Here we go again

Despite eskom announcing last week that the power cuts were over, we're back to load shedding. Apparently a transmission line went down and koeberg decided to 'take itself off the grid' to prevent failure. Now we wait for the line to be repaired, and we're back to random power outages.

Consequently i do not have much uptime to play with, so expect the midweek cuckoo to be late again this week. Circumstances beyond my control and all that jazz.

What i would like to mention very quickly is that the official word on the mystery bolt is now sabotage. Forces consipiring to create havok at election time. Police have suspects whom they will be arresting imminently. Any day now. Yep. Definitely going to arrest someone. Soon. Any time now.

Is it strange that the first reaction to a statement like that, coming as it does on the eve of municipal elections, unaccompanied as it is by arrests or proof, is that the ruling party is trying really hard to avoid any voters thinking they may have stuffed up provision of electricity in south africa? Because it would be terrible if some ANC supporters actually got angry enough with them to notice they do a shit job of running the country. I mean, someone might actually not vote for them because they haven't kept a single promise they made for the last 12 years.

Imagine that.

Still preaching (see comment below). People may not vote, but it won't make a difference, as the disillusioned opposition to them (you) aren't voting either.
