    Default A lesson to South Africa too

    "In both countries (Sri Lanka and Malaysia) it was majoritarian politics that became instrumental in the hands of successive governments to introduce and implement policies deliberately targeted to benefit the ethnic majority at the expense of minorities.

    "Factionalism and money politics introduced corruption, which spread like cancer into government administration, public institutions, judiciary and even private businesses, reaching its pinnacle during the prime ministership of Najib Razak.Even in the field of education quality was sacrificed for quantity and public service became the employer of last resort to unemployable Malay medium graduates. Malaysia was speeding on a road to economic disaster and social disequilibrium, aided by high level corruption, lax administration and ethnic nationalism."

    It is like reading about the current SA milieu.
    Speed is important, but not at the sacrifice of accuracy, but being accurate needs to be fast enough.
