No-nonsense Judith February a 'Jill of all trades'

Posted on 06/07/2022

She's a writer, a columnist, an author, a lawyer, political analyst, former sports administrator, trustee at the Nelson Mandela Foundation, as well as the new executive officer at Freedom Under Law (FUL). Judith February has more titles than Rafa Nadal. She's a veritable 'Jill of all trades' (I don't know if that's a thing, but it is now), a passionate South African, and thoroughly determined, as she puts it, "to be the last one to turn off the lights". In this broad-ranging interview with February, BizNews editor Michael Appel covers instalments of her vast career which led her to her latest challenge at FUL. He taps into her experience in the political-analysis realm, with President Cyril Ramaphosa fending off questions about millions of dollars in cash stolen from his home, as South Africans awoke to the news of the arrest of the Gupta brothers in Dubai.
