NO MORE PRIME – It makes the kids mad!

National Association of School Governing Bodies want to ban the Prime Hydration drink from schools.

The reason for this is because Matakanye Matakanye from the National Association of School Governing Bodies says it makes kids mad.

Prime created a frenzy on the 1st of May when the drink launched in South Africa at Checkers stores. At just R39.99 the drink became an instant sell out at most checkers stores following it’s initial cost of R500 for a 500ml.

Kaya Biz discussed whether this was a marketing gimmick?

Kaya Biz tackled the topic with Renaldo Phillips the Head Buyer of Private Label and Imports at Checkers:

From Homeless to a Master’s Degree

He kept a diary and copies of his degree and master’s proposal in a plastic bag and visited libraries during the evening. His actions and the help of the public helped Nzimande to realise his dream.
