    Its bizarre that a union representing 30,000 workers (maximum) can hold hostage an elected government, and a company that provides electricity to 50 million people. Just my humble opinion...

    Somebody is lying: https://www.fin24.com/Economy/Eskom/...-hold-20180313

    But in a statement on Tuesday morning the energy department said that while the court had not granted an interdict, the department decided to voluntarily postpone the signing "in the spirit of constitutionalism and the rule of law".

    “As a result the signing will proceed on a date to be announced immediately after March 27 2018. The reports in the media that an interdict was granted are therefore not true.”

    According to the Department of Energy’s statement, it was only given an hour’s notice on Monday evening when Numsa and Transform RSA approached the court with their joint urgent draft interdict.

    Contracts have been signed.

    https://www.iol.co.za/news/south-afr...racts-14243782

    Energy Minister Jeff Radebe on Wednesday signed the hotly-contested renewable energy agreements with 27 independent power producers on behalf of state-owed power utility Eskom.**

    Radebe said the 27 projects, located in mainly rural parts of South Africa, represented a total of R56 billion of investment and about 2 300MW of generation capacity to be added to the grid over the next five years.
    Don't argue with idiots. They will drag you down to their level then beat you with experience!!
