- Minister Tito Mboweni received a lot of flak after he complained about load-shedding
- He had taken to Twitter to say that the loss of electricity stopped him and his team from working on the budget speech
- This did not go down well with social media users who blame the ANC for the problem
The load-shedding schedules are not always accurate and as such, people can be caught off-guard thanks to the lack of planning by Eskom.
Finance Minister Tito Mboweni and his team were working on the budget speech when they were left without power.
As he loves to do, the minister shared the experience on social media, complaining about it on Twitter.
This was not met with sympathy, but rather sarcasm, apathy and resentment. Peeps did not want to hear a member of the ANC complaining about a problem they caused.
Check out what South Africans had to say:
Don't complain to us. Tell your ally Gordhan to stop it in the name of selling the SOEs.
Talk about the axe complaining about deforestation.
Load shedding is not some freak accident; your comrades @MYANC looted it to the ground. Acknowledge that! In future please say: load shedding, we did this.
What a joke! You & the ANC have yourself to blame as the root cause of load shedding! Load shedding is the result of “kickbacks”/corruption & it kicks where it hurts most! Continue enriching them ANC friends with taxpayers' money meant for Eskom & the dig continues to 6-feet...
Sir, at least you have the taxpayer sponsoring you. Please spare a thought for small and medium businesses who are SUFFERING massive losses due to load-shedding as a result of your party's looting, and who does not have the taxpayer or anyone else to help financially. Thank you.
Lol! @MYANC people are from outer space, they cause mess and complain about the mess they have caused like the rest of the public. #Absurd
If there are people who deserve load-shedding, it's y'all ANC people in power, it's all bcos of y'all!
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za reported that South Africans will be spared load-shedding, but only for one night.
