"And our businesses are struggling with load-shedding and yet they have the decency to announce as if they are doing us a favour. Who said the whole country is interested in that funeral?"

"They've been saying the same thing with SONAs and ministers' deaths. So they've been making up stories about the whole load thing. Some serious investigation on tenders needs to be done at Eskom."
