The South African government and ruling party’s frequent promises to stamp out corruption and carry the country to new levels of economic prosperity are sounding increasingly hollow.

Yes, there have been some hesitant actions from Luthuli House, which continues to entertain the public with its countless ‘suspend or not’ debates and ridiculous imposition of deadlines to effect the simplest of disciplinary steps. But the corrupt are so entrenched, and their practices so pervasive, that small victories on the fringes cannot stop the ooze from spreading.

This writer is still wrestling with how the country’s soon-to-be notorious power ships deal was even considered in the context of an environmental, social and governance (ESG) world.

QUESTION

Do you believe this is the toughest period for financial advice in many years?

ANSWER

Yes, it’s hard to navigate the challenges and difficult to adapt. I’m struggling.
No, I have managed to navigate the challenges and have adapted. I’m good.
50/50. I just feel like whether we like it or not, we have to ready ourselves for change… be resilient and scale for the future. It’s not about survival of the fittest anymore but survival of the quickest. We just have to move on with life.
