R5 000 000??? What???

My heart is still palpitating uncontrollably thanks to last week's episode of Dragon's Den South Africa where one of the Dragons, Lebo Gunguluza parted with R5 000 000. Perhaps I should write it in full just in case I've missed a zero. He parted with five million rands ON HIS OWN!!! When all the dragons… Continue reading R5 000 000??? What???
