JUST recently, I watched four very young children play Monopoly in our lounge.
They knew how to roll the dice and move their individual markers. When they landed on a property they were not sure whether they should purchase the site or not and were dubious about some of the lucrative properties that would, if purchased, give them a good return for their money spent.
Two children preferred to hold on to their allocated money while the others squandered their money buying property and had to mortgage their purchases to pay for landing on another’s site.
In short, these children enjoyed playing the game but were obviously unaware of how the game should be played to win, and then suddenly I equated their knowledge to the Msunduzi Municipality running the governance of our city.
