- Mzansi is far from impressed with Eskom, many of them have taken time to express their dissatisfaction with the power company
Eskom recently headed to its official Twitter page to announce that certain parts of the country will be facing stage 2 load-shedding starting this evening. According to their tweet, the load-shedding is part of an effort on their part to replenish emergency generation reserves.
"#POWERALERT1. Stage 2 load shedding will be implemented from 22:00 tonight until 05:00 in the morning in order to replenish emergency generation reserves," wrote the power utility company in the tweet.
Mzansi folks, who are not new to load shedding or complaining about Eskom, once again headed to the comment section to share their criticism with the company that has successfully managed to plunge the country into darkness on a number of occasions.
Read a few of their comments below:
"Here we go again."
"#RamaphosaMustFall #RamaphosaHatesBlackPeople.Voetsek Ramaphosa and Pravin with your load load shedding."
"You must surprise us at times, o re shaye ka stage 8 loadshedding nje out of the blue without any warning, wa e bona!"
"Mxm, there you go again. You people must be removed from there seriously."
"We as residents of Black Townships, in particular, Savannah Park and St Wendolins are so used to load shedding, we always have it even unannounced we experience it like today from 02h00 to 04h30am, for us announcing it is like a baby cry, it doesn't scare us it's our daily bread"
Briefly.co.za also reported that the Auditor-General of South Africa(AGSA) recently released a report for the 2019/20 financial year. The report revealed that Eskom's wasteful expenditure increased from R538 million to R2.9 billion.
A portion of that whopping amount was spent on building a block of flats. The flats were meant to be for the technicians who were going to work at Kusile Power Station when it was still being built. However, the station construction was concluded before the flats were built.
However, the station construction was concluded before the flats were built. The flats have reportedly been abandoned and deemed impaired. AGSA business executive Polani Sokombela told the sitting that the real mystery was how the construction cost amounted to R840 million.
