This is the blog of Ronald Bartels that wanders on and off the subject of problem management (that is how it started), but it is best described by Ray who says this is Daddy's thoughts! Like the best music is from the Eighties and a wee dram helps in solving most inconveniences.
The root cause of the chair breaking (and a poll)
Here is the background: A chair broke during a live interview on SABC with Nhlanhla Nene. The warning crack is heard at 11 seconds, with the final collapse at 22 seconds.
* Update: The chairman is now the Minister of Finance in the ZA government.
