Cost of living

Jasmine Uys, Alicedale, Athlone

Can you believe it? Another petrol price increase. The reason this time – the weak rand.

Another thing I don’t understand is why must there be levies on every single thing? And why must you pay according to the value of your property?

Many people with big houses are pensioners and worked hard through the years to get where they are today.

Now they are being punished for that.

Why can’t everybody just pay for the amount of water or electricity that they use?

Soon we will be paying a levy for the air that we breath too.
