      @Anthony If CEO of SABC can be without matric, imagine what are the requrements for taxi driver. Probably something like "Can you hold an oval object in your hands and rotate?" What STOP signs are you talking about? They are for mhulungu, not for ubuntu.....Eish man.

      @John - an oval object? Really? not a round object?
