Stop "crucifying" Patricia de Lille
Politically "crucifying" her is a way of diverting public attention from the real issues at hand.
No, the drought is not a one-woman problem, for sure. She has tried very hard and she has been literally knocking on people's doors daily for months to tell them to revise their water habits.
Don't let the political parties off the hook and hold national government accountable for a crisis of these proportions. Don't make Patricia De Lille the "fall-guy" for all of them.
This is not the "thanks" she is entitled to for all of her years of serving South Africans. It is actually disgraceful.
It is so blatant, the scapegoating of an individual, the public "tarring and feathering," such predictable human behaviour. Very disheartening!
