In his notice defining which scorecards are acceptable, the minister referred to “non accredited verification agencies”. We asked the dti for the definition of a non-accredited verification agency.

The dti’s answer was:
“Although a non-accredited Verification Agency is not defined but it means precisely a Verification Agency that is not accredited.” (sic)
This did not seem very useful so we asked SANAS the same question.
SANAS’ answer was: “Please refer to the definition as provided by the DTI.”
This clearly implies that there is no definition.

I wonder why the minister bothered to issue a notice using a phrase that has no definition?

And the president wonders why the pace of transformation is so slow!
