About Me:

I am a patriotic South African. I believe in our country's true potential and that we can become an international power house. This can only be done through the involvement of every citizen.
I have worked in the Nuclear industry for over 20 years. I started my career at Koeberg Nuclear Power station in 1992. I have a passion for the diversity of the people in the Nuclear Industry and their abilities. I believe Nuclear can be a viable option under the correct conditions. We need to continuously second guess ourselves and ensure that we do not bring a Nuclear Nuremburg on ourselves when the future generations take the helm.

Why on earth has a method not been found to lock the drain covers in place if it was so easy and fast to roll out new and often faulty water meter that would shut off water supply if you go over the limit?

There seems to be a simple concept missing from the renewable energy debate when listening to talk shows and reading articles on the topic.

During the 2nd day of the 2016 SONA debate the minister of Energy Tina Joemat-Pettersson showed how misinformed or uneducated she was on all matters related to Nuclear and Energy.

The more I reflect on my past 18 years experience in the Nuclear industry, the more I realise that the world wide nuclear industry might one day face the same fate as the German officers found guilty of war crimes and prosecuted at the trials in Nuremberg post World War 2.

I started my career within the South African Nuclear industry at Koeberg Nuclear Power Station in 1992. The country was going through a serious transition at the time that brought with it excitement as well as trepidation.

If you are concerned about the oversight issues in the Nuclear industry, the nuclear new build public participation process is a great opportunity to make your voice heard.
