The big SA Post Office lie

The South African Post Office has developed a reputation for offering poor service to its customers.

This was shown in 2018 when a mail backlog that started in May took six months to clear.
Good job!

Could you also find out what are the repercussions for the Post Office of not meeting ICASA's license conditions?

It's not like ICASA will revoke the license and ask some private company like Postnet or Aramex to take over. :unsure:

So is ICASA toothless?

I ordered a few things off eBay October 2018 and estimated delivery was end of December 2018. Still waiting...This has been the longest I have had to wait for an order

Useless is the word that describes the post office , they should hire post net to deliver their mail and Foff home .
R25 delivery charges for international parcels and the service gets worse .

PO is just flooting like Eskom. Don't think they will ever gain any rep...

Barnes is an amazing salesperson - able to persuade govt to put him into a BEE position with no proper selection process based on a powerpoint. Unfortunately the position needs more than sales skills

Failed state so why would the post office work? Nothing the government touches stands any chance whatsoever. Keep paying your taxes and eat ****

My few pennies of worth
Mark Banes is lier and head of corrupt incompetent group of individuals who has no ethics or idea what service is...short story ordered components in May 2018, was scanned as received and sent to customs October 2018 then on PO web app show in Transit....still waiting...stolen? Lost? Question ia this so many undelivered items or lost... shouldn't we as customers consumers start making civil cases of theft against the head of this organisation Mark Barnes??? Maybe a few thousand cases of corruption and theft might wake these idiots and get something to happen We are so easy to complain lets take it further Start opening cases of theft etc Im sure as hell going to do it
