V!VA: Minister of loneliness & Cape Town running dry

Britain appoints a Minister of Loneliness to tackle the challenges of social isolation affecting more than 9million people in the country. According to research, around 200,000 older people have not had a conversation with a friend or relative in more than a month and up to 85% of young disabled adults - 18-34 year olds - feel lonely. Loneliness has also been described as a "hidden epidemic" affecting people across all ages at various moments in their life. Do you think its time for Malaysia to appoint our own Minister of Loneliness? Who would be your top pick and why? Share you views with us at @astroawani or with me @adillaazam. Meanwhile, Cape Town may be the first major city in the world to run out of water. A three-year drought has caused levels in its water-supplying dams to drop. Experts predicted the city will be completely dry on April 21. That's 90 days from now!
