I have seen this sticker of a hand with thumb and forefinger trying to pick something, with the words "Kwaal" underneath it. Can someone explain to me the significance of it? I've seen it on taxi's etc...

When you find the answer, will it add inches to your dick, put extra money in your pocket or food on the table? If the answer is No look up to the sky and sing Marley's 3 little birds

It's when you've got a grudge with someone. "I've got a kwaal with you"

It says "kwaal" and shows a bent finger, like this is my "kwaal". I thought it meant the driver had erectile dysfunction.

Like "leave me alone it doesn't work anyway"...

Jealousy is what it means
In their culture, there is an issue surrounding those of them that are more affluent than others.
I was told this by one of my former workers

Interesting. The version I know of is disease or ailment.

Die mense is versin...
No man, kwaal is beef, as Hunter said, when you have kwaal with someone it means you have a grudge with that person, where do you get that one about a disease?

As @dabean linked, it is an afrikaans word meaning ailment. As in:
"Ek het verskeie kwale, onder andere vigs, aambeie en loopmaag. Dit is 'n vreeslike ingewikkelde gat siekte."

It has a different meaning in this context.

This is cool! I'm soooo putting a sticker like that on my car. In my context it will have two meanings.
