• Why King agreed to R718m for a new start

    This week, King finally settled the 11-year case by agreeing to pay R706.7-million to SARS and nearly R12-million to the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) to settle his tax affairs and clear him of any criminal charges. MICROmega, which has seen its share price fall 5% over the last year partly due to the uncertainty concerning King, is expected to be the largest beneficiary of this week's settlement. SARS attached King's shares in MICROmega, which has operations in information technology, financial, occupational health and safety, and labour supply services. Its action raised uncertainty over ownership and weighed on the share price.

  • Nigeria: 'Get Ready to Sell Your Private Jets' - Oshiomhole Tells Owners

  • Review: As subtle as a sjambok

    Johnson writes about ''baboons" in a 2010 London Review of Books essay on South Africa when describing this country's citizens and its African immigrants.

The country is headed towards an International Monetary Fund bail-out if it continues to vote in an ANC government that is rapacious in its members' approach to the state, its resources and the tax base.
