    The Limpopo government is known for sidelining non-Pedis. This seems to be one of those things! Remove Shangaans and Venda from high positions and replace them with Pedis. This has been the agenda for a very long time in that province, so this does not surprise me, never.

    In 2006! it's too late, you cant get the money back, they still keep the salary for the last 4 years and now taking the same salary (plusn increase) at home on suspension. You need to find this stuff out and take action at the time. Useless.
