As the world slowly returns back to work - have we learned anything? Will we change our lives? asks Melanie Verwoerd.
Morning clouds. Cool.
President Cyril Ramaphosa has reiterated that there are no conditions to the R33bn loan from China Development Bank to Eskom, and none of SA's assets will be seized in the event of a default.
In July, President Cyril Ramaphosa announced that Eskom had secured a $2.5-billion loan from a Chinese state bank. The last time this bank lent money to one of our state-owned entities, the Guptas got rich.
The president will be asked to describe the terms of a R33.4bn Chinese state-owned bank loan to Eskom when he answers questions in the National Council of Provinces.
Euphoria over money pouring in from China is premature until we know the crucial details - otherwise it may just be a Trojan horse, says Terry Bell.
