On March 5, 2019, Dr Mbongiseni Buthelezi chatted to Eusebius McKaiser on Radio 702, about the need to depoliticise the public service, issues of cadre deployment and political legitimacy.
“We are coming from a history of bantustan administrations which were highly politicised in many ways, in service of an apartheid project.”
“We need to think about [public servants’] education, the public service and the electoral system all in the same frame.”
“How much politics is enough? How much politics is too much? That is where we need to have the debate.”
