United in misery

29 April 2016, 09:22  - Bonnie.Parker

RECENTLY I was fortunate enough to have some of my letters, regarding a problem with Eskom, published in the media.

However, having read the front page of The Witness on Monday (April 25), I was shocked out of my boots, and ashamed all over again. My complaints, compared to the problems affecting people of Ashburton, pale into insignificance.

To live with high electricity costs that exceed one’s salary, is hugely problematic, but can be negotiated.

Living without electricity can lead to a life of crime, resulting in possible injuries, and untimely deaths.

But to live without water! Unthinkable! Unimaginable! Inhuman!

This is a whole community of human beings, not a herd of cattle that could survive with buckets and drums of water, of which not even this had been delivered to these people.

To both municipalities concerned, shame on you.

I’ll bet my bottom dollar the problem I have with Eskom, i.e antique zoning regarding the geography of Cramond (in this case electricity), is the very same problem Ashburton is experiencing with water, which ultimately prohibits development.

Strength to the people of Ashburton.

Hillary Clinton Trumped Donald

Apart from being entertaining, the man lacks Presidential poise and diplomacy, and his utterances (I can't say they qualified as arguments, as they were mostly narcissistic, untrue and not factual). Read more...
