The management and finances of our National
Library of South Africa are in such utter shambles.
Employees tell a disturbing story of neglect and abuse at one of the
prime symbols of South Africa's intellectual heritage. They tell of a
chief executive who spends every possible moment travelling the world
on freebies and proclaims that he is 'not an operational man'. They
tell of a marketing manager who does almost no marketing, and simply
disappears on an important day for his institution; of a chief
financial officer who does very little financial management.
