Lesufi’s placement system chaos still unresolved – IRR

Letter: Responses to race and inequality show muddled thinking - Businesslive

18 November 2019 - There is no question that most South Africans who need and deserve real help 25 years down the line are black, and it is they who will be the primary beneficiaries of any policy based on disadvantage rather than race.
