Government has failed us!

How can we, 20 years down the road, still not be producing MORE quality black players. quite simple are 2 examples. 1: soccer world cup proceeds... over R250m was supposed to have gone into 'development' AFTER 2010. the money was paid, where did it go to? government received the funds, yet no development. 2: 20 spanking new tennis courts were built next to 2 of PE's biggest townships and a massive tennis project was supposed to be run. people were hired and coaches recruited but somebody forgot that it is an on-going project and that money had to be budgeted for every financial year thereafter for salaries, running costs etc. the project failed in month 1...take athletics SA (ASA), well where do we start there with the fraud and mismanagement. google ASA and look at how many corruption stories come-up under that old dodger leonard chuene. look at archery and shooting where SA used to excel at the commonwealth games. they are no longer recognised as official sports by the dumb minister as they have no developmental program. the programs stopped right after they were told that the two sports are no longer allowed to be school sports and that no kids under 18 are allowed to be involved...WTF, how can they bring new people into the sport if they are banned from doing so? there goes a further 4 medals. bottom line, it would take me 10 minutes to draw-up a plan for GOVERNMENT to start a training plan...
