OMG, These okes are so dumb it is unbelievable. Haven't Eskom been going on and on about maintenance backlog, bills not paid, illegal connections etc. for the past couple months. What does that have to do with economic growth.
So what he is saying is that they achieved economic growth without the infrastructure to support it, I would call that a fail, because now you going to have an economic decline. 1 step forward, 2 steps back
They seem immune to say these things publicly and not feel embarrassed about it
