The most expensive ‘poor’ country

2019-08-06 06:01

I wonder who the government is trying to fool? Last month the price of petrol came down, but electricity prices went sky high. The price came down just to get the attention away from the high electricity prices. Now, it’s a new month and, guess what, the price of petrol is going up. Mark my word, it’s going to go up every month for the rest of the year.

One of these days we will get junk status because of Eskom. The more money Eskom gets, the more it “needs” and we, the consumers, must just pay. It’s a rip-off. South Africa is by far the most expensive “poor” country in the world.
