Post Office shames South Africa!

Can you believe this story from News24?

After many complaints from its South African customers for non-delivery of ordered items, an infuriated Amazon will no longer send items to South Africa by post. Customers will have to pay an extra R420 to have their goodies delivered by private courier.

This is as a result of unrestrained theft by South African Post Office workers.

Will South Africa never stop shaming itself? Just a few weeks ago, 66 people were murdered in xenophobic violence. The South African President, Thabo Mbeki, continues with his failed 'quiet diplomacy' towards Zimbabwe and all its human rights violations, which makes Mbeki culpable.

The thing is, the South African Post Office (SAPO) is now the only post office in Africa to be kicked off Amazon's list!

The funny thing is, the slogan of SAPO is, "We deliver, whatever it takes." It should rather be changed to, "We take whatever must be delivered!"

Shame on you, South Africa!
