I am baffled by why the axe hovering over Eastern Cape and Western Cape premiers Nosimo Balindlela and Ebrahim Rasool is missing Limpopo Premier Sello Moloto.
Moloto has been nothing but a ceremonial premier. One could argue that the province would have advanced faster without him or any of the incompetent leaders the province has.
After he lost the provincial chairmanship to Cassel Mathale, one hopes that the ANC will recall him to Luthuli House for redeployment.
He has done a great disservice to the province through his consistent denial of rampant corruption among some of the province's top officials.
Limpopo has been lagging behind in social and economic development and has been cited as the second poorest province after Eastern Cape.
The province has produced some of the best minds in the country but has lost them through brain drain.
The social and economic reasons for migration have been highlighted in many studies, but many people would go back to the province if equal opportunities prevailed.
But nothing has been done to lure skilled locals back.
Limpopo is earmarked for major economic investments in the near future.
How are locals being prepared to take advantage of such job opportunities in a province with an almost 30 percent unemployment rate?
