Naspers pulls the JSE higher.  There may be 3 small cuts in the REPO rate this year.  South Africans aren’t poor or underpaid, they just have too much debt.  Another Eskom big whig quits.

‘Boks prepare for the Wallabies.  Proteas make it 4 from 4 at the Netball WC.  Mark Batchelor shot in an apparent hit.  Josh Stauss joins the Bulls.
