INFANTS LEAVE BEITBRIDGE HOSPITAL WITHOUT A BATH - A PREPAID WATER METER SAGA !

Newly born babes and their mothers at Beitbridge's district hospital reportedly had to be discharged without a bath after ZINWA recently disconnected fresh water to the last town before the Zimbabwe/South Africa border. At  4 hours of age hospitals gives infants a bath which is important for removing unwanted soil such as blood and a baby's earliest feces called meconium. But for the little ones born recently in Beitbridge a bath like this never happened because there was no water in town.  ZINWA argues that the Beitbridge Town Council had to pay first in order to be supplied water according to the new prepaid water meter system. But Beitbridge said it needed time to first prepare for the prepaid system to which ZINWA said it was too late because it had given the council sufficient time to do so and it would proceed with water disconnection. A prepaid water meter is a water measuring and recording device that require residents to pay first in order for it to allow the supply of fresh water.

TRUMP' S AMERICA - REAL ESTATE PRESIDENT FACES SKY ROCKETING HOUSE PRICES

President Donald Trump
With the election of its real estate mogul president the USA opened 2017 with sky rocketing house prices that are obviously beyond the reach of ordinary Americans.  New in office President Donald Trump begun receiving criticism recently for hosting Japanese premier Shinzo Abe at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida. Reports have it that Mar-a-Lago has already doubled its prices and fees for example what is known as the initiation rate that is charged on new members by the golf industry is now $200 000.00 hence the western media has called Mr Trump, Marketer In Chief. The American president's golf business empire uses his surname as its brand so its possible that he might have made economic gains through hosting the Japanese leader.
