It’s the ANC conference this weekend. The result will probably have a massive short-term effect on the ZAR. As I write, the Rand is sitting at R13.15 to the USD. I guess everyone thinks Cyril is going to win. I just want to remind those people that Hillary was supposed to win and the UK is still supposed to be staying in the EU. The unexpected happens. If NDZ wins this weekend, is it the end of the world? If you read the papers (other than the New Age) on Monday then you would probably believe so. What do I think? I am not a fortune teller. The Guptas have been stealing for years – could it possibly get any worse? Does it actually make a massive difference to my life? Cue Mark Manson quotes… maybe this is just something not worth giving a f*ck about (book link).
