    Admit it, you would be frothing at mouth by now if it was the ANC with the inadequately qualified AA candidate with just a matric earning that much money. I don't buy the coolness, where's the cadre deployment, pigs at the trough, looting and all the usual snide comments?

    Denialism is the hallmark of all DA lieutenants here on MyBB. Join the club.

    The difference is you lot want legislation that judges people's competence by their skin colour. If you want legislation like that, then you cannot complain when people use the evidence of said legislation as proof of inadequate qualifications.

    That aside.

    Lets say the DA do as they should and fire Msimanga for his role in this. I would bet R1000 that you and the ANC would say how evil and racist they are for firing a black person

    Well they should just rectify the mistake and get the proper waiver. Then they should review the salary structures before they hire anyone new. This is still left over from the last administration who overpaid all their freinds. Firing Msimanga would be a bit extreme.

    I am just demanding a little consistency if you guys are even capable of that. Are you not the ones who are always moaning because people without the required qualifications are put into big money positions?

    I am very surprised that no one has threatened to leave for overseas in protest of thus blatant cadre deployment? If your DA were to charge Msimanga for this and dismiss him we would all know what the fuss is all about not so? Why would anyone cry racism? My question now is how many unqualified DA cadres are in high paying position because of the abuse of these waivers? Surely Msimanga is not the only one? How many can we find in Cape Town?

    First try to do it undercarpet by not following proper procedure? (Why was proper procedure not followed in the first place? ) Then when you are caught you want to follow the proper process?

    Still remember someone called Dr Thoahlane Thoahlane?, Tshwane has a history of paying people very well, extremely well.

    **Edit: only saw the trillion part now.

    You're getting a bit ahead of yourself here pretending he is guilty of some serious wrong doing when they just didn't include a form to waive that she doesn't have a degree. And the HR person would normally sort out this details, so that person is more guilty than the mayor.

    Nah we've switched to a join them if you cannot fight them policy, now we're advocating that if the ANC can do it the DA should be able to do it even better, crime & corruption included. After all why should the ANC be the only party who think laws don't apply to them?

    What about the little problem of Msimanga trying to distance himself from the situation but it later transpires that he was indeed part of the people who made the appointment possible? We cool there as well, lying is also allowed from our highly esteemed DA leaders?

    But let's do the usual, blame it on some junior person.
