Did you forget CR was the deputy president right? You know he had some influence, he was also in charge of the load shedding enquiries. So far CR is great at doing one thing, which is absolutely nothing. He's not done a single thing that is worthwhile.
I'm pretty sure if the wasn't connected he wouldn't be a businessman as he's the king of Nothing.
Not denying any of that, just saying anyone would have a tough time sorting out this mess that JZ left behind.
