Dejá vu

Growing up in Zimbabwe, I didn’t quite understand what was happening to the country when prices started going up. No one really noticed, it started off with a few cents here, a dollar there, you know. Nothing to really cry foul about.

Then all of a sudden, we started getting power outages. Loadshedding was very difficult, a lot of us couldn’t afford generators so we had to make fires whenever we wanted to eat something warm. When the drought kicked in, water rationing began; we soon learned what a blessing rain is.

As people in South Africa oppress each other and burn paintings. Build mansions and produce guns…

The prices start to creep up and animals die of thirst.
