There are many causes out there such as relief for refugees, ending world hunger or saving the Rhino, but none feel as important or as pressing as stopping PepsiCo from killing a true part of South African heritage, "Simba Chips' Tomato flavour chips." Nothing hits home like a lekker hotdog bun filled with them chips and a cheeky squeeze of mayo. Imagine a family braai and the only variety you have chip-wise is steak and chops flavour of cream cheese and chives, sad face. Have we not suffered enough over the past few years? Is it not enough that we have to live with the constant fear of another covid, loadshedding or some idiot ref making the wrong call in our final game against the lions. We just watched Wayde fall out before the final and now you drop this bomb on us.
Through the years, South Africans have proved resilient and unified in times such as these. Times where big brother tries to take from the little man while he is weak. But not today! Today we stand and say, "Los my blêrrie tjips".
