South African personality Robert Marawa took to social media to voice his concerns regarding load-shedding. Robert made some accusations regarding those in charge in his tweet and has received a large amount of support from his followers.
He made claims that those in power were "looters" and it seems that many South Africans agree with his accusations. He tweeted his opinion last night and the tweet has since gained over 7 000 likes and over 2 000 retweets.
Of the over 300 replies to his tweet many are in support but there are quite a few Saffa tweeps who are against his accusations. Robert has replied to some tweeps but left others to converse with each other.
Briefly.co.za took a look at some of the replies to Robert's tweet.
"I actually lived not far off from the Bryntirion estate where the president and some ministers live in Arcadia and in all my 7 years living there we've never been loadshed."
"Nah bra we are experiencing load-shedding because of Ramaphosa. This thing was fixed completely, Eskom even made a turn-around financially. Y'all don't want the truth."
"I spent the whole day without electricity and my sister-in-law had to leave with my wife today because she has a newborn baby. This government is taking us for a ride."
In other load-shedding news, Briefly.co.za recently reported on Eskom's announcement that the country would be moving to Stage 4. Since then the power utility announced that they would be implementing stage 3 loadshedding from 8am until 10pm today.
They cited a reduced demand and improvement of weather as the reasoning behind the move to Stage 3. They said:
"In order to replenish the emergency generation reserves, load-shedding will then continue into the weekend."
