- Floyd Shivambu fired shots at President Cyril Ramaphosa on Twitter
- The EFF deputy head said Ramaphosa had no idea how resolve Eskom's woes
- Shivambu said the head of state will likely just agree with Pravin Gordhan's statement
Load-shedding has caused chaos in South Africa - citizens are fed-up with being left in the dark and politicians are using Eskom's struggles to discredit the ANC.
Floyd Shivambu has now joined the other politicians in shading President Cyril Ramaphosa - who allegedly ditched his Egypt trip to come home and handle the load-shedding dilemma.
The EFF deputy head accused the SA president of having "no clue" how to resolve the power utility's issues before claiming the country was left "leaderless".
Shivambu captioned the post:
"He’s cut his trip to Egypt short and be rest assured that if he ever speaks, he’ll start by saying: 'I’ve listened to minister Gordhan and I agree with him on the challenges and solutions to Eskom crisis', and that time they both have no clue on what is to be done. SA’s leaderless!"
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that the Public Enterprises Minister has commented on the situation at Eskom, insisting that despite Stage 6 load-shedding, the crisis remains 'manageable'.
His post generated a heated debate amongst social media users who voiced different opinions on Shivambu's statement.
Cheeky Mlungu, who goes by the Twitter handle @cheekymlungu, commented:
"Can you imagine if you okes where in power, we would already be enjoying a total country wide blackout with the only paraffin supplier being your brother."
