In Khayelitsha water, which is needed simply to live, is now sold to make money. The City, under both the DA and ANC, have installed water management devices to cut peoples’ water off when the free lifeline is finished. This means no money, no water! But you need water to live! But the polictians don’t care, of you can’t pay they just end up calling you lazy. The same applies to Eskom and electricity. We have to pay for this, or we get cut-off. The result, people who can’t pay have to use paraffin to cook etc., which is dangerous and results in shack fires and death. But do the rich and politicians care? NO they don’t. All they do is use capitalism and the state to try steal from us and smash us when we complain.

Everyday the rich and politicians steal from us and take our money. They have come to own everything, while we have nothing. They have taken away land and privatised it; they have turned basic services like water, electricity, and housing into products to sell to us and make money from us. Now politicians are even selling air to companies to pollute even more – all of this madness is part of the crap system called capitalism.
