South Africa’s not on it.
Not just because we’re, like, totally inconsequential but we’re a very friendly bunch with only friends all around the world. America, Russia, India, Brazil, China we love them all. And they love us back, no? A global love fest!
And that’s why SA doesn’t sanction Russia and Russia doesn’t sanction SA. (So, ok, maybe we’re not madly in love with Ukraine but they are hating SA anyway coz of all the negros here.)
And, contrary to most of the West’s countries, SA’s govt tries to be good to its people instead of bullshitting and exploiting them.
And sometimes it shows:
And, errm, no, South Africa’s not a communist country! Quite the contrary actually. But the gas price is regulated by the govt. In order to protect the citizens from greedy oil companies. They can’t protect us from the fubared global market but they’re trying to bolster us from the most ugly price hikes as good they can. Now is 12 cent not a lot of money but it shows their good will and that they’re trying to do right by the people.
And they are doing right by your blog bishy right now. We’re supposed to be in the middle of loadshedding from 10:00 – 12:30, now it’s 11:29 and I’m blogging with full electric power! 🙂
