The Black Jewish President of South Africa, Ramaphosa has added another bunk public holiday to the list. 1st November – will be a public holiday for local elections. I don’t even want to know, nor am interested, in the junk reasons for this crap.
What I know is that this country already has too many public holidays.
Germany has only 9 public holidays that are observed throughout the country.
America only has 10.
South Africa will now have 15!
PLUS, what South Africa has, that NOBODY ELSE HAS I’M SURE … is that if a public holiday falls on a weekend, then you get the monday off. Quote: "The public holidays act act no 36 of 1994 pdf determines whenever any public holiday falls on a sunday the monday following on it shall be a public holiday."
So whereas Americans and Germans would lose at least 1 public holiday because it falls on a Sunday, so effectively they’d have 8 and 9 actual working days off, this is not the case with South Africa. We WILL have all 15 days off each year.
This is a LAZY COUNTRY with a determination NOT TO WORK!!!
