Why should the people have to initiate communication with the government?
The government should have been doing whatever it could from MONTHS ago, without the people having to try initiate it.
The fact that private citizens are managing to do stuff like sending 2m litres of water etc is actually damning for the government...
I don't want to play the blame game because that is counter productive. Like in any good relationship, communication is key. If proper channels are in place, things can happen much quicker, do you agree?
So if we don't know the answers to these questions, then it seems like there is a need, let me rephrase that, an opportunity for someone, or a group to step up and interface with the government. Like with anything else that needs to be brought attention to. MyBB is one platform. But why is iol and news24 not talking about the government not doing anything? Hence why I also asked, what can the government do right now?
I also had a look at http://helpendehand.co.za/ "Solidariteit". That is a start, but seems very, how should we say it, exclusive to Afrikaans speaking people? If people want help, shouldn't they reach out to more people? One way is to make the other person feel welcome by speaking in a language that they understand. That shows to me a willingness to work together as in the true sense of the meaning "Solidariteit". Or is it pride, that there is humiliation in asking for help from "other" people?
