Water department appointments under fire

The South African government continue to cosy up to Havana. This time appointing 24 Cuban engeneers to provide support on water projects locally. eNCA's reporter Barry Baitman has more. #eNCA

The Cubans have once again came to South Africa's rescue, but this time they have not been welcomed with open arms.

The water and sanitation department says that this is part of a skills transfer program going back decades and will cost taxpayers about R16 million.

South Africa's are asking the question why the appointment of these 24 engeneers where as we have unemployed engeneers at home soil.

Similar angar was expressed when last year doctors were brought in to support the covid response. While we have skilled workers who are willing and able to do the work in South Africa.

Where as we are supposed to look internally before outsourcing. The south African institution for civil engeneers have adopted a more measured approach saying these engeneers is not a major secondment. eNCA's reporter Barry Baitman filed this report Courtesy #Dstv403 #eNCA
