Minister of Science and Technology, Naledi Pandor, has expressed her dismay at the recent xenophobic attacks and said that some of South Africa’s scientific achievements may not have been possible without eminent African scientists working in our universities and science councils.Science and Technology minister, Naledi Pandor, said the xenophobic attacks violates the ethos of science as a force for global good (Image: South Africa.info) Minister of Sceince and Technology Naledi PandorThe Department of Science and Technology (DST) and the entities that report to the Minister of Science and Technology, Naledi Pandor, met this morning, Tuesday, 21 April 2015, to express dismay at the recent attacks on foreign nationals residing in South Africa, and to express their support for the president’s call for an immediate end to xenophobic violence.Addressing the gathering, Minister Pandor said that science, technology and innovation in South Africa had benefited immensely from partnership with other African nations. She reminded staff that South Africa would not have won the bid to host the major portion of the world’s largest radio telescope, the Square Kilometre Array (SKA), without the support of its African partners.Apart from the obvious humanitarian concerns, the science community expressed consiternation about how the xenophobic attacks could damage South Africa’s national system of innovation, as the country’s efforts to develop human capital for research and innovation have been considerably enriched by the eminent African scientists who have taken up senior positions in South Africa’s universities and national science councils.“Without the experience and expertise of these esteemed colleagues, who also fulfil the valuable role of mentors and guides to young South Africans, science and technology in our country would be very much the poorer. Let us also not forget that during their exile from South Africa, due to the denial of access to education opportunities by the apartheid regime, many South African scientists benefited from training and education in other African states,” said the Minister.The Minister emphasised that the generation of new knowledge through research and its applications for the benefit of society was a universal pursuit, and that the scientific enterprise was by its nature international. The values of partnership and solidarity among nations were essential for sustainable and equitable global development, and all discrimination based on nationality, gender, race or religion should be rejected outright.“The outbreak of xenophobic attacks in our society violates the ethos of science as a force for global good. We are shamed by these incidents, and condemn them in the strongest possible terms,” Minister Pandor concluded.The DST will mount an enormous banner in its foyer for the employees of the Department and its entities to sign. Visitors will also be encouraged to sign the banner.For enquiries contact the department’s media liaison officer, Lunga Ngqengelele, on 012 843 6799 or 082 566 0446.

About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Chelsea midfielder Mount feared long-term injuryby Freddie Taylora month agoSend to a friendShare the loveMason Mount has revealed he feared he had suffered a long-term injury against Valencia last week.The midfielder was substituted after 15 minutes during the 1-0 loss, but returned to start against Liverpool on Sunday.”As soon as I did it I thought it was going to be a long-term injury,” Mount said.”But then I iced it and it calmed down and I realised it was not as bad as I first thought. The next day I was jogging on it a little and from then I knew there was a chance of me being involved [against Liverpool yesterday].”There is still swelling there now but it is solid and I felt good and I trained the day before. I was pretty positive the day before the game that I would be involved.”He added: “You have to block the injury out of your mind and focus on the game.”When I had that chance which I felt I should have scored I rolled my ankle a little bit and it felt fine. It was fine throughout the whole game. It was solid.”Your Champions League debut, you don’t want it to end so soon, but that is football, it happened, and I try to stay positive. “I looked forward to the Liverpool game and set a goal that hopefully I could get ready for that. I feel like I am a quick recoverer and we worked on it hard and I was able to get back.”
