Cracks in the Home
WHAT HAPPENED PAPERS HAD FUN reporting on the “chaotic” Department of Home Affairs after the release of the long-awaited report by a multi-departmental team on the state of affairs in the department. Poor leadership was pointed out as the main problem. Minister Nosivive Mapisa-Nqakula heaped the blame on others in the department but has still not proposed any constructive plans to remedy the situation. THE Sunday Times says Mapisa-Nqakula must take responsibility for the mess. The paper said that under her leadership, Home Affairs has gone from bad to worse. Rapport said it’s cause for concern that she’s hiding behind labour laws. The paper said that the situation is so bad that an improvement is only possible if those who are incompetent are dismissed and the rest are given a warning and retrained from scratch.
