    This is ridiculous! Strike is now the order of the day. Can we blame them when we have irresponsible government at all levels.
    The three tiers of government we have are irresponsible. They do not see any rationale to provide reliable welfare facilities that could make life worth living for masses.
    I wonder what they are doing ad leaders. This cut across all parties.
    The greed of our people has led them to exploiting all situation, seeking extra ordinary profit. You cannot sell water and be in debt, unless you are cursed. The excuse the association is putting up is not genuine. If is tax that is too much, let them talk to government. They dhould not add more to the already bad situation that masses are passing through.
