"...are set to leave South Africa on an all-time high"."making the difficult but well-deserved decisions...""respectable companies"?????"Don't sleep on this opportunity".It is not nice to condemn people, especially the weak but... I dunno.... I dunno what to say. Somebody help me, please. I'll back you up, but I shouldn't be the one to pass fair comment, I don't think. Do you think that the answer is to just stop caring, maybe? Perhaps.But it's in the public domain... and it is released by a company passing itself off a professional PR/marketing company in events.... I dunno anymore where to draw the line.Somebody please help, man.
