A 7-day Acumen Media Report by Tonya Khoury. Guess what I’m composing about nowadays? There is only a person big tale and it is a ruse of a tale. A story with twists and turns and gangsters and manipulation and thuggery and failure and degeneration and darkness. So a great deal darkness. It’s the story of #WorkingInTheDark, the tale of #Eskoming.
I believe I talk for the full nation when I say Ample! Cease #Eskoming about. We see you we are not silly. You set us on #Phase6 and here in my area town our energy is off extra than it is on. We stay on a home with a massive generator, so for the most portion we have energy but this 7 days you cut out telecommunications. That’s when fact bites difficult. Working in the dim is far greater than not performing in the dim it’s not like dancing in the dark. #Eskoming
Let us analyse this nonsense mainly because it is nonsense, it is a revenue-creating racket. Eskom wants us to pay 32% extra for zero electricity. I really do not make this things up, Eskom does. It is so contrived it’s not even worthy of a #Telenovela. They flip the lights off and then say “give us more Randallas”. They disconnect locations with ‘prepaid meters’ underneath the pretence that individuals quite places have unlawful connections. Here, at my location, they’ve moved us to a totally various region for ability a region that is more than an hour absent. We used to be related to a city 10kms away so why did they move us? Turns out we fork out our electric power and the other town does not so now we are on “’load reduction’.
Who will come up with these #eskoming conditions? I mean what is load reduction? Do you take a relaxation whilst you are carrying the load or do you just make your load lighter? But there is no need to have to worry individuals because the President flew household and is “deliberating” the disaster and, according to Uncle #Gwede, 3 new IPPs are completely ready to go. They call them IPPs. Impartial Energy Producers. They need to drop the ‘independent’ bit due to the fact mainly Patrice #Motsepe, Cupcake’s brother in law, is about to make a shedload of income. It’s just a game folks and we are being played yet again! As if to verify my place, #Ramaphosa told Biden that we know we are Africa’s major contributor to the local climate improve thingy, and he would close crops ahead of routine. So which is what is occurring, early closure devoid of a backup. Are you bored to tears yet? Remain with me mainly because I have a approach, it is a excellent a person. #TakeBackEskom
Fifteen a long time ago #Eskom was rated the most financially rewarding and useful facility in the earth. Today it is a bottomless hungry defunct gorge. In 2015 #Ramaphosa said that inside 18 months, and I estimate, “We will fail to remember that power was an problem in this country”. Liar! Mantashe tells us that neither he nor his family members steal. Just google him, go on, variety in ‘Mantashe AND fraud’ and you will discover so several internet pages of tales ranging from condition seize to mine meddling to … and how his nepotism gobbled up sections of this nation. But Ramaphosa is “still deliberating”. You will not believe that me but some persons are contacting for an inquiry – are you kidding, did you skip the #EskomEnquiry where Lynne Brown, Anoj Singh, Brian Molefe and Koko all danced on the warm seat as they were grilled by a fee. #Mbeki remembers, he remembers well as he drove household harsh words and phrases at the previous routine ie. Zuma and cadres.
Remember how we took to the streets to inform Zuma to waai? Worked didn’t it? Here’s the program we wander into Eskom with a bunch of intelligent folks (citizens – not politicians – and no private sector #WhatWhat), then go absolutely everyone off their desks, off the crops and sub-stations. We convey in some wonderful recruiters and make everybody reapply for their employment. In the interim we take the engineers amongst us, the pretty really clever smart men and women who know about #Eskoming, and we place them guiding a desk and allow the coal start going. First prevent on the agenda #PutSouthAfricansFirst, (not that xenophobic drivel you’ve been sprouting by manipulating politicians). I’m chatting about our own methods for our individual state. We get electricity (electric power, if you will) initial.
Mozambique is a mere hour from me, it has no loadshedding. Guess who supplies them? Go on I’ll wait… us, South Africans. We supply a #WholeMozambique and their electric power is just good. When I say fine, they’ve never ever read of load shedding. Unlike South Africa who are in this article #eskoming. I checked out the dialogue on our smart Acumen technological innovation and there are more than half a million special mentions of “load shedding” above the past seven days. The track record stats stink with damaging 80%. The complete of South Africa hates Eskom and around three quarters of a million posts pointed out our rage.
I digress, back again to the program: We just take our useful resource very first, then what is left we promote if we are in a position to. We put a bunch of intelligent accountants. (I know two good types if you need them.) We function out cashflow and we “run the numbers” like boardroom model, not #ganGanStyle. We really don’t care how substantially we owe Mother Russia. We, the citizens, really do not owe Russia or anybody just about anything, we want OUR Power back! That’s all we want to #TakeBackEskom.
From Megawatt park (now #WattWattPark) we will shift to the resources of energy – transformers, substations, each single set of electrical provide devices – and make sure that they are shielded. No much more R35m cable theft below our noses or fantastic galloping fires outside of Roodepoort sub-station. We safeguard all those areas like a boss. How? We are a nation that has worked out how to protected itself, just phone ADT or any of the fidelity guards, don’t forget John and Robbie – provide them far too. Then wait for the RET terrorists. They’ll soon transfer on. Quit #Eskoming about and #TakeBackEskom.
Positive, in the beninging we will have zero power, nada, but give us times, basically a handful of times, and #MySouthAfrica will set on the Electrical power exhibit of a life time. Who claimed #NotInMyName in the course of the #Insurrection? We did #MySouthAfrica.
We are contacting on civil culture, that indicates you Dr Imtiaz Sooliman and Reward of the Givers, that suggests you Wayne Duvenage and OUTA, that suggests you Shan Balton and the Kathrada Foundation… appear one particular, arrive all. Get the job done out a job crew and let us just wander in and consider around. There are 50 million of us, why in the identify of Eskom are we continue to eskoming about? Give us three months and we will give it back again to you awful individuals but on OUR Terms. We want KPI conferences generally!
You should South Africa just take care of your corner. Seize a shovel and get to function. We just will need to be led. With proper brains for appropriate jobs. No much more income feeding on gluttonous established of political pigs. The truth of the matter is that this nation, like the relaxation of Africa, is minted. Minted! Everybody of you burglars back again off it is our convert. There are 50 million of us and we are a lot more than ready to operate to maintain our human rights and lights.
This endeavor staff can be applied yet again and once again. Next prevent they can go cope with the terrifying #WaterCrisis. Same modus operandi. Wonderful crew of specialists, fantastic HR and a set of willing workers. #TakeBackOurWater. Then to #Prasa upcoming, #TakeBackOurTrains. Apart from the fact that the result of possessing no rails indicates more vans. And more signifies a lot more road fatalities. While the RET are blowing up railway traces, a truck driver killed nineteen young children. Please can we #TakeBackSouthAfrica?
There is plenty of other news if you have the electric power to #ScratchTheSurface with me. Fascination rates went up by 75 foundation factors, that indicates debt just acquired extra highly-priced. There was #SowetoPride and #Sarafina turns 30. Word on the avenue is that #LindiweSisulu is tipped to be Deputy President (you can groan, I did a Marge Simpson groan too.) Prepared for more? Most likely not but whoops here it is: #ZweliMkhize and #PaulMashatile are completely ready to get eThekwini. Was not Mkhize advised to phase aside mainly because of that stolen money?
Heritage Day is coming up. Mpofu hasn’t been paid due to the fact March and argued that the presiding officer must be recused from the General public Protector listening to, because, um very well mainly Mpofu doesn’t like him. Zuma is nevertheless owning a battle with Downer and now getting private legal motion. #Steinheist is the collection to view on #Showmax. I love that we get justice through doccies, it helps make me pleased. Maybe finally, anyone will go to jail. Funny numbers that vacant the plates of the inadequate. #Steinheist. The ANC received hoofed out of NMB. Rumours are denied that the #ThemibsaHospital CEO was put in that posture for nefarious usually means. How sick are you to steal from the unwell?
Across the ponds, Donald Trump might be going to jail, really wait around, Donny ain’t likely nowhere, but it would make fantastic headlines. I viewed the royal funeral and could not get about the queue and how very British the entire party was. All that controversy of the Royals muted except for 1 male who named out Andrew and was dragged off by the law enforcement for his non-Britishness at a very British function. Russia sends a further 300 000 troops to Ukraine. In Europe we are arguing about the colour of #LittleMermaid. Hurricane Fiona does not treatment about Hollywood.
It’s Friday – just take a load reduction – but also #TakeBackEskom. We can do this.
