Continued / In Africa, their reputation is appalling.
This is the straightforward response of a simple South African, to a very carefully crafted piece of PR.
Shell cares not a jot about South Africans, with or without electricity. In the two years that we have withstood Shell, and challenged the truthfulness of their claims, they have never once said – or admitted – “Shell is here for the money”. Whether there is shale gas or not, whether it can be extracted or not – Shell will leave SA when it suits them. They are completely prepared to sell their special blend of environmental risk and damage to our government to meet their corporate objectives.
