Depressing News and Friday Blues

It was a rather eventful week across the world – literally kneeling from one end to the other: industrial giant General Motors basically grovelling on its knees for cash; Japan wishing North Korea would be brought to its knees; Obama on one knee trying to woo Muslims in the Middle East; and the many families kneeling in prayer for the dozens of illegal miners that were killed underground at Harmony Gold’s Eland mine shift in Welkom and the tragic Air France flight crash in the Atlantic.

President Zuma also had his first formal State of the Nation address on Wednesday this week. There was really not much new in terms of rhetoric (see the Zuma Zuma Promises Promises post from last year) and it was rather light on implementation details. Still, South Africans can count themselves lucky as things are certainly not as optimistic in most other parts of the world at the moment. Wonkie expects the significant public investment in infrastructure projects will be the primary source for the aggressive target of 500,000 new jobs within the next year.
