Affirmative action have become the creator of the loss of scarce skills. South Africa are losing skilled people to foreign countries due to the of lack of job opportunities. Affirmative action is not achieving its desired results; hence it is paramount that affirmative action be scrapped and people be employed on merit. 25 Years into democracy, unemployment rate in South Africa rose to 27.5 percent an all-time high and is a ticking time bomb. Service delivery is at its lowest. Affirmative action is destroying our society and are leading to the further marginalization of people. Professionals and job seekers have become disillusioned and have lost confidence in a system that was supposed to have brought great opportunities to all Blacks: IE: African, Indian, Coloureds and Women. New Legislation is urgently required to restore confidence in our society, the corporate Industries and institutions.
