#TakingNames – SA Fights Back! - And Thisisacumen report.

Many may not know this, but Acumen Media records every major headline or social media story in SA daily and, once a week, I read all the posts that have the largest traction. I then measure them against one another to find out what you talked about the most. The short answer is still #Corruption, well corruption, #cigarettes or #booze and #Level2. And you thought it was #WomansDay. Tsk, are you mad?

There was one massive other story though, a tragedy and another loss for SA, the death of #BobMabena. At least we got the opportunity to celebrate the life of #TheJammer, thank you Bob for setting SA alight with love and kind words for the week. I’m happy that we see this outpouring of pure love for the media legend. The stats show almost 90 thousand mentions with over half a million people reacting to the untimely death of Bob Mabena and all with pure love. #ThisIsMySA

The President’s instruction for zero tolerance to corruption started to take its course this week and there were some really encouraging names put into the naughty corner, sadly most of them were names we didn’t recognise but remembering that our President is a chess player, will these “pawns” eventually lead to kings and queens of thieves? I have a good feeling.

Corruption - #YourMoveSA!

An Acumen Media Report 7th August 2020 (Seven Days)

The entire week was fraught with stories about corruption, we heard how it will not be tolerated, how much there is, how we are going to fight it, and how the ANC is embarrassed. I would find these things encouraging but then I saw #Phalane, remember the guy with the fancy stereo and car, he worked for the cops and was charged with tender fraud in 2017. This week he got fired, that’s three years of pay for a criminal and now he’s been fired. Where is his orange overall?

The President said that corruption would be dealt with and there would be an attitude of zero tolerance, and then we saw the PPE’s float down the river. Last week I lost hope in our President until I had a reassuring conversation with a talk show host, Shafique Morton. He reminded me that #Ramaphosa is a man who plays chess on a very dirty board. Perhaps he is waiting for these “cabinet members” to hang themselves? Am I holding onto a pipe dream? The other reality is far too hard to swallow.

Jackson Mthembu came out with these words: “We commit once again to fight all forms of corruption and malfeasance, especially committed by our members, leaders and public representatives. Where we have dropped the ball, we extend our sincere apologies but we shall make amends” – we commit, once again? Once again? We haven’t seen a single arrest under the State Capture commission, not a single making of amends. Is this how we handle corruption? With lengthy court cases that cost a fortune and then result in someone with over 800 charges ducking the courts for almost a decade? The words you were looking for Min. Mthembu are: “for the first time”, and sadly, the country doesn’t believe you. We especially don’t believe you when you send #AceMagashule to tell us the ANC will review doing business with “family”. I cannot wait to see this Ace in the pack become the Joker we see behind bars. #PuleMabe has had a tough ride with journos this week and it is astonishing that he doesn’t answer a single relevant question. When it’s raised, he simply says that is not his mandate. Read more

We fetched our nationals from #WuHan, surreal to see our President walking with a face mask at ORT. #Limpopo is in uproar that the repatriated citizens are being placed in a quarantined hotel in their province. @ThisIsAcumen Report Pt12 https://t.co/vnjbJ2Dmty

#coronavirus feels like a #ZombieApocalypse, yet we are repeatedly told this is “just a bad dose of flu”, most of us will survive and be good to go in two weeks or so”, so why are we locking down total countries? I must say I think I smell a rat. @ThisIsAcumen Report Pt12 https://t.co/PRyCH1XaJK

So here we are, the world economies are tanking, #toiletpaperwars, mass confusion and a conversation that produced over 671m results in one week. Yes 671 million! Here in SA over 1.2m people are talking about it in a 7 day period.

#Trump tells the world #Covid_19 has little impact on “American People” & declared “war on the FOREIGN virus”. Do you mean Caucasian people? #AskingForAFriend because you don’t get much whiter than the UK, Donnie. @ThisIsAcumen Report Pt10 https://t.co/xVoWm2N5H0
