Epic sale and unbeatable tech deals

You’ve got to love SABC COO Hlaudi Motsoeneng. The man is in the press for months about the fact that he “allegedly” lied about having a matric certificate, and still has no problem giving a speech after the class of 2014’s results are announced.

“You have two kinds of people in this world. You have certificated people and educated people. You can have many degrees but also in that you need brain,” said Motsoeneng. “Because if you have paper and you don’t have brain you can forget.”

Inspiring words for the kids who spent just over a decade earning their qualification.

It might just be me, but Motsoeneng speaking about passing matric is a bit like Edward Snowden suddenly advocating for stricter government surveillance – I’m not buying it.

At least we can rest easy knowing that if Motsoeneng’s career at the SABC comes to an end he could slip into the motivational speaker circuit.

For those matrics who did pass, now’s the chance to milk your elders for your hard-earned rewards – like the goods we are featuring in this week’s best tech deals article.
