Mmusi Maimane, Democratic Alliance leader, urged voters to 'Keep the lights on' by showing the ANC the door in the upcoming elections. Maimane was adamant that South Africa had a choice to make: save Eskom or lose the country.
Democratic Alliance leader and presidential hopeful, Mmusi Maimane, has effectively given South Africa an ultimatum - Save Eskom or risk losing the country.
According to TimesLIVE, Maimane is taking full advantage of the state-owned power utility's dire situation, using it to prove the ANC incompetent.
The Democratic Alliance's new election posters reiterate their leaders opinion, insinuating that a vote for the opposition party was a vote to "Keep the lights on".
After unveiling the poster outside the Eskom head office at Megawatt Park, Maimane commented that:
"The ANC thin gathered that Maimane's opinion was crystal clear - if you want the lights back on, vote out the ANC.our country, they looted."
Briefly.co.za gathered that Maimane's opinion was crystal clear- if you want the lights back on, vote out the ANC.
The Democratic Alliance has called for a national day of action on Friday, 29 March so that their qualms over load-shedding could be heard.
As for their plans for the embattled power utility, the DA wants Eskom to be split into two separate entities, and for municipalities to be afforded the option of buying electricity from independent producers.
