Old man shot with AK47 for his cell phone

An old man who drives children around with a mini-bus was attacked by armed robbers in Johannesburg last week. They demanded his cell phone and money and then they shot him twice with an AK47, the terrorist's choice. The photograph is of what is left of his foot after having been shot.

Don’t panic – we’ll make it

By Peter Hughes

We've had to deal with shock cost increases before. All we need are cool heads, calm analysis and decision-making.

The massive minimum wage rate increase for farm labour will go down in the history of South Africa as one of the most damaging and short-sighted acts ever committed by our government. Having got that off my chest – what now? Incompetent political leaders are a fact of life and, as managers, we're going to have to learn to deal with them. But how?

In order to survive, a business has to make a profit. There are two ways to do this. Get revenue up. Get costs down. And while I'm about it, let's get one thing straight, once and for all. Creating employment is not up to you, it's government's job.
To do this, government should create an environment for business to thrive. When this happens, employment automatically follows.

As a business manager, you have one job – to run a profitable and sustainable business.
