Factionalism, nepotism rife

11 June 2014, 07:32

Nobody wanted to admit it before, but even now the ruling party can see that their deployment of cadres, comrades and business associates in high places are not working.

Openly they admit that the factionalism, nepotism, ‘jobs for pals’, incapacities and the in capabilities of all government officials need to be investigated and monitored on a higher level. Isn’t it a bit late to now realize after 20 years that the people, who fill all of these fancy positions, are not capable nor have the capacity to do the job.

Take all the government run institutions, the SABC, ESCOM, DENEL, TELKOM and SAA. All of them have had their fair share of terms of office as Chief Executive Officers who would now come with a ‘turn around’ strategy to make it work and at the end of the day – a government bailout of billions to keep the SAA in the Air! Is that what a turnabout strategy is all about. When everything fails, which you don’t know in the first instance, you ask the Government for a bailout plan.

If the electricity network is under pressure because you have failed for the past 20 years to have a sufficient maintenance plan, then you increase the price of electricity and don’t forget, you do your maintenance work in the winter when the demand for electricity is at its highest and the result – load sharing on the cards for this winter!

How many Chief Executive Officers has these government institution had? Too many to even mention, and when they fail in their duty – don’t forget the golden handshake and all those perks and benefits and astronomical salaries that they earned while they were so busy with their ‘turn about strategy’, only to be working on their personal agendas and to make sure that the golden handshake can be enough for those years to come.

When are we going to realize that deployment is not the answer to being able to do the job. We need to have qualified; experienced people in the job, not like the SAA that now have a CEO that previously ran a catering company for an airline!! What a criteria to use to classify him as the most suitable person for the job, or is it again a cadre deployment and jobs for pals, that need to be rewarded for their struggle effort.

Isn't it time that we stop rewarding people for something that no one ever saw what they did, and now we have to pay him or her millions for holding a gun, or fighting a battle that was really never necessary, had we sat around a table in the beginning and resolved issues like grownups, and not like a revolutionary body and a political party?

What we need is people that have the experience, the knowledge and the know of how to do the job, and succeed in their efforts, and then reward then accordingly, not having a situation where incompetency’s, incapacities and incapability’s are rewarded with remuneration packages amounting to millions of Rands, but to do this we need to wake up and decide – vote with your mind, and forget what your heart tells you, as that which you so strongly believed in would happen under the new government, has never happened and will never happen in a million years
