Nothing strange about it. Government does not want cheap telecoms. End of story.

Get someone who is knowledgable of the business, not a Govt appointee. Someone like Alan Knott-Craig could really shake things up! Someone with get and go!
Unfortunately the ANC seems incapable of making honest, genuine appointments. All their get and go has got up and left!

Well you know these days thanks to Zuma just being old is becoming a qualification.

Another Mugabe by all indications.

The ANC really needs to get their house in order if they are ever to be taken seriously - If South Africa itself is to be taken seriously in the international arena. Do we want to be another Zimbabwe? Its time the people decide if they are able to let go of the past and move to a brighter future.

Government continues to hamper South Africa’s telecoms industry with questionable communications ministry appointments

It's not just the telecoms industry .. current ANC is to the country as cancer is to good health.

Some of the communications ministers have been described as political appointments rather than being based on merit.

No **** Sherlock? The same thing happens with BEE where skin color trumps skills.

But then look at their leader, a self-serving corruptionista. Is it really any wonder?

This is not a very good show on the part of the ANC.
Coupled with all the massive corruption and ineptitude we see in other government departments, it really makes one begin to wonder what sort of education level and intelligence the members of this party have.
Maybe Zuma really believes that these people are competent?
Maybe he just does not have the necessary intelligence to see what the damage is that they are doing.

The ANC's "Jobs for pals" scheme is killing them from the inside out...

Wish the ANC would just hand it over to the DA to mess up.. that way it will either be a fail or success. Personally I think someone like AKC may have worked but lets face it, with the business deals involving son of his will that really be better? ;)

Ex Telecoms CEO would be best.. I think what Roy Padayachie showed was that a graduate in the right discipline is needed!

Well they don't do anything except endless planing conferences anyway so it doesn't really matter.

QUOTE OF THE CENTURY, MAYBE EVEN THE MILLENIUM

Some people have the vocabulary to sum up things in a way you can understand them. This quote came from the Czech Republic Main Daily Newspaper Editorial. Someone over there has it figured out.

"The danger to South Africa is not Jacob Zuma but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of a Zuma presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Zuma, who is a mere symptom of what ails South Africa. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.
The Republic can survive a Jacob Zuma, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their President.”

So tired of reading these types of articles.

Is there an end to any of this? I think not! Bye bye SA, grass may not be greener but I am prepared to take that chance.

So true.... Yet these fools will get what they deserve and in turn take the rest of us down with them....
