Eskom sabotage: the losers are all of us

There is no better example of the callous disregard for life that permeates actions such as these as the blocking of emergency-vehicle entrances at hospitals by nurses who demand a raise. We live in a country where the people whose calling is supposedly to save lives will knowingly allow others to die if it means a few hundred rands are added to their salaries. The difference between them and the thugs who kill someone for R50 is only one of degree.
