Eskom saboteurs are the empty suits that are running SA - Sikonathi Mantshantsha
Daily Maverick journalist Sikonathi Mantshantsha says Cabinet ministers are the true Eskom saboteurs.
The state-owned power utility struggled to keep the lights on for more than a week, implementing varying stages of load shedding - including an unprecedented stage 6 on Monday.
While officials look to point the finger at old equipment, wet coal and even sabotage, Mantshantsha says government leadership is truly to blame.
