- Briefly took a look at the messages and some of the reactions the post generated
South Africans are fed-up with load-shedding and one social media user wanted to try and help resolve the problem.
A man, Kyle De Nazare, posted a hilarious screenshot on Facebook on Wednesday. De Nazare allegedly decided to text Eskom Hld SOC Ltd and ended up posting their exchange on the social media platform.
"Did you guys try putting the coal in rice?" he started off the messages, referring to Eskom's claim that wet coal was the culprit behind the load-shedding.
The person allegedly texting on behalf of the power utility said they were looking for volunteers and asked if De Nazare was available to help - and things just got hilarious from there on.
De Nazare volunteered his services but asked if Eskom had enough money for rice, seeing as there's not even funds for an "afdak".
"No. Please bring your own rice" - was the reply De Nazare got, to which he responded: "Well next thing you're gonna say I must bring my own coal."
