“He has on numerous occasions described himself as being an activist bureaucrat and tried to instil this ethos within the National Department of Social Development since 2006. His participation in government, in our experience, was not about serving power but using positions of power and authority to serve people. This is not easy in apex organisations where people access positions of power through political networks and lobbying and not necessarily through the skills they have or the required values to serve for the greater good.”
