LISTEN | 'Research is not absolute': Ntshavheni responds to Harvard report on SA economy
Minister in the Presidency Khumbudzo Ntshavheni says research is not absolute because it considers a period or sample.
Ntshavheni was addressing the media on cabinet meeting outcomes.
“Research on its own is not absolute. It considers a period, it considers a sample, so it's not reliable — and that's why on our part we are not bothered by report in terms of things they say are happening, which are not necessarily happening.
“On things that we need to strengthen, we are strengthening,” she said.
Her statements follow a Growth Lab report at Harvard University on South Africa's economy, which suggests that phasing out cadre deployment and unbundling Eskom could help improve state capacity.
