F.E sorry but people like him can get away with this, it's called having friends in government. But basically he is in a job he has no idea about, the person who wants sacking is whoever put him in it in the first place.
Japanese as a written language uses three alphabets: Hiragana, Kanji and Katagana. A literate Japanese person will know about 2000 characters, academics and well read people up to 5000. So it's entirely possible that when presented with a document using esoteric techno-speak the minister in question genuinely can't read the documents he is looking at, as he may have been presented with characters entirely new to him.
Well, as this Japanese guy has never used a computer, then he was fully protected from viruses XD His method works! But I agree, most of ministers are really managers. They don't solve problems, don't create new programs, but manage their employees, so that they do it all. But what kind of job did you ask about? I'm just waiting for my resume from
to get a new job, so I read a lot of ads with different requirements.
