SINKING FEELING

SINKING FEELING: South Africans responded with a mix of anger and resignation as the country’s other large and failing State-owned enterprise, Transnet, move to secure taxpayer support for its turnaround plan only months after Eskom was granted a R254-billion debt-relief package. The Transnet leadership have warned that absent an injection and debt relief the recovery plan will fail. The plan does open the door for more private sector participation in the ailing ports and rail systems, however. Photograph: Bloomberg
