So, here’s how trolling armies work. Malema names a bunch of us as Ramaphosa Defence Force. Four hours later, it’s got an acronym (RDF) and threats attached. Same way “stratcom” is used. It’s dangerous.

"... had the information been known to us, no cover would have been issued in the first place, and no claim would have been paid, regardless of the cause of death." This suggests Momentum won't give life cover to people with diabetes. It's a PMB disease! Am I misinterpreting?

True story. Regiments paid at least R4.15m from Safcol contracts to Homix and Hastauf, two Salim Essa controlled letterboxes in 2015. That's what we could pick up in our Trojan Horse investigation but there's probably more
