JOHANNESBURG - The leader of the Democratic Alliance (DA) John Steenhuizen said the leaders of the African National Congress (ANC) are not working hard enough to end the energy crisis.

Steenhuizen said there is no difference between President Cyril Ramaphosa, Jacob Zuma and the Minister of Finance Enoch Gondongwana. He added that all of them promised that loadshedding would end soon, but the country is still dealing with blackouts, reported TimesLIVE.

Steenhuizen urged South Africans to join the DA's upcoming march to the ruling party's headquarters at Luthuli House in protest of the ANC-engineered electricity crisis.

"Through its corrupt system of cadre deployment the ANC centralised power in Luthuli House. That is why the DA is taking our fight against load-shedding directly to the source of this crisis: the ANC."

“In the next 12-18 months we will be able to say load-shedding is a thing of the past. That is the target.
