Also on the list were Gauteng education MEC Barbara Creecy, Frank Chikane, Minister of Trade and Industry Rob Davies, Public Enterprise Minister Malusi Gigaba, Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan, Science and Technology Minister Derek Hanekom, and Agriculture Minister Tina Joemat-Petterson.

    An organisation that nominates criminals (and I don't mean crimes of the "freedom-fighting" type) deserves everything it gets. And likewise, the people who vote for that organisation...
