Johann Steynberg, founder of the Mirror Trading International Ponzi scheme, may reportedly have faked his demise. While under house arrest in Brazil and facing extradition to South Africa, he apparently died from acute respiratory failure. Craig Warriner, another major fraudster, was sentenced to 25 years in prison for his BHI Trust Ponzi scheme. Both cases underscore the extensive financial damage caused and serve as a warning against "too good to be true" investments.

I’ve written before about the power of one, and this has never been more evident than right here on our doorstep. It’s all about individual actions inspiring collective responsibility.
Our role in building a better future for our country is bigger, and extends far further, than simply voting in an election.

You may or may not have heard of the Gorilla Experiment.
Regular readers of my articles will remember it highlights what scientists call selective perception – the tendency of our brains to slightly close the curtains on the windows of our minds and focus only on the thing we expect to see/hear/experience at that moment.

While assassinated whistleblower Babita Deokaran is surely turning in her grave, countless corrupt individuals continue to dance on it.

The injustice of the situation is absolute, and the insult to Babita Deokaran’s memory is breathtaking.

The Power of One

If you think one second doesn’t make a difference, talk to the Comrades Marathon runner who finished the race in 12 hours and 1 second.
If you think one day doesn’t make a difference, speak to the person who’s just lost their life partner and would give anything to have just one more day with them.

Former President Nelson Mandela would be ashamed of 2024 South Africa.
The country that is just a few weeks away from national elections bears scant resemblance to the free and fair democracy he fought so long and hard to create, and which he led with such dignity, honesty and integrity for five inspiring years.
The ongoing “Money for Pals” scandal surrounding Madiba’s alma mater, Fort Hare University, would be particularly heartbreaking.

In the shadows of boardrooms and financial statements lurks a silent menace that threatens the very foundation of businesses worldwide: fraud and corruption.
The aftermath of the State Capture era and revelations from the Zondo Commission highlight the prevalence of fraud and corruption in companies, often catching executives off guard.

It’s not the ending anyone wanted.
Nor, to be honest, the one most of us would have predicted.
Markus Jooste, disgraced former CEO of fallen corporate giant Steinhoff, was found dead on Thursday of last week.
