Is this really the right person ?-
Besides her surname, what inherent understanding does Wanda have in terms of effectively marketing within a main market environment. Please do not mistaken this comment as an indictment upon Ms Swart's creditiantials, but I do believe that Corporate South Africa needs to realise that sometimes and, just sometimes, the best person for certain jobs would in fact be a person of colour.

What qualifies you to question if she is?-
Whether she is or not is firstly not up to you to decide. That decision was made by people who felt that, out of ALL the candidates interviewed, she is the best person for the job, REGARDLESS of her colour or sex. Why do we always play the colour card? Can't we just say congrats Wanda and we hope you make a good go of it? Get over the colour thing, it's not proudly black, white, coloured, asia or european - it's PROUDLY SOUTH AFRICA.
