Quotes

"south africa has been a pioneer in public employment programmes (peps) on a large scale such as in the environmental services, through sub-programmes like working for water, working on fire, and working for wetlands, with major positive impact on communities , people and parks and saving billion of rands over the years" said Cronin
"it's very important to put pressure on ourselves and really to try to reach the maximum amount of people through the programmes, but at the same time the danger is that you become over-fixated on the employment targets and don't pay sufficient qualitative attention to other things" Cronin said
Cronin added, "under section 25 of the bill of rights, compensation should be just and equitable but what should be taken into account amongst other things... is the current use of the property, the history of the acquisition... and the market value of the property."
