Eskom's early Kusile celebration could be short-lived

Eskom's celebration of improved performance at its troubled Kusile Power Plant this past week is premature, as the station still needs extensive retrofitting and repairs to offer anywhere near its full capacity, Rapport reports.

During electricity minister Kgosientsho Ramokgopa's latest update on the government's Energy Action Plan on Monday, 25 March 2024, Eskom's group executive for generation, Bheki Nxumalo, revealed that Kusile was no longer considered a "recovery" station.
 
"could"

Imagine these twats actually published factual articles.
 
"Eskom’s Kusile power plant flue gas duct failed" Yep. Can't argue with that. I'd call it a "fail".
 
We expect nothing less from Twat Twaddle and his cohort.
 
Apart from intelligence and qualifications most industries require employees with experience and aptitude. Due to history, South Africans have got rid of most of the people with industrial experience and aptitude over the last 30 yrs. The people with intelligence and qualifications have no one to mentor them and are leaving South Africa.
Aptitude, like intelligence, is a gift, not something you can be taught. Aptitude comes through hundreds of years of experience being passed on to you from the moment you are born.
We are NOT all equal. We all have different strengths and weaknesses. These strengths and weaknesses lead us in a direction where aptitude starts to take over. Aptitude gives us the instinct to route out the causes of a problem, not simply repair what has gone wrong.
This article highlights just what happens to a country when a country gets rid of experience and aptitude and replaces it with attitude.
 
Good luck further progress. The broken clock working once, has already been spun into stories in stadiums. That's all the performance the ANC needed from that power station.
 
So this weekend I drove past Kusile.

The smog all the way from Pretoria East to the power station is horrendous. Like a thig fog of pollution.
 
"could be" ?

Do they imply there is chance that it is not guaranteed that it won't be?

One of the most beautiful posts I've seen here from MyBB in a very long while. It goes to the heart of issue, more could be added, but this will be enough.
