Re Stage 4 laodshedding - we have now become the laughing stock of colleagues in other African countries. No leadership whatsoever in this crisis. I think teh Ukraine Govt has kept electricity supplies and other essential services on whilst their country in being bombed/invaded.
@tea - yeah. I went shopping today and I see PNP/Checkers staff are not wearing masks but Woolies are. 75% of people are not wearing masks but I wore one. TBH I might keep on wearing one in shops my sinus issues went way in the last two years. Otherwise no pro or anti mask BS was present so all good. Perhaps the future lies in what Asia Pacific countries do: they expect you to wear to a mask if you have a cold in crowds.
