His son apparently was involved in receiving some or the other "payment" of half-a-bar, for being involved in a deal.The opposition parties are questioning this. Cyril said he will be the first to hold his son accountable, and will even take him to the police station himself.......whatever that means :roll: :roll:

So it's 13.99 at the weekend. Whats the excuse now, is it the weak dollar, weak pound, weak euro or weak aussie dollar? (because they are all weak of late). Or did that 100 to the $ end of 2015 bubble pop?

It's all about context....
In truth, the currency started from a very low base: the Nenegate crisis in 2015.

Who said the sky is the limit ? I think not.
