Call for Skills in the Public Service

Large sections of government are ineffective or dysfunctional, academics argues

Some academics believe large sections of the government that are institutionally ineffective or dysfunctional are the result of what they call ‘value-driven system’ of government.

Professor Karl von Holdt, an academic from the University of the Witwatersrand and a commissioner on the National Planning Commission, states that many South Africans’ lives remain largely untouched by the dismantling of apartheid.

Von Holdt further says that many South Africans feel that they have not experienced any visible improvements in their day-to-day lives, adding that this has led to protests by communities.
