Government need to learn from water protests

Mercifully, the new water charges are settled.

The government made two major mistakes from the beginning. They didn’t adhere to the seven P’s when starting something new…Proper Planning and Preparation Prevents Piss Poor Performance. The second mistake is something I learned from my father when I was five years old…KISS which stands for Keep It Simple Son.

I hope the leadership has learned from this that, people can not be taken for granted. So to celebrate the new water cap rate, take a bath followed by a shower, flush the toilet, wash the dishes, brush your teeth and wash your car. Tomorrow start conserving. it’s good for our future .
