Eskom’s giant coal-fired Kusile power station in Mpumalanga was evacuated on Friday after a labour dispute turned violent.

Staff were instructed to leave the plant when workers employed by a sub-contractor allegedly set vehicles on fire. Police were called in to restore order.

Eskom spokesperson Khulu Phasiwe said most of the staff had to be evacuated‚ except those keeping the power station running.

“We have employees who are employed by a scaffolding company. The company is sub-contracted by Mitsubishi and Hitachi‚” he said.

It is the only thing they know. This is what the ANC taught them, cut your nose off to spite your face. Don't have schools, burn those that is there. Don't have jobs, burn the industries that do employ.
