Protests break out at Eskom power stations

Tensions are rising at Eskom Holdings SOC Ltd., with the struggling South African electricity supplier confirming protests at a number of power plants following a breakdown in wage negotiations.

Groups at six coal-fired stations "have blocked roads leading to some of the power stations, which hampers the movement of people and goods into or outside of the facilities," spokesman Sikonathi Mantshantsha said in a text message on Thursday.

Just another excuse to make an inept utility look not guilty! I am so tired of this downward slide into oblivion. Guvmunt are not doing anything to netter the situation, their attitude is - I am alright Jack. :mad:
