The Secretary-General of the ANC, and former Prime Minister of the Free State, Ace Magashule’s plan to bring Cuban engineers to South Africa to solve the Free State’s “water problems”, then wasted millions of Rand.
The so-called Cuban engineers were welcomed with a huge ceremony when they came here from Cuba for four years.
Of the 37 Cubans, who spent them as engineers, only three remain in the Free State.
Mgasjule’s impressive “Free State Cuban Technical Advisers Program, which cost taxpayers more than R84 million, then died, like so many other projects, in sudden death without the” water problem “being solved.
The eminent engineers, whose qualifications are not recognized in South Africa, also had to see that service delivery in the Free State municipalities was increased, could not make do with the ANC workers, and no positive results were achieved.
