"This country is a joke. The government is a joke, and the power supply is a joke. It’s a frigging circus.”

Oranian suggested:

“The solution is to vote the ANC out, and citizens must arm themselves to defend their lives and properties with private security. To have hope in this government is a waste of time.”

Bonheur remarked:

“The sad part about all this is that it can be stopped. The government doesn’t want to act. It’s bizarre how someone can be proud of the president of a country whose murder rates undermine those of active warzones.”
