Com­pe­tence more im­por­tant than colour

Finweek English Edition - - The Finweek -

THE SE­RI­OUS con­se­quences of SA’s in­creas­ing skills short­age in dif­fer­ent fields are draw­ing in­creas­ing crit­i­cism. Over the past week the me­dia as­so­ci­ated the skills short­age with var­i­ous prob­lems in the ju­di­cial sys­tem and SA’s wa­ter and elec­tric­ity sup­ply and even the new build­ing that col­lapsed in Rood­e­poort last week. BEELD WARNED that the tap wa­ter to towns is be­com­ing un­safe to drink and that the Vaal Dam is al­most a sewage dump. Busi­ness Day said when build­ings start col­laps­ing on work­ers, it’s cer­tainly not time to lower the ad­mis­sion re­quire­ments in the en­gi­neer­ing, ar­chi­tec­tural and build­ing in­dus­tries. Volks­blad said com­pe­tence is more im­por­tant than colour.
