1. These tax campaigns are all good and well, but just know whose message you receive here. #Tisa is driving this campaign - Tisa's members include #BritishAmericanTobacco & #ImperialTobacco. Their tax evading shenanigans world wide is very well covered.
#TobaccoWars
2. #Tisa funded an Ipsos study (usually doing good work, but not this time) on the illicit tobacco market. You'll not be surprised that #BritishAmericanTobacco's biggest local competitors - #GoldLeafTobacco – has been “ousted” as the biggest cigarette smugglers.

3. I wrote a piece about #Tisa's tactics here, in the latter part of this article analysing #SARS stats: dailymaverick.co.za/article/2018-0…

7years now since I last saw you.

I went home last week, some guys were making trouble for women on the road, I was passing by and one of them said "ọ kwa nwanne fifty, rapụ ya" (That's fifty's sister, leave her) I didn't know if I should cry or laugh.
#WhenTheySeeUs #EndSARS
November 29th 2012, I got a call that #Sars arrested all the people that went for the child dedication at Ajali that day. Mum told you not to go but you insisted he was your friend's first child.
Where are you brother? We miss you?
#WhenTheySeeUs #ENDSARS
Last anyone saw you (mum did) was in #sars custody at Awkuzu yet they kept denying that you were there. We sold that land at Nibo, You know? We sold it to pay for your freedom but it wasn't to be. Human rights activists scammed us, lawyers scammed us, police commissioner said...

This is Pinky Khoabane the owner of Uncensored Opinion which published a video of Angelo Agrizzi calling blacks kaffirs. At Agrizzi's house was former #NPA prosecutor & current DA MP #GlynnisBreytenbach seen playing with Agrizzi's monkey.
#StateCaptureInquiry #BosasaBribes
#Bosasa is a white run company, why did they only have black journalists on their payroll? Is it a case of black being corrupt?
#BosasaBribes #StateCaptureInquiry
#PinkyKhoabane
If #Agrizzi is so sure about #PinkyKhoabane et al, why didn't he include their names in his original affidavit that he submitted to #StateCaptureInquiry? The names just popped up from nowhere.

1/ The country’s profile got bleaker this week for a host of reasons - impetuous regulatory behaviour, refugees left out in the cold, a needless rise in public recurrent spending and an unshackled rogue police squad.
2/ Nothing illustrates #Nigeria’s dysfunction as much as the minimum wage palaver. The ₦27,000 ($75) or even ₦30,000 ($83) is not much – those that earn it will hover around the poverty line.
3/ The issue is that even such a wage is beyond the capacity of @AsoRock to pay, and for many small businesses as well, this will represent a massive upswing in cost. There is a disconnect between value creation by the workforce, and how much they earn.

Wow. Just had my first #SARS experience and my biggest mistake was allowing myself get so comfortable in this town.

I didn’t even realize it was SARS until I left.
So i left my power bank at an office I’m freelancing close to my house. Receptionist dropped it with the bartender of a place next door. I’m supposed to be traveling early but I got back late so I had to head there pretty late to get it.
Went with my cousin. No light and phones were dead and I like their shrimp springroll so we sat down to use style and charge.

Got my power bank, tried to order Uber, no car available, Taxify was surging 2500 for a ride I paid 500🙄

Cousin said let’s just go take Keke N50

#StateCaptureInquiry Remember when @TreasuryRSA Minister of Treasury Nhlanhla Nene answered eNCA’s @samkelemaseko asking if he would testify? Nene said, “Watch this space.” And later, after some pressing from Maseko, “Watch the space, meaning a lot of us might be appearing soon.”
#StateCaptureInquiry Nene will be the first sitting minister to testify at the inquiry. Previously Minister of Public Enterprises Pravin Gordhan attended hearings, when his former right hand man Mcebisi Jonas testified, saying a Gupta brother offered him the Finance Minister job.
#StateCaptureInquiry Nene will testify on events around then President Jacob Zuma firing him at night on 9 December 2015. Zuma said at the time, “I wish Mr Van Rooyen all the best in this new appointment. The new deployment of Mr Nene will be announced in due course.”

"Trump has seethed to confidants that he views the Manafort charges as “a warning shot” from Mueller. He has told those close to him that as he watches the courtroom proceedings, he fears that Donald Trump Jr. could at some point be the one on trial"

Good morning from New York, and grab your raincoats.

More for what’s likely to go on inside the court for the Michael Cohen proceedings today than outside.

Look out for the live-feed soon and read the story below. 🔽
Let's get the jargon reminders out of the way so that you can refer to it quickly later.

Michael Avenatti has pro hac vice and intervention motions pending.

"Pro hac vice" = "for the occasion," as in to appear in federal court here, rather than California, where he's licensed.
Intervenor: A nonparty -- not a plaintiff or defendant -- who has an interest in the case.

Trump and the Trump Organization have been granted intervention so far.

Now, Avenatti wants it to be Stormy's turn.

Last week I tweeted that I thought @MichaelAvenatti scoop about Cohen shell companies came from a #FinCEN leak. I went on @allinwithchris the following night & discussed that the info could have come from #Fincen or perhaps the financial institutions. Tonight @RonanFarrow /1
Confirmed that the leader of the #SARS was from #FinCEN. I must admit when @RonanFarrow and I spoke this week, I was stunned about the possibility that someone could have removed SARS. I felt that there is no way this could happen short of work by a nefarious actor. But, I also/2
Would share that I am not worried whether Mueller’s team has the SARs. I’ve been tweeting since March 2017 that I believe that #FinCEN holds the key to #TrumpRussia, in part because the SARs are filed and the data collected long before Trump got elected. Which means that from /3

#mySARSexperience. (Thread) My encounter with #SARS occurred while I was on a trip somewhere between Ajaokuta and Anyigba in Kogi State. They had set up a roadblock and flagged me down.When I stopped, one of them came over and asked for the car particulars I obliged. #ScrapSARS
Finding nothing wrong with the papers, he asked for the receipt of my number plate! Number plate receipt? I told him I didn't have and he said he will arrest me and take me to the station, that's when I lost my cool #ScrapSARS
And told him I wasn't going anywhere as no law states that I must have my number plate receipt! He cocked his gun and threatened to shoot me.I don't know where the courage came from, I dared him and told him to go ahead and shoot me. #ScrapSARS
