John Battersby is without question one of the finest journalists South Africa has ever produced, having edited and reported for major publications in his homeland and internationally. He left journalism to wave the Brand South Africa flag in London for over a decade, further expanding an already wide contact base.

Since leaving that post, Battersby has moved into consulting but returns occasionally to his first love, applying a cultured keyboard to sharing the inside track on matters of import.

Our interview on EFF leader Julius Malema’s visit to the UK was among the best read of Biznews.com’s recent posts. This brilliant analysis of what has become known as Nenegate is also sure to resonate.
