#IFQSAT: A shout-out to the SAA Cabin Crew!

19 February 2020 9:41 AM

Amid the most dire and confusing rhetoric in the press and in the market, the SAA cabin crew – still South Africa’s best in the sky – continue to rise above the noise and keep us safe with fortitude, proactiveness and positivity. This, in the face of the constant risk of not only joblessness, but the potential contraction of Coronavirus. I tip my hat to these incredible South Africans.

#IFQSAT: The dangers that denialism and euphemism, like FW de Klerk’s statements, foster.

18 February 2020 7:48 AM

Dismissiveness of the past breeds contempt for the present requirements for redress, reconciliation, and reform. Euphemistic and revisionist recollections of the extent of South Africa’s history result in unfortunate statements, and worse, presumptive policy suggestions.

#IFQSAT: I feel quite strongly that the necessary conditions for a successful sovereign wealth fund aren’t present in South Africa, at this time

14 February 2020 7:44 AM

On the back of the President’s announcement of a Sovereign Wealth Fund to be launched during his State of the Nation Address, Refilwe reflects on whether South Africa is suited for such a specific and precarious vehicle, under the current administration.

#IFQSAT: I Feel Quite Strongly that the average South African knows very well what the State of the Nation is.

13 February 2020 8:54 AM

What we want to know is what has changed, what has been truly accomplished, what action has been taken. Unlike June 2019’s SONA, save the 10-year pies in the sky for yourself, Mr President. Do not patronize the citizenry.

#IFQSAT: It’s impossible to take our chairmanship of the AU seriously, for as long as we don’t take our place in Africa seriously.

10 February 2020 7:59 AM

Our track record as a member of the African family has been poor, with our governing party consistently trying to downplay our grave xenophobic issues as a country, in South Africa.

#IFQSAT: What’s a girl gotta do to get a ticket in this town?!

7 February 2020 7:45 AM

After breaking the story on Cape Talk with her interview with the head of Tennis South Africa on Upfront with Refilwe back in 2019, it took a long time for Refilwe to come to terms with not being able to get a ticket to The Match in Africa tennis showcase between Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal. That was, at least, until her friend who doesn’t even understand tennis scored tickets!

#IFQSAT: Is the political tail wagging the ruling party dog?

6 February 2020 7:42 AM

The two key issues raised as demands by COSATU in our interview with its President last week have turned up as endorsed policy moves in the press this week. I feel quite strongly that we need to check exactly who it is who is running this party.

#IFQSAT - More “adulting” for kids, please!

5 February 2020 7:50 AM

Kids these days seem ill-equipped to repair or mend basic goods, in a world where the economic system makes it simpler and cheaper to replace damaged goods. Practical life skills like cooking, changing a tyre or sewing are being lost and are imperative to teach to both boys and girls, in the home, for basic survival.

#IFQSAT – We need to find economic solutions that supersede reliance on an ever-shrinking mining industry.

4 February 2020 8:15 AM

The centrality, scale and importance of the Africa Mining Indaba can’t be ignored, when critical policy announcements that affect all users of electricity in the SA economy are reserved for members of the ever-shrinking extractive industry. This is at odds with the world’s trend toward sustainability (as per Davos) and our intention of being a forward-thinking country that can compete in a multiplicity of industries on the global stage.

#IFQSAT: We need to check our implicit biases in the face of the Coronavirus outbreak

3 February 2020 7:44 AM

Coronavirus is not a Chinese disease – as in, attributable to Chinese-ness – any more than Foot and Mouth disease is attributable to Englishness, or any more than Ebola can be attributed to any cultural or racial factor of Africanness.
