Amidst many promises and assurances before the general election, the lies have triumphed again, as Eskom seems to be getting more money from the government.
Stubborn reports indicate that an Eskom delegation has visited the ANC’s president, Cyril Ramaphosa, and some of his cabinet members, and talks have been held in Genadendal.
Unconfirmed reports state that Ramaphosa has over-emphasized the importance of Eskom for the umpteenth time, as if alternative solutions do not exist.
Eskom has already splurged billions of rand, a large part of which “has landed in the sewer ditch”, and with the unprecedented and unfair tariff increases approved, it remains inexplicable to taxpayers why the government is again willing to put money into Eskom’s bottomless pit.
Although amounts are not mentioned, the ANC precedent confirmed that further assistance to the power provider was in principle approved.
