All my life long I put my country before anything else. and that includes rugby played by the Springboks. After completion of the RWC's in 1995, 2007 and 2019 I cried out of ride and everything else.
But what happened to the beloved country? Beauty does make our life worth living - but what happened to the people of SA is a tragedy beyond belief, It was bad before - with load-shedding and poor service delivery, but 2020 was a disaster and 2021 looks bad already. The currency was depleted because of bribery and corruption on the highest levels gf Government.
Due to Covid 19 we became prisoners in our own homes in 2020. Prices went through the ceiling and even in the Superspar and Pick and Pay there were at times empty shelves,
Will 2021 be any better? I do not think so. The people who left SA when they had the opportunity to do so did themselves and their children a massive favor. Those who thought that SA would always be the land of milk and honey are now suffering and 2021 is going to be continuing and things will inevitably get worse, We are b ack to the cloister system at home - we cannot visit our friends and family - load-shedding is back with a vengeance. I am getting to the stage where I think living is not worth it anymore,
