PHCN cannot be trusted. In fact, some people say it is when you need them the most that they tend to disappoint you. Across the length and breadth of South Africa, the phrase “Up NEPA” is not strange. What follows next is people rushing into their houses to quickly iron their clothes, charge their phones and lamps, and even watch TV.
However, one major factor that is hard to contend with is the heat in South Africa. If you live in Johannesburg or Pretoria, you’ll agree with me. Epileptic power supply has not helped matters, but if you do have a rechargeable fan like I do, maybe that won’t be such a problem.
