State lets crooks handle education - DA

Cape Town - Speaking in a debate on access to tertiary institutions for poor, deserving under- and post-graduates, Wilmot James, Democratic Alliance spokesperson on basic education, urged the government to abandon what he called the National Democratic Revolution as the guiding
approach in its appointments.

James told the National Assembly on Tuesday that the Eastern Cape provincial government last week rehired Modidima Mannya as superintendent general of education.

"Mr Mannya was rehired even though he left the post in 2001 after being threatened with criminal charges by the education MEC, who claimed he had failed to perform his duties," James said.

"Last year he was suspended and dismissed as head of the KwaZulu-Natal Department of Agriculture after a disciplinary hearing found him guilty of 16 charges of misconduct."

James said Mannya has now been recruited to rescue a department that received a disclaimer from the auditor general.

"Government recycles crooks to look after our children's education," James said.

    I am not amazed. Any person with the slightest bit of intelligence should not be amazed. I just put this down to one of the jokes of 09 Nov 2010. Unfortunately, 10 Nov 2010 will bring even better (worse?) jokes. Viva the ANC, Viva Mandela that still supports the ANC, Viva to the ANC supporters than cannot see... Viva ons vir jou Suid Afrika

    Not surprising as the whole education system is a con job. The youth was dumbed down till they were easily loaded on a bandwagon of violence retribution, crime and disrespect. The perfect fodder for the mob revolution that the SACP have desired all these years. Perfect candidates to be incited into genocide against boers by the ANCYL leader. Perfect for helping the economy slow down. Perfect for what the money merchants of the west have paid the SACP so handsomely to do. "Freeze try resources in the third world for future generations in the New "global viliage' that we are fermenting. In the Palladium tradition - "ordo ab chao"

    Government itself is a con - paying tax to a criminal government, is a con - paying taxes on petrol for roads, is a con - emnploying criminals in the SAPS to uphold the law, is a con - the ANC is just plain conning us. South African is now a criminal state.
