Times Live paywall abstract said:South Africa is in talks to sell [highlight]a majority stake[/highlight] in state-owned arms manufacturer Denel to oil-rich Qatar, capitalising on rising Middle Eastern tensions.
Both MyBB's news article and the abstract from the Times Live paywall mention "talks" to sell a stake in Denel to Qatar.
The only thing that surprises me about this is that Qatar is being considered as a potential stakeholder: I would have thought that other countries in that region would be a better fit, for example the UAE.
Perhaps the strategy is to get Qatar to bid whilst waiting for other countries in that region to put in a better bid.
