Is genetic testing expensive?
I would like to have myself tested to find out what race I am (like the tests done on that Carte Blanche programme about where the various races come from), because if I am the right race, I can get a specific job. Is it expensive for the test, and where can I be tested?

Dear Mary

The genetic test discussed in the Carte Blance program costs more than R 1000 and you can contact me directly by email at for more more details if you are interested to have the test done. Alternatively you can contact the researchers at WITS University who developed the test.
