Eskom is milking us dry while its workers are sabotaging - Sikonathi
Eskom workers have sabotaged the utility on Thursday switching off power and blockading routes to the power stations so that coal will not be delivered.
Deputy Editor at Financial Mail Sikonathi Mantshantsha says Eskom employees are in a way saying "to hell with the country" in their quest to get their wages increased.
This is all deliberate sabotage to show Eskom who is the boss...Sikonathi Mantshantsha, Deputy Editor at Financial Mail
He says when Eskom management announced the 0% wage increase they were completely unprepared for the battle.
You first stockpile the coal and then you take them on but Eskom hasn't done that.Sikonathi Mantshantsha, Deputy Editor at Financial Mail
According to Mantshantsha, even with the mess that is going on at the Eskom, they were allowed to increase what South Africans are paying for electricity.
This means you and I will be paying a lot more than we are paying now and that is not over. Eskom is taking the National Energy Regulator of SA (Nersa) to court they are complaining that the 5% they have received is not enough.Sikonathi Mantshantsha, Deputy Editor at Financial Mail
