South Africa is my country. I am here to stay and here I will die too. It's my home.

Spoken like someone who hasn't done it hence my reason for doing it for my children. It is an adventure, life is far to serious not to at least have the most fun possible and experience as many news things as you can otherwise you land up being a doubting cynic.

They will be raised knowing there is so much more to the world than SA and once you live closer to Europe and the East travel becomes much easier and more affordable. That coupled with the chances of better education, thankfully they will pass a grade due to having good marks and not because the pass mark was dropped so that any lazy person could get through.

Sorry, I did come over a tad harshly in the beginning. From my experience many who leave do not quite appreciate what they have here. And yes, I've been outside of SA many times.

My kid has three passports.  I sincerely hope he will need, and want to use,  only one.

^^^thatís one of the problems many of the kids will have later on.  You can emigrate but theyíll still be South African when they want to go to University, work etc.  if they are lucky enough to have multiple citizenshipís, all is good.  Most do not

I often get criticized for putting the UK down (sorry RJ)
no issues with you or anyone putting down the UK, I just found it funny that everytime I commented on SA you found it necessary to do the same re UK.  I don't for a second think the UK is fantastic.  Wherever you choose to locate yourself in the world today is a compromise unless you're so wealthy money just doesn't feature on your list of priorities. What I do know though is that despite the world largely being a mess, as a family we have a better shot at safety, a sustainable standard of living and future outside South Africa

Ney ..not .. Iíve only been given the opportunity due to my many years of experience in operations and IT etc..
So I literally support and play a consulting/guidance role to the auditors .. also train and coach youngsters on learner-ships etc...  to be honest I donít have much interest in the generic audit papers cause they seem very meaningless and by large seem to teach ineffective( excuse the pun) framework tick box approach etc... in reality the complexity , strategy , value chains , fit for purpose solutions, benefit realization ,  etc ... all play a role and unless one have a good working knowledge of IT information systems , operations and data processing etc things like cybersec and resilience of systems will definitely not be answered by general controls ... imo ofcourse ...

I know more about how to code at the lowest assembler levels etc then you might imagine ...
See ... even in my field I donít find the very convenient phyton etc as exciting and good as good old ASM , COBOL , CICS etc ..

Long live Os390 and Vinyl ...

All hail FORTRAN 77 and Vinyl! My coding is crap nowadays (or programming as it used to be known unless you went full machine code on an early computer).  Still better than most of my third and final year students who cr@p themselves when asked to use Matlab (each time I set an assignment in that, I have to relearn it, but it is basically a scientific calculator).

No one is saying it, but the cold hard reality is: the future prospects for any white person in this country are not good..
Of any white person, really?
The most privileged have no future prospects?
So then who has future prospects?
