The leader of the EFF, Julius Malema, says that his party believes that the recent power outage can be traced to the government’s plans to deactivate state-owned institutions. Eskom has reminded the public that the 3rd level power outage will be implemented from five o’clock tonight to ten o’clock tonight.. The same goes for tomorrow.
Malema spoke at a press conference about the results of the EFF board meeting.
“The problems with Eskom and Denel are part of the current government’s plans and methods to make state-owned companies incapable of work so that they can be handed over later to the private sector and friends of the current leadership. Eskom’s current pressure relief and crisis are being systematically created to justify Eskom’s subsequent move to the white capitalist class. SA’s energy policy and policy are directed, both domestically and globally, in the interests of capitalist interests. “
Further power outages were announced on Sunday due to continued losses in production capacity.
A spokesman for Sikhonathi Mantshantsha said: “On Monday and Tuesday evenings, both at the same time, the discharge will be carried out at level 3 and after that the discharge will be reduced to the 2nd stage for the rest of the week.”
“Eskom will continue to monitor the system closely, configure and communicate any changes that may be necessary. “Eskom is appealing to all South Africans to help limit the impact of emissions by reducing electricity consumption and switching off all unnecessary items,” Mantshantsha added.
Eskom continues to struggle with its aging centers, economists worry:
At the same time, the Alliance for Democracy (DA) has called for the state of emergency to be declared to Eskom. It says that the catastrophic situation was solution-driven when it comes to the operation of the electricity company.
The party claims that the power outage, which has cost the country billions of dollars, continues to damage the country’s economy and has contributed to the unemployment crisis.
Eskom CEO Andre De Ruyter has apologized for the power outage as South Africans continue to bear the brunt.
DA calls for the state of disaster to be declared on Eskom:
