Lockington's Everyday Fiji ... Life Goes On
Allen Lockington is a self-employed customs agent and business consultant who has regular articles published in www.connectme.com.fj/news/opinion. I thank Allen and Connect for permission to reprint some of them in this political blog. They remind us that life goes on, whatever the political situation. And it's good to know that.
Learn to Live with It
The Water Authority will make radio announcements as soon as there is a water cut. I was gonna say, so will FEA when there is an unplanned power failure, but, Ill leave it at that! It is a fact that water cuts will be with us for a while, everybody needs to know and understand this. And store water. We in Waiyavi live out of buckets and bottles of water. There are times even when the water Is on, we use water from bottles and containers instead of the tap, because we have become used to it. We have learned to live with it. We live our lives around the water cut. It seldom affects us. From recent happenings we should understand that not all is well with the water infrastructure. And some things are beyond the Water Authorities control. Power blackouts are not a rare thing. These are two things that can occur anytime.
