I don’t imagine Heads of Government would ever be able to say I’m not an economist therefore I can’t take decisions on matters of the economy I’m not a soldier I can’t take decisions on matters of defence I’m not an educationist so I can’t take decisions about education.
More Thabo Mbeki quotes :

If you sit in a position where decisions that you take would have a serious effect on people, you can't ignore a lot of experience around the world which says this drug has these negative effects.Thabo Mbeki
As a consequence of the victories we have registered during our first ten years of freedom, we have laid a firm foundation for the new advances we must and will make during the next decade.Thabo Mbeki
