The ANC has been in power (with or without Eskom power)for 28 years and under Nelson Mandela, the party did a good job.
At the time, we could certainlyunderstand the rationale behind Affirmative Action and Black Economic Empowerment (BEE).
But after Madiba’s departure, the ANC came up with a new set of BEE rules, so complex that no one understands them to this day.
It was these set of new BEE rules that led to responsibility shedding, which in turn caused load shedding. Yes, there is no power!
Eskom has just announced that its power stations are not capable of meeting the demands of the country, and that load shedding will be with us for the next two to five years.
Why is this happening?
We are told that our power stations are on their last legs. Other alleged problems are diesel shortages, sub-standard coal mixed with iron and rocks, syndicates and sabotage.
But the truth of the matter is, Eskom was taken over by blacks who operated on a policy of only employing comrades.
White people left Eskom with their knowledge of how to run power stations. So the job of generating electricity was left to a bunch of clueless ANC deployees, who didn’t know anything about running Eskom.
Now blacks are in power and we have serious electricity problems. ) Bushy Green Kagiso
