Wow. Thanks for the explanation Dorette. It is worse than I thought and it seems that those in charge don’t care if the economy fails. That the grid is failing and the water situation is precarious makes more sense. I can’t speak for the rest of the world, but the media in the US pays no attention to SA at all. Nelson Mandela always got coverage but now that he is gone they don’t pay attention to SA at all. I make it a point to try and be informed about what is happening in the world and given virtually no coverage anywhere else, I have learned more about what is happening in SA on this forum than from any other source.
