Maybe the comrades just wanted to make sure that Cyril wasn't lying about the "sabotage" part...

South Africa is once again facing the risk of loadshedding after fire broke out at one of Eskom's largest power stations on Wednesday night.

The blaze, which was confirmed by the state-owned entity, started in the afternoon at Majuba Power Station in Mpumalanga, but was promptly extinguished.

Video clips of the plant's conveyor belt being gutted by fire circulated on social media on the evening.

That conveyor system looks pretty buckled. Got to be a good few billion involved to repair that I reckon.
Lol an entire plant should cost a few billion.
Just a conveyor belt and some structural steel is a few thousand.

How did you work that out? In addition to the structure, I see the conveyor, the take up, and drive section, and possible bits of other safety stuff on fire. That's not going to cost a few 1000s.
