It's not mathematics, it is basic arithmetic. And, yes, she can't do it.

Neither can the rest of the ANC.

What am I reading ??? R22.9bn worth of petrol & diesel or 22.9bn liters of petrol & diesel :confused: Who wrote this or said this??? Do we use 22 billion litres of petrol & diesel p/a... ?

Either way ... the Minister probably has no "real" matric / university qualifications (going by typical ANC modus operandi :D )

Chinese maths?
Anyone ever seen an abacus in action?

I used to visit some of the Chinese factories outside East London and watching them use an abacus was like watching a good magician.
The beads whizzed back & forth so fast that I thought they would overheat.

Well Verwoerd did manage to make maths hard for blacks .. :whistling:

Although I suspect it's more a case of outright dishonesty with her than lack of ability to do the math.

You're not allowed to say that.

Well, yes.

On the other hand, I'm often spectacularly bad at arithmetic myself, although I'm a competent mathematician.:D

Around that much. Consumption figures for the first six months of this year (from the Depatment of Energy's website) indicate that we used 11.925 billion litres of pertol and diesel.

That's right, different things.

Maybe the ANC are good at maths, who knows ?

But they sure as hell are really bad at arithmetic,

I have never seen the ANC being able to return data, probability and statistics into results.
