So decided to install a gas geyser, it works like a charm and added to that it has brought down my electric bill by 50%. So that was one problem sorted, only to find there is a shortage of gas now and to top that up a shortage of Fuel. It could be that suppliers did not forsee the increase in demand given more people are using generators, and gas appliances, but one wonders if this is the state of things to come. If anything this shows that who ever is in charge of the big suppliers does not have the forsight to run such companies.
Edit: Just have to add that there is also an electricity shortage.
