- Eskom released its Annual Financial Results and it shows more than R19 billion in irregular expenditure since 2012
- While South Africans have become used to disappointments like this, it was still a shock to most
- South Africans used social media to voice their disgust and anger with Eskom
While Eskom is left trying to explain the vast amount of money it has been spending, tweeps took to social media to voice their opinions on the matter.
@Richards_Karin - Eskom irregular expenditure of R19.6 BILLION (and counting) plus the loss of R2.3b is close to the revenue to be raised from the VAT ↑ of R22.9b - needed to plug the Budget hole left by rampant corruption. Coincidence? I think not. Numbers tend to symmetry, particularly money.
@CoruscaKhaya - Dare we ask where the auditors were? #Eskom
@brendanel - #Eskom @CyrilRamaphosa @myanc how many small black business could have started with the money stolen. How many entrepreneurs could have made it. When last did any of you fat corrupt cats walk in the shoes of your voters?
@sufficient_love - And the poor will keep on suffering coz R200 units will equal to nothing soon #Eskom
