After 22 years of democracy she feels betrayed and denied her most basic right.
She is 78 years old, stays alone, and most of all without electricity for years. This is the story of Gogo Veronica Jacobs of Alexandra, north of Johannesburg. She said for countless times she tried appealing to the powers that be to connect her to this basic service but her attempts were fruitless. Though her room is neatly wired, there is no electricity flowing into it.
