South Africans should have never accepted load-shedding when it started 14 years ago, Eskom spokesperson Sikonathi Mantshantsha said.
Speaking to ENCA, he said a lack of maintenance and not bringing new generation capacity online is to blame for the continued load-shedding across the country.
He further highlighted that with the existing infrastructure, there is no way load-shedding can be eliminated.
“This is why Eskom formerly asked the government in December 2019 to procure an additional 4,000MW of capacity,” he said.
