Jill Kaganson, Green Point,
Your column “Post Office fails to deliver, again”
I am also mad as hell with the Post Office, and wish it would just be put out of its misery.
Last Christmas was my worst ever.
Usually, a couple of my Christmas cards arrive overseas, and I get only a few of the 10 sent to me.
Last year, 2019, the PO excelled itself.
Not one of my eight cards arrived in the USA or UK. And nor did I receive a single one sent to me.
And they have still not been received.
Usually, local (posted within Cape Town) arrives.
Anything that has to go through Joburg though, forget about it.
I don’t complain anymore, it falls on deaf ears.
This law seeking to prohibit Postnet from handling post under 1kg is ridiculous.
This protectionism towards the PO is a scandal.
The PO can’t do the job, so let someone who can, do it.
Why should we be denied a meaningful postal service.
One is basic to any democracy.

Please note they are not always bad.
My son lives in a remote part of Scotland… 75 miles from the nearest airport, Edinburgh.
I posted a parcel at Melkbosstrand Post Office on a Friday afternoon.
It was delivered to him on the following Tuesday morning.
Not to be sneezed at.
