I have heard rumours in SA that certain lifeguard jobs have been taken away from skilled experienced people and their jobs given to "friends of the local politicians".

It's called BEE, Black Economic Empowerment, If was introduced after apartheid when the new government took over. The claim was that it was to address the in balance of jobs to Black and Indians.

I had a mate there and he was a fireman one day and unemployed the next. If there was a Black that could do your job then you lost it, simple as that. Only government employees though if you worked in the private sector then you were okay but the chance of promotion or advancement diminished.

Australia and Newzeland had an influx of white South Africans, there are many whites who were the poor whites living rough now.

(Missing) kill chord in South Africa

Not using a kill chord in this kinda activities may make sense. Still risky.
Amazing to see what the vessel can survive without helm.
