Incompetence perfected

2018-01-18 06:01

THIS is from the Ugu District Municipality’s website:

Our district has always been and continues to remain a district of stark contrasts between those who enjoy the highest standard of living, and those who struggle to make ends meet. It is a district of colliding worlds and visions; a district which still bears the service delivery scars of the unjust and immoral system of the pre-colonial regime.”

Amazing, I didn’t realise there was any factual history about the district from pre-colonial regimes. They must be talking about Shaka and Dingaan’s time or maybe even Cetshwayo’s.

We do, however, know that service delivery during those times were non-existent. No piped water, no sewerage systems except nearby bushes.

Bugger is they, Ugu, seem to be reverting to those days. They laugh off sewage spills into lagoons, they ensure that every day somewhere in their area some people have no water in their pipes. I suppose it takes practice and experimentation to perfect incompetence, but Ugu are certainly winning.
