    Default We have reached a new low.

    Last night in our neighbourhood (parts of Centurion) thugs dressed in municipal overalls drove around and opened most of the fire hydrants and closed the water mains supply taps in the surrounding areas.
    One incident was captured on cctv and posted on the community forum.

    Everyone reports the water outage and wait for municipality to respond.
    Our local councillor reports that the striking workers are threatening the standby workers with death, so they refuse to assist us.
    Has the world gone totally mad?

    We had a pipe leak and no water in Waverley from Thursday morning. Friday the muni union got their demands. Our water was fixed today. Name:  ZomboMeme%2025072020082709.jpeg

    Same story here as well. Parts of Pta-East is without power since last night. Probably also sabotage. Striking workers are intimidating the support teams.

    Power may or may not be restored tomorrow or Monday or the day after.

    The best revenge is staying. I have too much here and love this place too much to leave anyway.

    We just have to learn to look after ourselves.

    I agree wholeheartedly!!! I had the opportunity to jump last year November. I decided not the hell. I will make a difference. I will stay and fight

    I know there are a lot of my fellow countrymen of a different race who feel the same. Who are tired of what is going on. Who will stand and fight with me in the end.

    Unfortunately, it's only once SA have failed completely can we really start defending ourselves...

    Sounds illogical, but think about it...

    I think you are reading the sentence too literally.
