All stakeholders need to apply a bit of sanity and compromise for the sake of the nation. A lot has already been at stake and the nation can not afford this nonsense. Both government and the unions need to understand that lives are involved here and any prolonged action is unacceptable. The strikers have to stop stretching the government otherwise we will have a repeat of ZIMBABWE when the government ended up printing useless money to give to people- leading to hyperinflation. The government has to set the right precedence and enforce the law- TAKE IT OR LEAVE.
