South Africans can be forgiven for taking Mbalula's claims with a grain of salt. If anything, loadshedding has worsened since 2019, and despite promises made by the ruling party, the Minister of Electricity, Dr Kgosientsho Ramokgopa, revealed that loadshedding might intensify in the future.

Netizens on social media denounced the ruling party for the claims Mbalula made, and Mbalula caught strays.
