Friday Morning Edition

Good morning all,


WRAP

200 Knysna residents to get title deeds to their homes.  Knysna Tourism NPA membership deadline is 30 April.  coMind opens in Mossel Bay.

Sandra Winter will fly the S Cape flag at the SA Women’s Amateur Championships.

UK takes a stand against prisoner swap with Iran.  Kim & Putin discuss destroying nuclear weapons.  Creepy Uncle Joe takes the inside lane but methinks his record of doing very little besides invading people’s personal space will catch up with him.  He’s just not ‘woke’ enough – and then there’s always his shady business dealing with the Ukraine oligarchs – and his many gaffes – and his deep-seated racism – mmm – downhill from here?

Jiba, Mrwebi await their fate.  Was Zuma right about nuclear energy?  I think not – just a bigger project in a bigger mess.

Gold continues to shine, but that’s about all.  Rand goes past R14.50/dollar.  US oil production soars – offsets the reduction from Iran.  SA gender pay gap shrinks.

Semenya eases into the longer distances.  Whiteley out again.  Kolisi and few other ‘Boks back for the Bulls clash.
