Stan­dard re­sponse

Sunday Times - - Opinion -

Bu­sisiwe Mkhwe­bane, Baba kaD’s No 1 pro­tec­tor — who also moon­lights as the pub­lic pro­tec­tor — was back in par­lia­ment this week to ac­count for her (mis)man­age­ment of the of­fice in the past fi­nan­cial year. True to form, she used the op­por­tu­nity to ut­ter the lu­di­crous. When MPs asked her about high staff turnover since her ap­point­ment, the queen of poor stan­dards had this to say: “If peo­ple re­sign be­cause they can­not main­tain the stan­dard … then we will have to con­tinue get­ting the proper peo­ple.”
