This idea that a lot of people are advancing… that President Ramaphosa needs a resounding victory… to quieten down factions in his party; that’s absolute nonsense! Some of the idiots you’ve had on saying those sorts of things is driving me mad!

Paul Theron, MD - Vestact

The election results are going to be far messier than people think, said Paul Theron, MD at Vestact on Bruce Whitfield’s The Money Show.

Paul Theron, MD - Vestact

People who vote for the ANC now run the risk of giving it a big fat kiss and a mandate to carry on behaving as badly as it has been in recent times…

Paul Theron, MD - Vestact
