Crazy things to waste your money on

Over the past few weeks, South Africa has experienced a turbulent time.

President Jacob Zuma reshuffled his cabinet and fired finance minister Pravin Gordhan and his deputy Mcebisi Jonas.

The rand plummeted, and within days the ratings agencies S&P Global and Fitch downgraded the country’s credit rating to junk status.

This is bad news for the country, with the rand expected to stay under pressure and the country’s economic growth expected to slow.

Before Zuma messes up the rand even further, it may be time to blow your hard-earned cash on cool items which you do not need.

Wielding a rubber band machine gun in Batman suit is a good place to start.
