Obscenity[ edit ] Watching or possessing pornographic materials is apparently legal, however distribution of such materials is strictly banned. Pornographic magazines are technically illegal, but many softcore Indian publications are available through many news vendors, who often stock them at the bottom of a stack of non-pornographic magazines, and make them available on request. Most non-Indian publications including Playboy are usually harder to find, whether softcore or hardcore.
March 9, By Pratish Mistry Comments Wonkie is certain that since South African president Jacob Zuma launchedhis Zuma hotline numberthe number has been inundated with calls. Judging by the number of protests recently about service delivery or rather its non-delivery, by government it would be interesting to see the statistics of the queries processed and resolved through the hotline.
What the government in South Africa seems to lack is ironically enough exactly what customers expect from business services such as Mr Delivery — solid service level agreements that someone can be held accountable to. Sadly these measures and those accountable for them either seem not to exist or are well hidden in the state bureaucracy.
The strategy of denial that problems exist, or acknowledging them and then doing practically nothing significant about them seems to be the only definite policy in place in government for the moment — particularly to address major public concerns such as service delivery, HIV, job creation and crime in South Africa.
It is also no surprise that there is serious violence accompanying some of the recent protests in townships near Balfour and Brits where the problem is significantly more serious. There are certainly problems in the country and if the government wants to address them, they need to approach solving them in a structured manner.
Applying the logic a management consultant would use when similar issues arise in business, government here needs to do the following — and urgently so: Identify the issues and quantify them in measurable terms as best possible.
The state then needs to work jointly with the community to put in place agreed, reasonable targets to resolve the issues in definitive time-frames. It is unreasonable for residents to expect these issues to be resolved overnight and it is equally unreasonable of government not to commit to what will be done and by when.
Communicate the targets to all the stakeholders concerned — i. Knowing when things are expected to happen with clarity will certainly help diffuse the tension and allow officials to focus on delivery.
Execute and actually deliver against the agreed plan obviously, but worth stating explicitly just in case 6. Finally, President Zuma needs to act on his threat to remove non-performers based on the delivery against the agreed targets. These are seemingly simple steps and hopefully The Presidency has a plan in place along similar lines.

The national help line that was setup soon after Aman Kachroo’s death in June has recorded more than cases of ragging in 6 years and experts believe that these numbers are only a tip of the ice berg.
