Lightning 'doesn't strike White'

11 May 2012, 07:06
I find myself stunned that a supposedly educated women can utter such absolute rubbish. Didn't she go to school? Does she have access to the internet? My God this is truly frightening that this is the person in charge of the health dept for KZN.KwaZulu-Natal MEC for co-operative governance and traditional affairs, Nomsa Dube, called on the national department of science and technology to investigate the causes of lightning after seven people died in lightning strikes.


 


"We will do an investigation and talk to the department of science and technology on what is the cause of the lightning, and if it only happened to the previously disadvantaged as I have never seen any white people being struck by lightning" said Dube. She was visiting Mpumazi in Eshowe where seven people from two families died after being struck by lightning on Sunday. "Scientists from the department could perhaps help us and come up with instruments that could help community members protect themselves against lightning. The department has dealt with floods and fires, but lightning is new to us," said Dube.

Very sharp observation by our leaders, we are so fortunate to have such brilliant leaders, it gives me a warm feeling in my heart. ____________________________________
Our country is clearly in excellent hands!

Her ignorance is not really the issue, but to place someone of such limited knowledge/education in such a position of responsibility surely is?
