Tuesday Morning Edition

Good morning all,


WRAP

Garden Route schools go green.  Busy weekend for the NSRI.  Unity Park in George is open for fitness.

Another good result for Martin Vorster.  The latest Knysna Golf Club Newsletter.

Helicopter crashes in Manhatten.  Ukraine stands up to Russia.  Trump/Mexico border deal kicking in.

The DA and the EFF continue to circle each other.  SARB reveals how the Guptas stole millions.  Siyabonga Cwele and Jeff Radebe resign as MPs.  

JSE up slightly.  Tariffs may be a double-edged sword, but Trump knows how to use both – and again the Dems are squawking – but again they’re out of their depth.  

Proteas get a point, but now the result is now out of their hands.  Our national men’s hockey smashes Mexico 6-0.  Banyana now in pretty much the same position as the Proteas.
