Quotes

...” Modise locates the genesis of prosperity gospel in Genesis 12 verses 1 to 3: "Now the Lord had said unto Abram, ‘Get thee out thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will show thee, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shall be a blessing and I will bless them that bless thee and curse him that curse thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed."
"Government appreciates that negotiations are still ongoing. However, Government is of the view that whilst negotiations are ongoing, public servants who are neither represented in the negotiations nor eligible to unionise should not be unduly disadvantaged. Any delay in adjusting these public servants' salaries, would irreparably prejudice them because as a matter of principle agreements reached through negotiations cannot be backdated."
South Africa’s rhino kingpins are "small fish in a big pond", he believes. "The big bosses are in Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, China. They also sit in London, New York. They have sophisticated systems that will stop you before you get to them. We can’t, as SA alone, get them. The big guys are out there. Not here." - Saturday Star
"It's important that our technicians never lose sight of how medics impact the mission," Ellis said. "Speaking with the different units, with strenuous jobs, helps us understand their unique medical needs and shows the service members how seriously we take our role as healthcare providers."
