Nkandla versus Knysna — 5 Comments

  1. From all the pictures, that was my deduction but it’s nice to have a first hand account, Ken. The population referred to is for the Municiplaity. Nkandla, the town within Nkandla the municipality, only has 3500 people. One of South Africa’s poorest areas.

  2. I travelled through Nkandla about 6 years ago, a tiny dorpie. I could not picture the population of Plett and Knysna there, there is minimal infrastructure.
    So I have looked at the stats, yes, the population is there, almost 50% children, children and youth make up around 75% of the population, almost all Zulu and about 80% unemployed.
    Also interesting is that Inkatha has the majority of seats.
    Nothing like Knysna, There is probably more wealth in Pezula alone than the entire Nkandla including Zuma’s pondok and the R1billion road.

  3. Until this very moment, thanks to Mike Wood, Knysna was lacking lateral thinking. We could donate Noetzie or Buffalo Bay for free holidays for anyone at ministerial level or citizens worth more than a billion:)

  4. May I suggest a solution. We should all chip in what we can to buy a lavish holiday home here in Knysna for our much loved President. Then we’d get all the things that you refer to (houses for the poor, improved roads, maybe even a by-pass). But the handing over of the holiday home would not of course excuse our Municipality of their responsibilities, nor their requirement to keep within budget. I notice from last week’s KPH that our Mayor has equipped her new office with one of the most expensive carpets on the market (the style is called ‘Serengeti’ if readers with no shortage of funding would like to order it for themselves). Perhaps she thinks she’s like the President?
