First they came for the Karoo, and people spoke up and told them to frack off. 

Now Shell wants to come for the oil and gas off our coasts, and appears to be facing a similar wave of opposition. 

There’s intrigue, there’s the possibility of oil, there’s sounds explosions, there’s politics, there’re calls for a boycott and there’s the possibly of dead ocean life.

In this week's episode of SA Money Report, Fin24s sustainability expert Lameez Omarjee provides a seismic blast of information, helping us to understand what's Shell's plans are for waters off the Eastern Cape, and why people are so furious about it.  


The aim of this weekly series is to take complex issues and break them down in a way that gives listeners an insight into a world that can often be impenetrable, either because of really dense figures, ratios and percentages - or because you need to navigate obscure financial terminology. 

New episodes of the show, hosted by Fin24 deputy editor Ahmed Areff, will be released every Friday.
