    Andy Rice is a founding partner of Yellowwood Future Architects, a marketing strategy consultancy. In his other lives, he is the southern hemisphere's only supporter of Cambridge United Football Club, and was once upon a time the South African National Spoofing Champion. He has played football at Wembley and cricket at Lord's within the same weekend, but troubled the scorer on neither occasion. Things could only go up from here.

Three of the accused in the case of the Kalahari Resources hijacking - Haralambous Sferopoulos, Stephen Khoza, and Elvis Bongani Ndala - have been denied bail. They will remain in state custody in order to undergo mental observation. Magistrate Asika Ramlaal stated that she believed this to be in the interests of justice. The case will come before the Johannesburg Specialised Commercial Crimes Court again on 3 December.
