So much for the "Strike Averted" two days ago:

Today I was at the Centurion branch of home affairs and was one of many who were denied access by security guards, ostensibly because of "workers" who were "toyi-toying" outside. So I guess that my ID and passport will have to wait a few weeks... Africa time :-)

Interesting that not one news channel covered the story. I guess that reporting on non-delivery by organs of state is akin to reporting on farm attacks -- simply too embarrassing and thus avoided, otherwise you don't get a press card to the next zupta function.
