bees, honey and other sticky subjects

Some of us are obviously missing out

A contractor in South Africa was paid 32,000 Rand (nearly $5,000 or more than Euros 4,000) to remove a bee nest at a state office. An enquiry ensued once it was realised that beekeepers might have done the job for free.

The contractor (it went to tender!) doesn't seem very bright:
The contractor at the centre of controversy, Kolisa Madyibi, has refused to talk to the Daily Dispatch, saying she was “co-operating with the investigator”.

“I can't comment. I won't deal with you because this is not your matter, it's a Public Works thing. I will respond to what the paper says about me tomorrow.”
