Reporter is obsessed with race, not delivery

ANNA Majavu's article, DA says no to a black leader, in Sowetan of March 8 refers.

Instead of reporting the facts of the DA's provincial congress, Majavu writes about Theuns Botha being "another pale male".

Did the Sowetan report that only two weeks ago the DA elected a black leader, with an overwhelming majority in the Cape Town region, its biggest region nationally?

Not in one sentence in the article is Botha's performance as DA Western Cape leader mentioned. Instead, the entire article is about his race.

Is the Sowetan, or just Majavu, not the slightest bit interested in ability, merit, standards, experience, expertise, excellence, talent, skill or one's suitability for a position, only race? Like the ANC's service delivery, Majavu's approach is race first, delivery last.
