Johannesburg business owners and members of a range of chambers where served ‘Smarties’ for breakfast at a botched event hosted by the City of Johannesburg (CoJ) on Friday.


When the Metro’s Finance MMC Geoffrey Makhubu arrived about 30 minutes late, he was prepared for the wrong topic of discussion.


The invitation to the event, sent out by the Johannesburg Department of Economic Development, invited Johannesburg’s business chambers to join the MMC to “discuss the City’s future financial plans”.

I'm sure the PA got fired. Assuming he had one :)

Don't touch anything to do with government - including their smarties :D.

This is abysmal. But you cannot expect more from some of the clowns in CoJ.

Can't fault the logic. Smarties for smart business people.

The person who got the catering tender must be smiling all the way to the bank.
