Published: 23 Jun 17
Djibouti has commissioned its $590 state-of-the-art Doraleh multipurpose port, at a time when fellow East African nations Kenya and Tanzania are investing heavily in port expansion in a bid to become the region's shipping hub. The new port, which occupies a 690 ha site, comprises 15 berths that are 1 200 m long, with its other facilities including container terminals, general cargo yards, bulk terminals, vehicles yards and a storage area for solid fuels such as steam coal and pet coke.

Damage control mode Damage control mode
Published: 23 Jun 17
There is now absolutely no question that the country’s toxic politics is dragging the economy down and that most, if not all, the pain is self-inflected. There is also no doubt that, because the most pressing problem is a political one (corrupt politicians and private citizens, who have distorted well-intention policy for their own greedy ends), the immediate solution lies in the political theatre. That’s not to say it’s most sustainable solution. Indeed, it could be argued that the only way to deal decisively with the scourge of corruption is to use the criminal justice system to make a high-profile case for why corruption should not and does not pay.

You must be choking all over again
Published: 23 Jun 17
It is a balmy London Sunday afternoon. It is June 11. It is Groundhog Day. Well, for me it is. Just a few hours ago, an unwelcome event recurred. You might even say that it was “It's deja vu all over again”, to quote Yogi Berra. Yes, Yogi Berra, and not Yogi Bear. (Yogi Berra was an American professional baseball catcher, manager and coach, while Yogi Bear is a cartoon character who has appeared in numerous comic books, animated television shows and films.) The proteas choked. Not the flowers – South Africa’s cricket team. The lost in what was considered – not called – the quarterfinals of the International Cricket Council (ICC) Champions Trophy. If you need reminding, South Africa lost by scoring a mere 191 in 44.3 overs. It did not finish its allotted 50 overs. India chased down the meagre total in a mere 38 overs. So decisive was the victory – 12 overs to spare.
Thumbs up to govt’s push to support small business
Published: 23 Jun 17
There is constant talk of supporting small business. I agree; it is a good thing to do. However, this needs some thought. Small Business Development Minister Lindiwe Zulu recently introduced Operation Vula to stimulate entrepreneurs. So, let is ponder some of this. An entrepreneur is somebody who goes out on a limb to start something new. Usually, the person has dreams of doing very well in due course.  So, if an entrepreneur does do very well in due course, he or she must not be criticised for it. At times, I see some entrepreneurs battle for ages, and then the person hits the jackpot and lands a major contract. A number of times, what then happens is that people respond by saying that he should not be allowed to hit the jackpot and that this should be stopped or curtailed.
Disaster on different continents
Published: 23 Jun 17
It is storms and rain in Cape Town. I have been in countries where natural disasters have occurred and have been reported on the television (okay, clever clogs, they have been reported on radio, newspaper, the Internet and by word-of-mouth at the local pub but, in this column . . . television).
