Ugu needs a contingency plan

2016-08-04 06:00

PERHAPS Ugu can impart its contingency plans to paying patrons when there is a frequent lack of water owing to drought or flood situations.

An Uvongo resident, recently discharged from more than a 10-day treatment in ICU, had no water for four days. Despite the continuous reassurance from Ugu employees of a water supply from a tanker, none visited the area. I would encourage others in this dire situation to deduct the payment of basic water charges from their account for days of no water supply.

With the lower fuel prices, the petrol price is due to decrease substantially. Warnings from the AA of insufficient petrol for motorists have been issued to motorists, attributed to strikes, a common practice in South Africa.

An ANC spokesman enlightened motorists that one is not obliged to fill one’s tank immediately. Await routine times, because of “contingency plans”. What contingency plans? Petrol supplies have already been exhausted in provinces.

President Zuma’s contingency plan is to extort votes by blackmailing the voters, threatening them that their ancestors will bring bad luck to those who fail to support the ANC.

How primitive is our nation if still resorting to ancestor worship. How can a primitive people reconcile with other eastern and western cultures?
