'I love my country but I hate how it is run,' says caller

Callers on The Eusebius McKaiser Show discuss various issues from Eskom, Prasa and the upcoming Sona2020.

As Eskom continues with Stage 1 rotational load shedding on Monday, businesses in the country are starting to feel the effects.

Callers on the Eusebius McKaiser Show explain how the state of the country is affecting them.

I studied in SA and got a job opportunity in London and I worked there for seven years. I came back in March 2014 because I missed home, with all of our nonsense there is no place like home. For the first time, I am saying this, I love my country but I hate how it is run. From Eskom to the drama at Prasa. My business is suffering because I can't bring stuff that I am importing on rail. They are stuck in Durban because they keep stealing the cables and the entire rail line is not running. A lot of the stores I stock my product don't have generators so the whole Eskom situation is a crisis. For the first time, I and my business partner are thinking of launching internationally.

Natasha, Caller

A lot of people around me have checked out, they don't give a hoot about what is happening in the country. Right now I'm contemplating on getting a green card so can leave the country.

John, Caller

It is actually expensive to immigrate. You will experience a knock when you sell your properties.

Brandon, Caller
