But, I guess they are not an African Govt, are they?
Well I am not Italian (I do like their football team and food
and I am not British (I don't like their football team or food
) and quite frankly I am not too concerned at what happens in those countries
I am South African and I do care about my country and I won't be apologetic or a paternal racist in any way or manner
The SA Govt (Eskom) was warned well in advance instead the top brass at Eskom made the choice of rewarding themselves with a R58 million bonus and buried the reports which stated the need of new increased power supply. And now they ask the Govt for assistance, any chance the R58 million will be returned?
Cape Town has been warned that it shall experience a water shortage by 2020 and they were warned about this 15 years ago, I only hope they are preparing themselves
SA is rife with corruption and the misappropriation of funds and as long as people stick their head in the ground and try to make excuses the country has absolutely no hope.
Africa has a history, you only have to do a little traveling and one can see it
having traveled through Zim extensively across Mozambique and around Malawi .. the patterns of the landscape were there to be seen and unfortunately South Africa is showing itself to be no different
I don't do lip service
we should stop finding excuses for incompetence, African governance has failed time and again and SA is following a similar pattern, we cannot escape this. The World takes notice and prepares accordingly, I didn't have any affect on the Rand dropping or VW contemplating withdrawing from SA
The SA Govt achieve this on their own merit, what I think or say has no bearing on the country.
