    Default Load shedding today

    State power utility Eskom will institute stage 2 load shedding on Wednesday (16 October) due to a shortage of capacity.
    In a tweet, the embattled firm said that the outage will be implemented from 09h00 to 23h00, with a list of the affected areas set to be published shortly.
    In September, Eskom said that it did not expect load shedding in September or October.

    "Even a 0.1% rise in economic growth could result in outages, Nelisiwe Magubane, an Eskom director, told an event last month."

    Our power went out 08:59 for this

    Other "funny" thing Eskom is now since about a week ago saying it will go to court to get the extra increases it wants

    Each time Eskom wants increases load shedding starts

    An new process should come into place where each day there is load shedding one of the top management in Eskom should be fired
    If we have lots of load shedding then most of them should be fired

    Same with increases if Eskom wants additional 5% then then all the top management has to immediately get their bonuses removed

    And then each Time Eskom wants a additional increase then double the % they are asking for on the increase should be cut from their salaries
    And they should sign contract stating that
    If they don't then they should be retrenched

    Eskom will turn around quickly then

    City Power (Joburg) says no load shedding currently... I don't have a problem with that... but, my concern is that I believe they are running the gas turbines again...

    Sounds like blatant sabotage while we export power to Zim and Moz and Malawi and everybody else.

    This what you get when you push a particular skin colour through a system that requires years and years of experience, by getting rid of the those with a paler skin just because they have a pale skin. Thats their mentality, thinking just for today. Cant plan jack shyte further than a day ahead.

    As a side note, there are over 100 top management employees at Eskom that are contesting their education (degree, technical diplomas) qualifications from being vetted.

    Makes you think doesnt it.

    As ive said, we forked!!
