Backward decay of South Africa
All aspects of life in South Africa have deteriorated from that of a developing country to that of a third world country, over the past 24 years of rule under the ANC.
What path is the once beautiful and beloved country going to take? Somewhere better, or down the drain like some other African countries or down the drain like most South African Government Departments, from 1994 to 2018?
Here below is the ugly truth of farm murders in Limpopo province only:
See this video of a tragic case of murder in South Africa, which is a daily occurrence:
Over a period of 24 years local government institutions like municipalities, have constantly failed in providing services and dismally failed in financial management and performance. Yet over this period nothing has been done by the ANC party to rectify the job requirements for municipal board members, who are supposed to act like board members in the private sector.
In 24 years of rule, the ANC could not identify and rectify the reasons for failure of service delivery by local municipalities. All that must be corrected is to impose qualification standards for councilors.
The ANC members like to boast about ESCOM performing so good that power cuts are no longer taking place, but in reality demand went down to below capacity, due to higher tariffs.
Unemployment is at the highest ever with more than 31% and a further 130 000 job losses for 2018 already by October 2018. When will the ANC ever start to improve it?
Was the ANC Indaba in Polokwane in 2007 a failure because of a wrong choice for President? One cannot expect more from someone who hasn’t seen the inside of a school!
Over the years the bail-out money wasted on the financial survival of the SA Airways could have provided houses for all shack dwellers in the country. The ANC is running more than 200 of these type of Government organisations, so, the question is: “What is the grand total of money wasted on Government controlled organisations?
Is there one single National, Provincial or Local Government Department, which out-performed its supposed goals or where no corruption took place?
Is there one single National, Provincial or Local Government Department, which is not overloaded with manpower?
Was there one single National, Provincial or Local Government Department, which strictly appointed employees on the basis of competency requirements and potential?
It seems that the ANC at one stage thought unemployment could be alleviated by creating unnecessary job titles in Government and State Owned Organisations.
In the recent Parliament debate on transformation of land ownership without compensation, most black speakers conveyed immaturity by allowing hatred toward whites to overshadow logical wisdom.
How can there ever be an ideal of a rainbow nation while the ANC is doing all it can to shoot themselves in the foot with low moral values?
When Minister Trevor Manual tried to install a Performance Management System for Government Organisations, he was ousted out of Government.
What positive outcomes were ever achieved by President Zuma? What image is conveyed when a President of a country declares that “Corruption is a strange Western thing”.
Education is for the birds – just be streetwise, like President Zuma and his inner circle cronies!
How does the ANC as a party evaluate its success over more than 24 years? Why don’t they use more competent black persons, who are available but ignored?
What is there that can make any South African citizen proud (brimming with pride)?
Why is Julius Malema employing whites?
Why is it necessary for Parliamentary enquiry commissions to replace law enforcement duties of relevant Departments?
What was the true reason for installing the automatic electronic toll gate system in Gauteng, in addition to the existing toll gates? It reminds one of the notorious arms deal in the 90’s. The electronic toll system is receiving heavy resistance due to suspicions of corruption associated with it.
The ANC party definitely performed exceptionally well in increasing poverty and unemployment. They have not used the opportunity afforded them for more than 24 years to prove to the people of the country any form of improvement.
It is only through the ANC Government where an employee can go on permanent leave with full payment for months and years on end (they call it suspension).
It is only through the ANC Government where an employee found guilty of corruption, can be rewarded for it by promotion elsewhere.
The root causes for all failures remain around insufficient knowledge and insufficient competencies.
Is the country still moving forward to 2019 under a leaderless ANC ruling party?
Do we have the Superman, who can do the necessary cleanup, fast enough?
It is actually real easy to find training manuals for improvement, that is, if one has an interest in improvement. The following two free to download examples underscore this statement:
1. Competency development guide for managers, by the United Nations:
2. Training manual on police integrity, by The Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF):

The missing financial knowledge gap in Government.
The missing financial knowledge gap in most South African Government Organisations is locked up in the five essential financial skills for business people and non-financial managers:
- Accounting principles
- Assessing financial performance
- Cash flow analysis
- Interpreting financial statements
- Reading a balance sheet
All five can be obtained free on the net. It can be downloaded individually. The images look like this:
All five can also be downloaded for free in one zip file. The image for this download will look like this:
Here is where to get all five: http://www.free-management-ebooks.com/
Again, it is very easy to get the knowledge, without any sweat, if the interest and willpower is there and not overshadowed by self-enrichment ambitions.
All about Project Management can also be obtained free of charge here:
Changing street and town names is only a waste of time and huge amounts of money. It does not contribute an inch to building a rainbow nation. The highest potential contribution to building a rainbow nation is locked up in character building and building higher moral values, all through continuous education, continuous learning and continuous upbringing principles. Upbringing principles already start from an early age before school-going age! It must start at home from parenting care and influence and not entirely left to school teachers.
If 63% of new-born black babies will never know who their fathers are, not even to speak about the high rate of rape occurrences, how can there ever be positive cultural growth?

How Governments can make capitalistic systems to fail, can be viewed here.
It has been proven time and time again that the best for a country, with a capitalistic system, is when the leader of that country has a qualification and background in Economics and not the Law. If the leader of a country does not have the preferred qualification, he/she must at least have a good ear for advice from competent Economic advisers!
The easiest way to earn a remuneration package of R 3 to R 5 million or more per year, as a totally incompetent person for the job, is to be employed in Government. It is only through the ANC, where a State-owned bank can go bankrupt through looting. Julius Malema will never learn a life lesson or an economic lesson. He should be banned to Siberia, Russia, North-Korea or even China (where they work up to 16 hours per shift, every day of the week) for a few lessons! His graduation program at the University of South Africa, was not a big help in Economics.
If Jacob Zuma is found guilty of high treason, must he then not be sentenced to die before a firing squad as of old?
In the mind’s eye of the beholder, thinking of the African National Congress, reminds one of the saying “Bloated in the glory of authority”.
In a survey of a few years ago under black University students, the results indicated that more than 90% of them would prefer to be employed in Government and not in the Private Sector. The main reason given was that they could then also participate in the “get rich schemes” of looting and stealing. What a way to go for a Country!
What happened to the Code of Conduct for Civil Servants, which existed up to the end of 1993? Flushed down the drain like everything else, from 1994 till today?
Listen to this radio interview about the 100 billion rand irregular spending since 2008 (corruption) at Escom:
500 Billion rand blown in ten years!
Just remember, there are more than 200 State-Owned Organisations like Escom.
High treason, High treason! How can any voter still vote for the ANC? Only when one is overwhelmed by ignorance and stupidity!
If a project can be looked upon as “urgent”, no tenders are necessary. All government departments, in all government levels and government owned organisations misused this loophole for self-enrichment! All this crookedness without any preventative internal financial risk control measurements; nor any worry how it is going inside the organisation one is supposed to be in charge of.
Who was the Architect of this grand theft scheme?
All Government related organisations must be investigated for fraud and corruption and not only where such rumours have surfaced.
Those culprits who participated in theft, demonstrated with those acts that they feel nothing for the millions of their jobless comrades struggling in poverty.
Escom power tariffs should be 50% of what it is now!
The big question is this: Will Zuma escape or face jail sentence?
28 farm attacks, 1 farm murder in November 2018 in South Africa

Here are the statistics: Gauteng – eight, Western Cape – five, Freestate – one, KZN – three, Limpopo – three, Mpumalanga – five, North West – four and in the Eastern Cape… Read more
See how the ANC miserably failed to live up to the promise of Nelson Mandela of “not boarding the gravy train” or “live like fat cats”:
The ANC proved they feel nothing for their brothers and sisters living in dire circumstances and poverty.

The miracle of short interval control inside our performance management system:
The miracle of short interval control in accordance with the sergeant stripes principle, is that it opens up the opportunity for self-control and self-correction of deviations, on all levels, before a job position on a particular level has to report to the next higher level. It also minimises the control function and control frequency, by each consecutive higher level manager, so that supervision and control over subordinates become almost self-regulatory.
The great challenge for organisations is to progress from occasional backward looking performance appraisals based on historic performance, to regular forward looking performance management based on continuous corrective actions at a differentiating shorter control and planning time scale for each hierarchical level (planning, controlling and reporting according to the Sergeant Stripes Principle).
The strategic plan becomes alive through continuous short interval corrective actions.
So, we can rightfully name it as “The self-propelled performance management system”.
Quote: “Encourage and empower subordinates to empower yourself!”
