Ramaphosa and De Ruyter's empty load-shedding promises

The South African government and Eskom's promises that by now load-shedding would be a thing of the past have not come to fruition, with rotational power cuts increasing in intensity rather than winding down.

Both Cyril Ramaphosa — then deputy president to Jacob Zuma — and Eskom CEO André de Ruyter promised that load-shedding would no longer be a reality by now.
 
One of these days we will experience a grid black out. If its not breakdowns its wet coal, if its not coal, is a fault on the Mozambique hydro plant, if its not that then its workers protests, if not this , its that.

There will always be excuses. The economy will have to bear the full brunt of this.
 
Both the gentlemen in the thread topic are not only useless, but lacks the balls to fix anything. Especially Cyril, he's the main guy in charge but what has he done in the last 7 years to sort out this shthole, absolutely nothing.

But his couch is stacked full of dollar bills. I have more respect for a common thief than I have for him.
 
When are journalists going to ask: Who within the ANC Government and Eskom benefits from continued loadhsedding?
I mean there has to be some sort of monetary benefit or planned benefit for someone over this created situation.
 
2022
Eskom has 36 200 megawatts (MW) of net generating capacity, which is primarily coal fired (32 100 MW). Eskom's network is made up of more than 300 000 km of power lines, 27 000 km of which constitute the national transmission grid.

What has the anc done since 1994 - Nothin as usual.

Why would anyone support, vote or even sponsor these criminals.
 
Is Cyril pres for 7 years already

2015,


Eskom will hire anyone who’s skilled: Ramaphosa​


...

“We have, I must admit, lost quite a number of skilled people in Eskom, and the race is now on to attract as many more skilled people as possible within Eskom. And yes, to go on merit, not to go on skin colour.

...

On load shedding, Ramaphosa said government was pursuing all feasible ways of supplying electricity.
“This includes… co-generation with the private sector and entering into contracts with independent power producers (IPPs). This process is under way and a number of negotiations are currently being held.”

...

Ramaphosa said government had recently been approached by the business sector, including labour, who wanted “to put forward a number of practical proposals” on the current electricity crisis.

Asked if an end was in sight to Eskom’s problems, he responded: “Is there light at end of tunnel? Yes, there is.”

You are welcome to see what is reported 7 years later, especially on hiring skilled personnel.

Clearly. Why else would ANC cadre after ANC cadre, who gets tasked with "fixing Eskom" not only fail in achieving anything positive, but end up making loadshedding worse?
 
I dont know. Would they both have been right if there wasnt criminals sabotaging things?
I mean crime does not go on the project plan.
Even if this is south africa.

That is by design so they can use that as an excuse later on.

They could just as easily be so incompetent that they cannot fix the issues, and corrupt to such a scale that they will steal everything that isn't bolted down today even if it destroys the looting potential of tomorrow.

They have gone backwards, and that includes adding 2 new and badly designed/implemented coal-fired plants.
