You thought you were angry? Well, some of the top politicians in the country can match us all toe-for-toe. The unprecedented Stage 6 power cuts have sparked a national crisis, as Eskom limps through another devastating disaster. The criticism of the ANC goverment and their handling of the situation has been vitriolic

Where else could we start? The leader of the opposition had a touch of the Raging Bulls about him on Monday evening. He demanded that President Cyril Ramaphosa cancels his upcoming international trip to Egypt, recalls Parliament for an “extraordinary” session, and asks him to explain fully why Eskom is so utterly broken:

“In these extraordinary circumstances, we call for Parliament to urgently be reconvened in order for President Ramaphosa to address Parliament and the nation on this escalating crisis. The President must come clean on exactly what the structural problems at Eskom are and how his government plans to address them within the coming days.”

“In this light, the President should swiftly postpone his upcoming international trip to Egypt, scheduled for tomorrow, 10 December. There is severe trouble at home, and Ramaphosa must attend to that ahead of all other engagements. The dire situation escalates by the day – citizens and businesses are caught unaware and we have no sight of any viable solution.”
