ISIbalo House: Stats SA’s dream comes to life

CityPress - - Sport -

The dream has even­tu­ated for Statis­tics South Africa. Through blood, sweat and tears those we sent to se­cure a new home for Stats SA, did so. It was a dream that had turned into a night­mare as the pos­si­bil­ity for such a new home dis­ap­peared from the hori­zon. We had hoped to have this dream re­alised in 2009 on the oc­ca­sion of the 57th Ses­sion of the In­ter­na­tional Statis­tics In­sti­tute, but that was not to be. A dream de­ferred was a dream to be de­liv­ered, for an idea whose time has come can­not be sus­pended. How­ever, it takes courage, abil­ity to im­ple­ment, and above all, dis­ci­pline to de­liver. The Stats SA team that led this pro­ject on our be­half is a shin­ing ex­am­ple of what is pos­si­ble, and proof that it can be done is right here in front of us. It can be achieved on time, to spec­i­fi­ca­tion and to cost.
