  26. It would great if they could switch powercuts from 4.5 hrs to 2.5hrs. I hope the infrastructure will be able handle the doubling of switching off and back on again. Although Citypower tries to stick to the 4.5hrs of powercuts, some suburbs rarely get their power back in under 4.5hrs. In those areas the power cuts go on for 8-18hrs some times. Of course this kills of business and service delivery.

  30. No sane person will be able to clarify kopdoek’s thought processes. There is nothing there to clarify. Everything is an opaque mix of communalist doctrine, rent-seeking and stupid opportunism wrapped in layers of incompetence and unaccountability.

    The Chinese solve this kind of problem with the firing squad. They do not try to clarify it.

  2. Great article Mamokgethi. Really I
    Mean this – no sarcasm at all. I do hope you read my comment and know this. I loved how practical you were and straight to the point. You avoided that divisive identity politics and refused to be a moth piece for our socialist government. You spoke for the working class, of which I am apart of and for this I say thank you. This article could be the best piece of thought I have read on MW. Keep up the good work.

  4. Most companies will vaccinate their staff at their own cost , just let business buy their own vaccines and we can get on with it , problem here is someone wants a cut !!!

  8. Spot on. The incompetence and carelessness is breathtaking.

    Once again it just proves how bad the collective model is for arriving at decisions. You would think by now that government would be asking itself how it’s possible for it to screw everything up, but no. Zero introspection.

    As for the vaccine, why aren’t we making it here in South Africa under licence instead of trying to buy doses from others. Put up our own factories?

    I suppose that would take both creativity and work, two foreign concepts all round.

  10. The sound advice and the proper solutions are in conflict with the Freedom Charter and the ANC manifesto. A weaver bird builds a well-constructed and intricate nest, while a crow builds a basic nest. With the ANC, we expect a crow to build a nest like a weaver. This is an error in our expectation, not an error in their method.

    We chose the wrong government for the wrong reasons, that is why the results are wrong.

    You will certainly have ruffled feathers. I look forward to much more of the same.

  14. What a ridiculous comment. Anyone serious in the SA property business knows all about the auction syndicates. The strong-arming of deperate sellers, the intimidation of potential buyers, hell even the complete fabrication of auctions, ie ask Wendy Appelbuam and her run-in with Auction Alliance, that was way back in 2012.

  15. Africa Pragmatist

    12 January 2021 @ 5:33 am
  16. Agree. We were dictated the hardest level lockdown at the wrong time and now, judging by the infections and deaths, this amended level 3 lockdown is still not working.

    Those from the townships, like Soweto, will tell you that there has not been any compliance, and the taxi ranks and full taxis are the main problem.

    Therefore amending level 3 a disallowing liquor off-site sales won’t change anything.

    The ANC and its corrupt command council have failed spectacularly.

    The stats bear that out, even though they are under reporting Covid-19 deaths massively.

  17. Romulus

  20. SA will explode when money for sassa and uif benefits run dry. By strangling the economy this is a real possibility because government is a business aswel and the same economic principles apply. It’s time opposition political parties starts shouting this from the rooftops. Furthermore, it is time to start planning for the people who survives this pandemic. If our economy is in ruines, more people will die in protests, malnutrition, enough/good hospitals etc than of c19. Government has to overcome one very big hurdle – it will have to trust and work with business. I can’t see this happening with uneconomicly friendly BBBEE in our midst aswel as our country’s enormous corruption challenges and cader deployment. Something will gave to give in the near future. 2021 have the possibility to be 2020’s big brother.

  22. The virus and its mutations will be here forever. Forget the virus and forget saving everybody. Deaths due to covid are not so different to normal death rates for the past few years. Sadly, in typical South African fashion the system can’t cope with a normal load and can only function at 50%, We should be building crematoriums, not closing businesses permanently.This corrupt and useless regime has a lot to answer for

  26. No modern economy can survive load-shedding. No modern economy can survive constant lockdown measures. No modern economy can survive a socialist/communist government. No economy can survive when all the SOEs and most of the municipalities are bankrupt. No economy van survive when the majority of voters have the right to extort financial support from a small minority of taxpayers.

    The struggling entrepreneurs and the remaining taxpayers are the real heroes in this country. They do not get the credit and respect they deserve.

  28. No mention of WMC from the EFF?

    I’m surprised!

    If this Government can loot State coffers and the Elite corrupt officials and comrades live in the lap of luxury at the expense of the people (dare i say the tax payer) then this entire vaccine procurement process is another “piggy bank” that they will tear into and ravage so that nothing remains..

    Not even a drop!

  30. Growth is unlikely to be forthcoming as long as South Africa continues to show disdain for the value creators. Socialist inspired, policies like BEE, NHI, universal wage, expropriation without compensation do immense harm to the economy. We need to open our borders, drop tax rates, rollback restrictive labour laws, encourage skilled immigration, remove capital controls, drop public sector salaries. We need to pursue free market policies and do it as quickly as possible. If we continue along the current path of socialism, greater misery awaits us.
