Did the Sunday Times deliberately avoid dealing with Rupert & Grindrod issue

Why did the Sunday Times ignore the response of the Department of Social Development (DSD) to questions it posed ahead of a story published on 12 March 2017 involving allegations that attorney Michael Hulley was involved in the SASSA ‘crisis”? Responding to questions raised by one Anthandiwe, the department ends by advising the journalist to investigate the Grindrod Bank shareholding: “You may also check the shareholders of Grindrod and see if this Minister is not on the right track”.

  1. The attempt by Sabelo Sikiti to try to avoid the real issue and ask stupid questions about a retwitt shows how far reporters of Sunday Times are willing to lay their careers on the line for the masters. We can’t thank platforms like Uncensored to keep us informed about true stories. Sunday Times can go to the nearest lake to kill themselves.

    1. Dear Rastehlo

      Thanks for reminding me. I have been meaning to reprint the journalist’s questions. You have to feel deep pain for him to ask such blatantly stupid questions which only expose for whom they were meant to satisfy. How can an entire newspaper dedicate questions to how many times Manyi retweeted retweeted the images of Ferial Haffajee and Vytjie Mentor with Rupert? Shame man. Ke sono.



  2. This newspaper is bad news to our democracy. It shows how far it’s willing to go to protect the real benefactors of our state funds. They were so ruthless towards Guptas knowing very well they are protecting their masters. That’s why the issue of state capture only reflect the involvement of Guptas which was also aided by their Thuli Madonsela who didn’t want to broaden the investigation. It also shows how biased that woman was in her investigations. It’s just good she’s gone from that position where she actually thought she’s bigger than everybody.
