I sent a parcel to Ecuador 2 years ago. Thought it had probably been stolen before it left our shores because it was a smartphone with a docking station and a Bluetooth mouse and compact keyboard as it was 4 months with no sign of it arriving in Ecuador. The recipient eventually picked up its tracking number. It took 10 days from arriving in Ecuador to reach him. So it spent months in SA doing what? Sitting in a airmail bag for months on end.

And just recently the SAPO were adamant that anything < 1kg must be shipped by their "services".
....trying to create revenue streams, while the issue is plain inefficiency ...same as DoC brilliant idea that all smartphones and tablets need annual licenses...to help the SABC ... clearly no political will to sort out these entities...one dumb idea after another...

On the brink??? Bwahahaha it collapsed a long time ago. I ordered some special clips for an airsoft rifle two years ago. They passed through customs and went straight into a blackhole at the SAPO Cape Mail centre. Thought I would chance ordering something off Wish in January last year and boom swallowed by the SAPO blackhole again.

Don't deliver packages cause they more then likely get "lost", don't deliver mail, so if you don't do what your core function, what did you expect?
So another SOE, I mean has anything the government touched worked?
Salaries are paid on time.

Pray tell, why should they be any different from the other money sapping SOE's. :mad:

Shame, can't even spot that it was a typo and meant to be a "the"...

The other they in there are the things that get fixed, and I know you aren't calling Africans things.

MYBB & Other News Outlets: It will be easier if you rather report on what IS functional, profitable and working. This will cut down on 99.999999% of the articles you need to write.

On the brighter side of things the ANCs continous failures have resulted in the private industry to digitise much sooner.
I was amazed how well postal services worked in the UK but that efficency made business lazy and it took a pandemic for companies to decide to migrate to digital platforms, can't wait to be rid of paper statements, printed and posted applications/forms...
