"ENGINEERS CREATE WEALTH,ADMINISTRATORS ADMINISTER WEALTH."

June 22, 2007

I'D LIKE US TO ENGAGE IN AN INTELLECTUALLY DISCOURSE REGARDING THE DIRE SKILLS SHORTAGE OUR COUNTRY IS FACED WITH.MY MAIN INTEREST IS TO STIMULATE DEBATE THAT IS CONSTRUCTIVE,DEVOID OF RACIAL OVERTONES AS THIS HAS BECOME A TRAIT CHARACTERISING MOST OF TOPICAL ISSUES THAT OUR COUNTRY IS GRAPPLING WITH.LET'S IDENTIFY IDEAS PERGNANT WITH VIABLE SOLUTIONS IN EXPANDING THE INFRASTRUCTURAL BASE OF THE ECONOMY SO AS TO MEET THE GOALS ENVISAGED BY GOVT TO HALF OUR UNEMPLOYMENT LEVELS BY 2014.

LET'S LOOK AT OUR IMMIGRATION POLICY REGARDING RECRUITMENT OF FOREIGN SKILLS THAT ARE IN SCARCE SUPPLY.RED TAPE AND BUREAUCRACY RULE THE DAY IN THE DEPARTMENT OF HOME AFFAIRS,HENCE,WE CONTINUE TO EXPERIENCE "BRAIN SYNDROME" OF OUR EXPERTISE WITHOUT COMPLEMENTARY REPLACEMENT IN THE GAPS CREATED.WITHOUT ENOUGH ENGINEERS,WITH A SKEWED PYRAMID IN FAVOUR OF ADMINISTRATORS SUCH AS ACCOUNTANTS,ECONOMISTS,LAWYERS,ETC TO ADMINISTER OUR WEALTH,WHAT WEALTH IN THE FUTURE WOULD THEY MANAGE?,SEEING THAT WE ARE LOATHE TO PROMOTE SKILLS RECRUITMENT & DEVELOPMENT IN KEY DISCIPLINES SUCH AS ENGINEERING,ARTISANS,TECHNICIANS,ETC FOR THIS COUNTRY TO GROW.

SOUTH AFRICA ,ET'S START TALKING!!!!!!
