Eskom and The God Delusion

2014-11-05 10:48

It’s a miserable day in Johannesburg. It’s a dark morning with low clouds and a cold uncomfortable breeze that catches you off guard. It’s meant to be a bright summer’s day but God and Eskom have decided that there is no cause for celebration.  And neither offers us an explanation.

But we know they didn’t.

 Clearly our government has not taken this issue seriously and there is no indication that they intend doing so.  There is a desperate and urgent need to challenge the status quo, to focus on the power crises as we would an earthquake or a storm that is decimating the country. It is that serious. And what they would do well to realize is that whatever other issues do exist in the country, and we know what they are, they tend to look a lot worse in the dark, without a decent cup of coffee.
