“The climate change threat has been known for some time now. Landslides and floods have increased in KZN. Where is our solution to prevent loss of life?
“Sick and tired of “leaders” who pretend to care. Visiting grieving families for publicity. Why don’t you go find solutions? Make sure public money is utilized for the benefit of SA? The continuous abuse of SA is sickening. How much more should we endure?”.
