  1. argue on the basis of these KULULA.COM – CASE STUDY A while back, Kulula.com (an SA based airline) was reportedly fined R900K for defiling governments labour laws. Their offence was their lack of identification with AA / EEA. It was essentially alleged that because ‘blacks can’t swim’, they could not hire them. This statement raised serious debates in all quarters – black and pale. Com Air, operator of Kulula.com lines had since said the claims were ‘blatantly false and defamatory.’ Xolani Gwala, a news anchor and radio presenter with SAFM called for discussions on this on 19 November 2007. Some callers felt Xolani was too quick in asking for public opinion on an issue that was supposedly being processed by the relevant authorities. Others felt it was high time issues such as these were brought to public notice. A a claim?? was it too quick for Xolani to rush to a discussion? Iwu, CG

  2. particular caller in fact asked if anything was wrong with having to refuse employment on the basis that someone did not posses the right qualifications. This particular submission brought about serious venomous contributions. One caller particularly asked ‘if a company refuses to hire me because I am unable to drive, shouldn’t it be a responsibility of theirs to see that I am able to drive? But the critical issue given Xolani’s presentation was should we not begin to consider certain qualifications (AA, EEO, requisite [ability] unnecessary in SA’s new dispensation? Given this background, dilate upon this among yourselves. Direct your thoughts to: Should Kulula not hire only those they consider qualified to work for them? should a firm hire those who do not qualify? what of training costs? shouldn't refusal to employ/hire be based on opt'l reqts? Iwu, CG

  3. Should the inability to swim be seriously considered as a factor in the case of an airline hiring policy? Is Kulula’s action an indication of an outright racial discrimination? Against the background of LR Act (1995), should companies ignore requisite credentials just because they have to conform to governments laws? How serious is the ability to swim a major consideration in the airline industry? Iwu, CG
