It is like some here are "genetically" high IQ and Newton & Einstein were also high IQ but that is where the comparison ends.
In die land van blindes kraai eenoog koning.
Well, firstly, the point I was addressing was that government positions are used as a quid pro quo here, I never said anything about anyone being unskilled, although that also occurs.
Secondly, I never said anything about it making a difference, the point was that it's not unique to SA, so it's hardly where our problem 'starts'.
Thank you. We've been trying to tell that to you the past ten years. Being able to somehow justify or talk away something does not make it right, does not remove the result.Our military did not fail us, our government did.
What? When were NATs in power? And weren't they the good old days when rand got us 2 dollars? And our friends in Soweto was happy? Bring it on I say.Thank you.

/At this rate, in 20 - 30 years, we'll get you to wish the NATs were back again, we were in '94 and we could hold out for a better deal for all the people ...

The Editor’s Notebook (“From hardly any debt to financial aid”, August 3) refers. SA entered the 2000s with a debt-to-GDP ratio of 43%, which was reduced to 27% by 2008 under the steady and trusted hands of finance minister Trevor Manuel and president Thabo Mbeki.
On May 10 2009 Jacob Zuma appointed Pravin Gordhan as finance minister, and during his first five years in that position the country’s debt-to-GDP ratio increased from 27% to 47%, undoing all the hard work of his predecessor. That was the original sin.
It was no different during Gordhan’s second, shorter stint, during which the increase in the debt ratio accelerated. It has been unstoppable since. Gordhan is now public enterprises minister, and it is evident that he is wholly unsuited for such a position given his insistence on bailing out a hopelessly insolvent state-owned airline, at whatever cost to taxpayers.
Moan that a Minister is not adequately qualified for a job that does not need qualifications and moan even more when the DG is adequately qualified for the job.In 1987 Kudjoe attained her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Law specialising in Criminal Law at Kishinev State University (KSU) in the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR), a qualification certified by South African Qualifications Authority as an Honours degree.
Oh yes. Criminal law Soviet style. Absolutely relevant qualification today. I'm sure Alexander Solzhenitsyn and the thousands of Gulag prisoners would be so proud.
