The African National Congress regards the persistent load shedding as suspicious, claiming it suggests sabotage at Eskom.

In a statement released this morning, Zizi Kodwa acting national spokesperson, claimed that the blackouts hint at 'signs of sabotage to undermine the efforts to grow the SA economy and bring much-needed investment to create more jobs'.

It could hardly be coincidental that the implementation of load shedding had been hot on the heels of 'bold efforts' announced by President Cyril Ramaphosa during his SONA, added the spokesman.

Just three days after Ramaphosa's announcement that Eskom would be split into three entities, loadshedding had been put into effect.

According to News24, Kodwa had questioned whether the entities management was being honest concerning the extent of the crisis and the state of some power stations.

Briefly.co.za reported earlier that Minister Pravin Gordhan had held an emergency meeting yesterday, releasing a statement saying Medupi and Kusile power stations were "continuing to show a lack of reliability to contribute meaningfully to Eskom’s generating capacity, which is a serious concern".
