (11 March 2022) will be the BPH Digest edition featuring no local news or markets, just a complication of the most downloaded interviews of the week. In this episode, editor Alec Hogg speaks to Francois Nortje, the man behind the development of the Port of Gauteng. Nortje says Transnet needs to be broken into smaller pieces and urgently privatised. Then, our London correspondent Linda van Tilburg interviews Jeremy Boraine, one of South Africa’s leading publishers from Jonathan Ball Publishers (JBP). Boraine will be taking up a post at Icon Books, one of JBP’s newly acquired British companies in April. In Part 2 of Michael Appel's chat to Adv Erin Richards it's about the role of financial institutions in state capture. There are a lot of questions being asked about how billions could have been spirited out of South Africa over a period of years with banks only starting to close the Gupta's accounts in mid-2016. To see the full interview with Erin Richards, go to the BizNews TV Channel on YouTube. Past BPH episodes will remain up on this channel on Spotify but be sure to subscribe to the BizNews Radio channel to be notified of the latest interviews BizNews does daily.
