As a participant in the PPS survey of professionals, I feel that the report "NHI, crime drive brain drain" was a hit and miss affair.
It hit on a few areas of concern and only touched on a few professions that feel the grass is greener in foreign lands. The article missed other important areas raised in the survey.
One question asked respondents if they felt there was scope for their children to one day pursue a similar profession in this country. I and many other professionals answered with a resounding "No".
Reason? A shrinking economy and laws that discriminate against whites securing employment and/or out-sourced contracts despite having relevant qualifications and abilities.
Respondents were asked if they felt the country would improve (crime, corruption, economy ) over the next five years. The answer was "No".
As a lecturer at a tertiary institution, I will join an expanding group of my peers and students in foreign climes within the next 18 months and shall watch, from a distance and with regret, as this country is mismanaged by the government and the shrinking middle class is taxed into Diepsloot-like desperation.
