South Africans on Twitter respond to loadshedding news

Phoenix Durban

On Sunday 10 February, Eskom spokesperson Khulu Phasiwe announced that loadshedding would return due to the power system being constrained by a number of breakdowns including a depletion of water and diesel resources. The power utility then upgraded stage 2 loadshedding to stage 4 and today loadshedding stands at stage 3.
During an interview following the 32nd African Union heads of state summit on Monday, President Cyril Ramaphosa expressed his “shock” and “anger” that the national energy generator has “reached this stage of dysfunctionality”.
Here’s what some South Africans have to say:

Some workers who travel from the townships and Cape flats to Sea point for work, say they couldn’t cook last night. Electricity returned while they were sleeping. They had to wake up very early, rushing to work. #LoadShedding #Stage3 #Eskom #EskomLoadshedding

I think stage 12 of #LoadShedding is when they come to your house and blow off your candle. #Eskom

Mr. @CyrilRamaphosa says he’s SHOCKED and ANGRY about #ESKOM’s Load shedding? He appointed the Board, CEO, COO, Task Teams, continues to sign Power Purchase Agreements with IPPs, & still shocked? The correct words should be INCOMPETENT and OPPORTUNISTIC. Unbundling will be worse!

The reality is that #Eskom power failures can be placed squarely at the feet of the ANC.
The power utility has been used as a cash cow for looting by the #Guptas and political fat cats, as a result, this has left us in the dark.
