A modern-day: tower: of a worldly :power:
When I presented my case to a senior Financial Reporter at one of the biggest Newspapers in Africa this is what she said to me : "But Mr Harris, everybody knows what the banks are doing. Yours is not a newsworthy story that the .... will print". It was quite a shock to be told that it is not even 'newsworthy' anymore, what this bank is up to. noseweek did run two articles. These can be seen at www.noseweek.co.za Issue 87 and Issue 100. I thank the GOOD Lord for Mr Martin Welz and Mr Hans Muhlberg and for the dedicated staff at noseweek.
