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

The portrayed "democracy" that is shared smacks of racism and has put the shackles of oppression around the necks of each and every one of us.
The government has certainly improved on the manner of racial divide in identifying its subject as African, Coloured, Asian or White and ensured the recognition of the disabled as a bonus. The law has with great talent exposed itself by giving advantages to their subjects based on the colour of skin. The government just uses the term…Continue

"You blocks, you stones, you worth than senseless things. O you hard hearted men" ........................................of a vicious government. Do you know the meaning of freedom. Do you genuinely believe that your executive, management and those who follow blindly practice freedom? Do you understand impeccable trust when you are accorded a position of Leadership of a country where inhumanity towards humanity was the practice for hundreds of years, here in our country. What did you mean…Continue
I find the entire debacle around the "Pale Male" appointments hilarious, revolting and almost an insult to say the least.
In reality the creation of employment equity in its present form pointing at Senior Executive Level is costing our economy a pretty penny in lost opportunities, investment growth, poor results for sustainable socio-economic development of the masses of disadvantaged communities.
The system is not working, not since democracy in 1994, twenty years later our…Continue

It has become evident that hundreds of thousands of employees in all sectors of commerce & industry, including government departments and municipalities are frustrated with the leadership and management in their sectors of work.
It is evident that executives in human capital positions require innovative thinking and skills in order to find common ground between employers and employees that can reduce…Continue

The continuous labour strikes, the inability of business to change its attitude towards people and the inability of the labour movement to represent the workers independantly from its alliance with the ruling party, all of these players are reducing our democracy and our economy to naught!
The one most important factor to getting better returns on investments, satisfying the basic need of our society, and returning the workers and management to working in harmony is none other than…Continue

It is true that real change and transformation is taking place, however government need to take charge of their responsibilities in "House Cleaning" as it appears that there are too many "dead wood" of the previous regime still in control in key areas of government and in commerce & industry.
Many of the key areas in government entities that require human capital review are in sectors of education, water, energy, construction, and in social development, and perhaps many more. It…Continue

I had the privilege of facilitating teaching of learners who are extremely alert and competent in Economics and Economic Management Sciences from Grade 8's to Grade 11's.
Nothing gives me more satisfaction to knowledge and wisdom as I found a young girl only known to me as Zartashia from Baloch, a country under occupation by Pakistan. The deeper understanding of cultures, values, leadership..... from international politics to conservation, eco-systems and then she so aptly responds to…Continue

One expects government, business and labour to be happy with the budget speech of the Minister of Finance as it relates to "if there is no bread, give them cake to eat".
It is an absolute travesty of justice that equality, equity, fairness, and looking after the law abiding citizens are not really being taken seriously, then I rest my case. How does the Minister respond to real poverty, starvation, crime and a host of other social and economic issues that will hit the ordinary person…Continue

No one, but no one, friend or foe dare to challenge government on its landslide catastrophe in the welfare, economics, international relations, education, investments and many other sectors that affects societal development.
If there still remain opportunist on the "gravy train" then get off and run for cover. The honourable President is certainly badly informed on the State of the Nation as well as the State of the Country. The way we are handling the strike issues on the mines and…Continue

Is it really true that skills development is addressing the needs of our ailing economy....................... when so many young people are unemployed, serious talks and discussions of retrenchments in the agri and mining sectors, and closure of mines.
What impact has this on our economy, our livelihood and the serious sorrowful ability to enhance the quality of life of the many economically disenfranchised. The people responsible for education need to focus on the critical shortage…Continue
