Over the past few months I’ve received emails showing an astronomical restaurant bill for a party of 10. Details of this night of gluttonous excess show it cost over R8 000 per diner, inconceivably high in SA. The mail hit my inbox again yesterday, but with a new twist.
This freshly recycled campaign starts with a picture of SA President Jacob Zuma swigging champagne followed by a headlined claim that he was the mystery benefactor of the Signature restaurant in Morningside. My correspondent added his own derogatory commentary. Presumably he distributed his "discovery" to others, perpetuating fake news at its rampant worst.
