Eskom's confirms sabotage at Tutuka

Wonder how many people work there? Can't be that many who have intricate knowledge of the security system...
It could be employees or contractors who are allowed in. But it is also my understanding that their security isn't very good at the power stations.

You are overestimating the security systems, there's generally not much security going on, mostly because reliance has always been on the goodwill of the employees not to sabotage the place and the infrastructure that puts bread on their table.

Looks like they have jacked up security alot though (https://mybroadband.co.za/news/ener...yees-arrested-and-20-suspended-at-tutuka.html)

“It [Eskom] has increased both overt and covert security at its power stations,” the power utility said.

“These include an additional 400 security personnel across the facilities, additional measures such as employing drone and infrared technology and bringing in canines to boost security at some of the power stations.”

Also wouldn't all the power plants be considered National Key Points?
 
They need to repurpose all their useless employees as security guards.
 
Maybe invest in some CCTV cameras?
This is great solution but with the way our country seems to go. Here is a high possibility of what will happen.
Tender is placed.
Company applies and miraculously auto accepted.
R150M is paid to company for work to be done. In installments.
1 Year later. And inquiry about progress.
Money gone
No cameras installed.
Company does not exist any more
Owner is missing.
There goes our tax money.

From what I understand the sabotage is done by the contractors who are working in the plant. So the contractor gets someone to break something so that the contractor can then come in and charge Eskom to fix it.

Like a fireman setting fires.
