Shortly after the Judge Hlophe remuneration scandal hit the press these esteemed gentlemen had a stand at the Royal Show in Pietermaritzburg. I commented on the scandal to them and they immediately became abusive. I simply cannot understand why anybody in their right mind would invest through them as they certainly have no credibility to my mind.

Their handling of the staff indicates the abusive nature of their culture towards staff in general as all they seek to do is line their own slimy pockets.
