How the ANC government broke Eskom – 2008 versus 2018

South Africa has a history of being one of the world leaders in electricity adoption and production.

South Africa was one of the first countries in the world to use electricity on a commercial basis, and in 1882 Kimberley became the first city in the world to introduce street lights.

Another anonymous "Staff Writer" article.

Problem with SABC/ SAA / Eskom is all the same.. political interference with procurement and staffing resulting in an over staffed bloated oganization.

Fun times head when Eskom tries to retrench.. seems like it didnt work out for SABC board this weekend.

Yeah, this article can't claim everything was fine in 2008 when we were load shedding 2007 and that was only when the symptoms of the problem started to show.

Crap started the moment the ANC took over.

I remember when things appeared to be still ok at Eskom they were boasting about how transformed they were. We saw that a while later. Transformed from one of the best to one of the worst.

You can unhesitatingly depend on the the ANC to wreck everything that they have a bit of control over. They've run all the SOE's totally and utterly into the ground. The only thing that matters to them is power and feathering their own nests, and the only thing that they have proven beyond any doubt to the population, and the world in general, since taking power is that they have absolutely no clue how to develop and run a country. The ANC is long beyond a sick joke. The day that I get the hell out of this dead loss backwater country cannot come soon enough. It's not long now.
