Old Mutual takes out bizarre full-page advertisement in Business Day
This week, Rice critiqued a full-page Old Mutual advertisement in Business Day.

Old Mutual, for those few who don’t know, has three times denied its former CEO Peter Moyo (he would take issue with the word ‘former’) access to work.
Rice gave the advert a “zero” for glaringly obvious reasons.
Hahahahahahaha! They have a CEO who is bringing down that average! … it’s delicious!Bruce Whitfield, The Money Show
