Freedom or Youth Day in South Africa resembles a host of activities around the country where not much happiness are seen among our youth and we need to question ourselves as many of us come out of the oppressive apartheid era.
It is humiliating to call any of our youth as an affirmative action (AA) or an employment equity (EE) appointment in any position in commerce and industry especially when such appointments are done in management and leadership positions, notwithstanding the fact…Continue

A number of variables require attention if we really want to get Sustainable Economic Growth & Development on track here in the Cape Metro region.
* We need to adopt a firm stand and commitment against racism, xenophobia and discrimination as these practices by government, labour, business sectors and civil society stifles economic growth
* The Beyond Leadership Programme is a must for all who are willing to accept that we have made little progress in finding and developing…Continue
I remain committed in portraying Cape Town City as the No. 1 Tourist attraction City in the World only when the branding of the City focus on the people who have slaved through decades apartheid, and now we are faced with so much racism, xenophobia and discrimination.
It is my Vision that Cape Town City will really aspire as the true and trusted Mother City once we acknowledge the contributions of so many of our forefathers, mothers, fathers brothers and sisters, uncles and aunts who…Continue

Call it what you like, it remains government with a strong nationalist foundation equal to that of an oppressive and discriminatory National Party government. Nationalism breeds discontent and justice and freedom are compromised.
Xenophobia is at the core of a fragmented government that tells the world of a democracy constitution when in fact most minority South African groups are disadvantaged through various discriminatory government policies and regulations that result in practices…Continue

Professor after professor of economics, political science, and the financial fundis will be there to help you in your stress and anxiety by overcoming the "bull" and to give the masses of people a sleeping pill.

It is a travesty of justice and in direct conflict with principles of freedom and democracy when the government enforce legislation based on race and culture on the commercial and business sectors as well as on civil society, that feed the mouths of the politicians and the nation at large.
The courts of law, political parties, and the corporate sectors, including religious organisations and academic institutions are silent on these issues in-spite of visible proof that the masses of…Continue

The most critical challenge for business, government and labour is to deal with any potential and significant investment that may be injected through BRICS, Britain, France, Germany and the United States. Our labour force deserves the best and with all of these challenges come opportunities, accountabilities and most importantly our responsibilities.
I am not sure whether we as a nation is able to match the human capital that may be required in order for the machinery of the economic…Continue
"Die een se dood is die ander se brood" Europe is in die nood, Amerika en Britanje is hopeloos te laat.
Africa has a major role to play in world economics and South Africa whilst still reeling from its racist past, need to "smell the coffee" and take corrective action NoW rather than later in contributing to racial and cultural emancipation and rescind all laws that prohibit the equal freedom, liberties, rights and support of all citizens as expected in a country that portrays freedom…Continue
The President of our nation has made great comments in proposing the industrialisation of the South African economy and also acknowledging that the global economies are "sick". We truthfully agree to these sentiments and we are prepared to assist and support our "rainbow nation" in accelerating the vision.
The notion of "..... the evil in men doth lie is oft interred in his bones ......." need to be remedied by all of us and we must be bold and prepared in creating the necessary…Continue
Now that I really have the attention of those who really believe that hanging on the culture-based sectarianism is the answer to the nation's survival must admit that Employment Equity (EE), Black Economic Empowerment (BEE), Affirmative Action (AA) and Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (BB-BEE) legislation have been central in the decline in our national economic position, as well as the decline in our quality of life, UBUNTU, security, business and entrepreneurial…Continue
My conscience has been challenging my Heart for over 20 years into our democracy and repeatedly tell me that Affirmative Action (AA), Employment Equity (EE), Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) and Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (BB-BEE) are are the latest "buzz" words for job reservation, Pluralism, segregation and Apartheid. It smacks as much like racism and oppression to me.
Can anyone justify that this system portrays a "free and fair" country that is sacred to its national…Continue

It is indeed challenging to recognise the many opportunities that are facing South Africa and its citizens in-spite of various negative sources on how the country is managed.
South Africa is in a quantum leap situation and have to look at all socio-political and economic scenarios that will create sustainable and measurable opportunities and jobs in order to ensure more equality and stability. The business sectors and civil society need to be much more active in developing and…Continue

It is realistic to assume that micro entrepreneurship can make a significant difference in creating opportunities for start-up businesses, and thereby creating essential jobs critical in the reduction of unemployment.
Mindset, however, will have to focus more on practical skills and labour intensive production and in spreading the profits more equitably with the workers. It is necessary that we spend more of our national resources in developing human skills and human capacities, build…Continue

Congratulations to our democratic government in initiating a Ministry for Small Business Development and recognising that the best part of our national economy is driven by entrepreneurs and small businesses.
It is a breakthrough for entrepreneurs and for the black masses of potential business people in that some major corporations and major sectors in our economy were certainly ensuring that such a ministry were left off the political agenda for the past twenty years in developing…Continue

If anyone or any business boasts the employment of talented MBA's (Masters in Business Administration) then I will be ashamed as it is precisely their knowledge and wisdom over the past thirty years (at least) that has resulted in the economies of the world, America, Europe and Britain in particular that have either shown a rapid decline or absolute bankruptcy in certain regions of the globe.
It is shameful that the focus is now on how to corrupt and destroy the African economies by…Continue

The politicians had the opportunity, so did the various education departments and academic institutions, not forgetting the business sectors who incidentally is now feeling the pinch of the economic downturn.
"For crying out aloud", what has become of those astute economists and entrepreneurs who were doing so well in keeping us proud in what we do well in keeping sustainable development of our economy on a reasonable growth path? How do we understand "freedom", "free market…Continue
It is with humility that I have accepted to serve as the Treasurer and the Education Project Director of The Education And Welfare Fondation.
Purpose: Is to promote and develop social and education projects for the people from the townships of the Western Cape that will enhance the quality of life of various disadvantaged communities and to build and strengthen the capacity and empowerment of the nation.
One feels somewhat helpless when the powers to be in creating a turn-around strategy in the human capital that are required to empower the helpless to enter the 1st & 2nd economies are not effective as the approach of leaving it up to the Sector Education & Training Authorities (SETA's) to give impetus to sustainable economic growth & development is a tall order indeed.
It will be interesting to attend sessions between SCOPA, SETA's and a Parliamentary Select Committee to…Continue
