    Is there an competent politician except Trevor Manual and the likes in this government. Serious, where is our competent business leaders. Surely they can play a big role in the appointment of qualified competent people in government. Why are thiefs and fraudsters in government not jailed. Stupid people making stupid laws to protect criminals and criminilising innocent people for protecting themselves.
