In his letter, the councilor asked Eskom to leave the industry alone: ​​“I urge you to rethink the burden – taking in our industrial areas. Job losses are creating enormous hardship. The current situation is unsustainable. I can’t stop the daily requests for food from people who have lost their jobs. ”

Eskom’s daily load – loss announcements are in line with the course and rumors are rumored that rumors of over a hundred days of load – bearing may come true.
