Mahlangu out of depth

Business Day - - OPINION -

I am amazed that Dr Lu­cas Nty­intyane has the temer­ity to try to but­ter us up over Qedani Mahlangu by point­ing out the good work she has ap­par­ently done in the past (For­mer MEC no mon­ster, Novem­ber 13).

With a huge blun­der like the one she did, I won­der why she is not be­hind bars al­ready, but is “study­ing” in the UK. Does she even have the ca­pac­ity for an MBA?

As the MEC, the buck stopped with her — even if the de­ci­sions were made by oth­ers in her depart­ment, she could have over­rid­den them if she was in­tel­li­gent enough.

I will not call her a mon­ster but a per­son com­pletely un­suited for the po­si­tion and out of her depth.

This is the prob­lem with our gov­ern­ment putting un­qual­i­fied peo­ple in se­nior po­si­tions — we are today one step away from the precipice. JM Bou­vier Bryanston
