after this disaster she gets promoted to do a very important job as minister of energy... in the shadow of jz... together they make a dangerous team of untouchables! hold your horses, my prediction is that the scandals around the weapons deal, gupta, nkandla and bad appointments by jz will all look like a walk in the park compared to the enrichment and corruption that will flow out of the dealings with the suppliers of the new n/c power stations.

keep the focus on tina and jz...
