Apologies can heal the soul of Africa.

I have been reading and listening to the racial anger that is being shouted out from all manner of leaders in our country.

SKILLS DEVELOPMENT: A VITAL CATALYST FOR SA’S ECONOMIC AND BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT

South Africa has grown substantially since 1994 and while progress has been made to reduce poverty and inequality, the country still has its shortcomings. Millions of South Africans remain unemployed and unskilled, and as a result many households still live close to the poverty line.

The Statistics SA Quarterly Labour Force Survey recently revealed that during the first quarter of 2012, the number of unemployed individuals rose by 282 000, reaching 4.5 million and accounting for 25.3%…

18 years and the prospect of getting into a…
