HEALTH DEPARTMENT BLUES
HEALTH MEC Sicelo Gqobana comes down here guns blazing. Replace 50 experienced doctors with 15 juniors. That's a big step in the right direction.
OUR department of health is full of nepotism. The MEC can try everything, but when the rat is still around it'll never be good in hospitals.
SO our Health MEC decides to finally do his job. Someone needs to remind him a year has 365 days.
HEALTH MEC has a big month 'coz he is under fire with the hospital on the brink of closing. We need competent people running this country.
DEFINITELY a man we can work. His honesty is unprecedented. We need to encourage and assist him. Gqobana is definitely a man of good character.
IT is high time Health MEC Sicelo Gqobana sorted out his main problem, namely Sizwe Kupelo !

MINIS and stilettos: Well said ANON, not to mention the white trend, wearing fake, straight and coloured long/short hair!, amusing.
BACK TO SCHOOL
OPENING of schools still the same, 64 children in a class is a recipe for a disaster. May God strengthen our educators.
