It’s all load shedding and e-tolls this week, yet again.
If we are not waiting for the power to come back on, we are listening to news reports about massive collusion and price-fixing involved in the freeway upgrades which resulted in e-tolls.
Fortunately, South Africans can find comedic reprieve from the gloomy news by simply tuning into Parliament TV.
This week’s highlight: Cope MP Willie Madisha mocking ANC MP Naledi Pandor’s English accent. He was then indirectly accused of being drunk by Defence Minister Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula. Watch below.
