SA’s highest petrol hike to date

There’s one thing that needs no Viagra to go up in South Africa, and that is petrol. At it’s highest yet, at just under R10,00 ( around US$1,27), South Africans have to tighten their belts and discover ways of dribbling this “disaster”.

And to tell citizens to take up walking is unheard of once everything is far from everything else. It’s not like you can go around the corner for bread!¬† It’s South Africa! We need to drive around the corner for bread!

With mass media nowadays, corporations can manipulate all they want and profit more – see where I’m getting at? The government you voted for is the government that is doing everything it can to get hold of your pennies.
