Political promises...Consequences

1 post in this topic

Politicians make promises and in almost all cases there are but a small percentage of these promises which are economically viable.  People (mostly the uneducated poor ones) are left with expectations and it then becomes an inevitability that those people will try to fulfill the promises themselves.

Nut unlike America, South Africa have many millions of "Africans" from neighboring countries who flock here and massive informal (squatter camps) areas are erected by the communities.  One of the favourite "pastimes" is to make illegal connections to electricity.  This is an incredibly dangerous practice because some of the cables are just bare and lie ontop of the ground.


Here is a typical "engineer" who broke into a substation to make such a connection- the outcome is not all that satisfactory though!
