    Rand no more

    I know many are already calling the new notes "Madiba's" but would it be fitting to officially call it that? Would be a fantastic tribute I feel.
    The South African Madiba....sounds good.

    With small value coins becoming redundant, I feel if they ever rename our currency, they should also revalue it - say R10 to M1 (one Madiba). It would solve a lot of rounding problems...
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Why on earth would anyone want to name a currency after a mere man?
