By Zilba
I have been following families who libel a refuse dump, while the parent scavenge and look for work, or sell what they can to earn an income, this is the babysitter who looks after their young children.

Well that is pretty much how many South Africans feel at the moment.Politicians in South Africa have lied to all S.Africans but this community have been promised so much by the current government and been let down overtime, so yes, agree with you Malc.
Such a sad life for them, our lot don't realize how easy they have it. Pam
