The Price Control Bureau (PCB) has showed signs of life. They have had a few stories in the papers and are advising citizens to lodge complaints if any businesses are profiteering during this crisis. This is good, just as the Ombudsman has encouraged us private citizens to keep our leaders accountable, so has PCB on the prices of food.

Now the ball is in our court, are we ready to break the culture of silence and fear? Are we ready to be vocal outside social media and make real impact in society? Are we ready to take the nakamal stresses to the proper authorities and affect real change? As Bob Marley said, “Only time will tell”.
