The Crocodile's QwaQwa kerfuffle


The Crocodile's QwaQwa kerfuffle

Cadiz chairman calls Investec CEO a thief and QwaQwa k****r for allegedly misappropriating shares worth R46m. Investec man counters, claiming his Cadiz colleague stole R1.9m dividend and charges him with crimen injuria.

Investec’s newly minted CEO, Fani Titi is being accused by a former Robben Island political prisoner of scamming him out of his lucrative multi-million-rand shares in three thriving FM radio stations.

So bitter is the dispute between the Investec boss and his old struggle-veteran friend Peter-Paul Ngwenya – who is today an influential company director – that it has found its way into the Randburg criminal court where legal history, regardless of the findings, will be made in a case of crimen injuria (criminal libel).

Fani Titi is reportedly one of the most searched people on Bloomberg.  The FM called him “a corporate kingpin with a Midas touch” .

Your article on the behaviour of the senior execs of Cadiz and Investec left me with a most peculiar feeling - if that is how our newly crowned Kings of the financial industry behave, the future looks increasingly bleak. Their shocking language belongs in the gutter, where they should be lying.

Is it a case of the pot calling the pot Bl***?

This law is vague and is not at all specific.
It should be absolute:
If one man calls or refers to another by the K-Word, is should be deemed racist, regardless of the colour of the perpetrator. Punishment can be determined by the number of times the word was used.
Caucasians have also been referred to as "cockroaches" by people of colour. This should also be termed racist and punished by the same rules. The same should apply should people of colour be referred to as monkeys". (I have compared my own children to monkeys, so fail to find offence there, but it should stand all the same)
