SOUTH AFRICA– THE  ANC PIRATE’s REALM DOWN SOUTH

 

 

SOUTH AFRICA is living under the Eskom curse once again…as it has been for the past 25 years. Why the Eskom management (and ANC fat cats for that matter) has as yet not been strung up  and whipped publicly with a flagrum –  is still a mystery. Why we do not see these thugs  chained inside steel  gibbets – hanging from lampposts along our main routes or locked in head blocks  for all to see-  is another. TEN ANC appointed CEO’s in TEN years…..and still the ANC and Eskom are “struggling” to get the utility operating smoothly like THREE  white men – John Maree, Jan Smit and Allen Morgan– did for 23 years! Truly amazing. We shall NOT ask as to why? I believe you already have guessed the answer to that question yourselves. The poor miserable ANC seems to be back again on the “struggle” road – this time  “struggling “ not for – but now BECAUSE  of the “piepol. ” Liberating the cadres  appears to be a very busy venture for the mob- especially liberating them from their incompetence and looting culture

The South African public at large is most negligent- naive- or very forgetful in this regard that these incompetent thieves as yet have not being hung. For too long the useless ANC have been hiding their total incompetence under the “apartheid” and “race” carpet. .They exploited the sympathy of their international liberal benefactors- and got away with it for too long. But not anymore. Their little game is up. Even liberals it seems- sometimes have a check with reality and realized their much revered ” liberation” bozos are just what they are…BOZOSand corrupt ones by that as well.  It is only the poor media bum brushes in South Africa that still have not made contact with planet reality yet. We doubt if they ever will. These criminal looters and con artists long ago should have been severely punished for their contemporary intimidation, oppression and down right thuggery of the populace. They simply keep on raping the wallets of the people- whether stealing their taxes, looting their money through tender fraud- or simply by escalating service fees to such an extend that the normal man on the street can no longer afford to even save a dime for his old age. SIX rand out of every ten rand you owe get summarily robbed by these political and corporate thieves. And if the populace refuse too budge to their demands for  the exuberant price hikes in  service fees  – they simply start their intimidation tactics , additional “admin” fees , humongous escalations of rates and taxes – and threats like Eskom and most city councils  again are  doing now. But steal the tsotsis  must steal!

 

Speaking of Eskom: This never ending financial whirlpool is effectively being utilized by the corrupt regime’s  capital highwaymen to secretively drain the coffers of the state at a staggering rate. Together with all the specially created SOE’s- Eskom is used for one of the biggest money laundering schemes in the history of South Africa. Everything this ANC thieves touch either ends up non-functional- or in their pockets. Sometimes like Eskom-  BOTH. The public constantly is bombarded with false propaganda that the SOE’s are in” dire straights ”  and need more government “bail outs”- because they say- it is an essential service that cannot be allowed to stop functioning. Now remember- when these ally-cats talk about “bail-outs”– they talk 6 and 8 digit figures. Blames are shifted to various fictional “reasons” and “excuses” why this or that SOE again- for the umpteen time– have to be “bailed out.” The whole aim of this misinformation campaign is to mind-f*ck the public into really believing that the SOE’s have constant financial problems and really are important sectors of the economy that cannot be allowed to cease to exist. This is typical communist propaganda- a mix of half-truths and half lies. The truth is yes these organs needs to be kept alive. But the bullsh*t is : WHO is running the shows- and at what cost to the tax payer?  Tell enough times the same lie repeatedly over and over – and it slowly becomes the “truth.” The poor naive public later-on cares less what the hell is going on between this bunch of money vacuum cleaners- and that is precisely what these skulduggers  want- the public is by now  used to this permanent woos and ” bail outs”– and their wallets ready for the BIG time plucking extravaganza.

So Jabu Mabuza who’s both CEO and chairman of Eskom owns a company which has a multi-billion contract with Eskom. Mabuza’s company didn’t do maintenance on Eskom boilers and that’s the reason we’re on load shedding.The quietness of this country is sickening

 

IN most cases this SOE’s are directly administrated by the ANC Polatriat and their appointed henchmen. This now has been going on for 25 years- and NO visible change in the status quo of these ever demanding and failing SOE’s was noticeable irrespective of all the “plans”, investigations and “promises.” And there also will be no future change irrespective the bullsh*t Ramaphosa and his shrewd band of gangsters are trying to sock to the public and the world. The reason is that the communist regime is exploiting this SOE’s to suck the tax payer dry from every dime he possess. Behind each and every one of these SOE’s there is the vultures- the so-called “supply line”“buddy” corporations  stacked with ANC/Communist freeloaders that digs deep into the state coffers – sometimes with exuberantly inflated price tags. The tax payer’s money thus are exploited  to continuously feed the SOE whirlpool – and the “Brotherhood”  crocodiles on the other end of the pools are the only ones receiving a healthy meal. It is as simple as that. 

This week South Africa again was exposed to the destructive Eskom Gargoyle factory. Eskom again started their by now usual intimidation tactics of “load shedding”– iow black outs.” Now suddenly a simple conveyor belt broke at the non-functioning Medupi power station. ONE conveyor belt broke- and the WHOLE country pays the price. Ironic isn’t it how stupid these Eskom mobsters recon the public really must be?  Eskom has blamed Wednesday’s severe power constraints in South Africa, which triggered stage 2 load shedding, on a broken coal conveyor belt at Medupi power station. In addition, allegedly five electricity generating units are unavailable due to “boiler tube leaks. ” The utility also blamed outages on delays in the return to service of units that were on planned maintenance, and said it is struggling with limited diesel supply. In a statement on Wednesday, Eskom said a conveyor belt supplying Medupi power station in Limpopo with coal failed on Saturday. This cut the station’s power output by half. Since Saturday, the utility has used pumped storage and open cycle gas turbines “extensively” to make up for the electricity shortfall. But now dam and diesel levels are running low.

Ai heff no weds….THAT ILLITERATE DUMBFUCK is running EKSDOM???

THIS is the kind of intelligence running South Africa into the ground!

So – according to this bunch of crap they try to sock the public again- when Medupi experience problems  with ONE conveyor belt and 5 generating units – it affects the rest of the generating plants such as Koeberg, Arnot, Camden, Duvha, Grootvlei, Hendriena,Kelvin,Kendal,Komati,Kriel,Kusile,Lethabo,Majuba, etc, etc from generating power?  Does this bunch of mobsters really think ALL South Africans are that stupid?

 

 

But the REAL reason for Eskom’s little tantrum again has got nothing to do with a broken conveyor belt- but rather because the greedy pigs are sour because the  National energy regulator of South Africa (Nersa) has approved only a 13.87% average price increase which will be implemented on 1 April 2019 for Eskom direct customers and a 15.63% average price increase for municipalities which will be implemented on 1 July 2019.  Eskom has stated it is “entitled to a 90% increase”.  Eskom’s reported average revenue per kilowatt-hour (expressed as its average cost of electricity) has grown from 14.98 cents per kWh in 2002 to 90.01 cents per kWh in 2019 — an increase of more than 500%. Did you copy that?  Now the Eskom spoiled brat retaliates with “load shedding” as a “punishment” because NERSA did not give him his little toy he wanted. “An injury to me is an injury to the country.”  Strange that every-time this  curse they call Eskom does not get their way- suddenly all kinds of “ break-downs” occur that force them to start “load shedding.” And when NERSA approves- WHAM– suddenly all the breakdowns that was responsible for the “load shedding” were “repaired” and the country can sigh a sigh of relief until the next time  the little spoiled brat wants another toy again. It all boils down to GREED!

 

Meanwhile the Mob Inc. – who also is very reluctant to whip these shrewd Eskom villains  publicly or chain them in steel cages again started to “pussy foot” around the spoiled brat’s tantrums and load shedding theatricals. “I think Moody’s and others will be happy with the announcements made,” Ramaphosa said. But the new round of load shedding almost certainly increases the risk of Moody’s downgrading South Africa to junk. Eskom’s load shedding theatricals  has a severe impact on the country’s economic outlook. More than 270 hours of load shedding contributed to South Africa’s economy shrinking by 3.2% in the first quarter of this year. While it avoided falling into a recession in the second quarter, the economy has been struggling. Moody’s is the only big ratings agency that hasn’t yet lowered South Africa’s credit rating to “junk”. It is due to announce its decision on SA’s rating in two weeks’ time.

If SA lost its investment rate grade from Moody’s as well, it will cost the country its place in the most important group of government bonds. The Citigroup’s World Government Bond Index contains only bonds that are investment grade. All the many overseas investment funds that are only allowed to invest in investment grade bonds would be forced to sell their South African government bonds.  This will drive up the cost of government debt. Eskom is not improving public confidence in that circus  or the economy with today’s announcement of electricity load shedding. The excuses of “malfunctioning boilers “and “conveyor belts “ among other matters will fall on deaf ears, especially with the massive increases in electricity tariffs thrust on the consumer over the past decade. This is  now the mob that ran up R450-billion in debt then expected taxpayers to bail it out. We cannot accept the constant overspending on new power stations and have Eskom fail to explain why they can’t keep them running,” says Heinrich Volmink, OUTA’s Executive Director on Policy. “Eskom’s slow pace of addressing the high costs of coal procurement and excessive manpower costs are a frustration to taxpayers, who have positioned Eskom as a burden that lacks the necessary expertise to keep the power on,” says Wayne Duvenage, OUTA’s CEO. Additional aspects such as 100 out of 121 executives refusing to submit themselves to security vetting by the State Security Agency merely adds fuel to the people’s frustration fire, as does the fact that Eskom is going to court to demand that electricity prices must rise even more than they already have.

This is silo 1 at Kusile power station. They have just overfilled the bunker and flooded the top floor with coal. This will cause the boilers to shut down. They cannot let the system run automatically and have to try running it manually. This is the result that will cause a shutdown. 👇👇

This is silo 1 at Kusile power station. They have just overfilled the bunker and flooded the top floor with coal.
This will cause the boilers to shut down. They cannot let the system run automatically and have to try running it manually.
This is the result that will cause a shutdown. This again underlines the fact that incompetence is one major factor why Eskom also keeps on to plough  backwards. 

 

One hundred senior officials at troubled Eskom circus are refusing to undergo security vetting processes of the State Security Agency (SSA), as government moves to clean up the corruption– and mismanagement-prone parastatal. This was revealed by SSA minister Ayanda Dlodlo and her department’s senior officials during a meeting with parliament’s Standing Committee On Public Accounts (Scopa). Dlodlo and her high-ranking spooks painted a grim picture of the SSA’s capacity to probe the trustworthiness of senior government officials and executives at state-owned firms, with the minister reporting that many were simply refusing to the subjected to the security screening. Scopa has been demanding the vetting of senior government officials involved in government procurement spending, amounting to hundreds of billions a year, or the state’s supply chain management for some time now.

The SSA’s Sipho Blose said only 21 out of 121 top Eskom executives had complied or agreed to participate in their vetting processes. Blose said in some cases the outcomes of the processes were completely disregarded by other government entities. He cited the SA Post office, which ignored the vetting results and proceeded to hire a person with a criminal record in Cape Town, who went on to allegedly rape and kill UCT student Uyinene Mrwetyana.The case in point, if I may make a point, is the issue with the post office in Cape Town. We gave an indication through screening that this particular individual had a criminal record, but our view was put aside. They then employed their own internal processes, wherein that person was employed by post office …,” said Blose. “In other instances, senior people in government don’t want to be vetted. In other areas SOE’s don’t want to be vetted.” “We are currently doing work at Eskom. We are sitting with a list of 121 senior people who need to be vetted so that we can assist government to turn things around at Eskom, to reduce the levels of corruption.”

Dlodlo said her department was sitting with a huge vetting backlog, as the spy agency did not have enough personnel to carry out the background checks, while it heavily relied on other government agencies such as the SAPS and Sars for information. She said looming overhaul of legislation and other policies governing the operations of the SSA would address these shortcomings. Mkhuleko Hlengwa, the chairperson of Scopa, said the oversight body would make Eskom executives stop undermining the SSA. “You’ve got literally 100 people at Eskom who are saying to us ‘go jump off the nearest cliff’, does this bite or is it a cosmetic exercise?,” said Hlengwa. “We will make sure that Eskom complies, there’s no two ways about it, it’s a non-negotiable.”

South Africa is sleep-walking into further periods of power cuts and darkness. Eskom has re-instituted load-shedding. A fifth of Eskom’s power stations are broken at any one time. And no new grid-connected electricity generation capacity has been procured since November 2014, despite Eskom system adequacy reports indicating that we are short of power and risks of further power outages are high. South Africa’s national integrated resource electricity plan (IRP) should have helped us avoid this situation. Its purpose is to model the optimal mix of energy resources and demand-side interventions that would guarantee a reliable, least-cost supply of electricity. Having failed to update the plan since 2011, the government this week finally approved a new IRP. Regrettably, the new electricity plan eschews its primary purpose of defining an optimal mix that could guide sensible investment decisions and instead settles on an uncomfortable compromise: it proposes a “balanced energy mix” that purports to offer opportunities and hope to different energy constituencies and interests. However, the political judgments underpinning this approach are misguided and are unlikely to achieve intended outcomes.

It is only a small minority – no-longer politically connected – who believe nuclear reactors are price-competitive in South Africa or, indeed, capable of being financed. All the planning models show nuclear power to be the most expensive option. While there is the interesting possibility of scientific and technological breakthroughs in next-generation, small, modular nuclear reactors, none are yet commercially available, let alone for export. South Africa’s own attempts at developing such a reactor – the PBMR – ended in failure after many billions of public funds went down the drain without even a prototype being built. It is clearly imprudent to include technologies that have not progressed beyond the research and development stage.

Equally puzzling is the reference to high efficiency, low emissions coal technology. These power stations offer only marginal reductions in carbon dioxide emissions at substantial extra cost. A few years back, the Department of Energy ran a competitive tender for privately funded coal independent power producers (IPPs). Even without incorporation of new low-emission technology, bid prices came in higher than renewable energy alternatives. Banks are withdrawing financing for new coal power stations and it’s doubtful these plants will ever reach financial close or commercial operation. References to new nuclear and coal in the text of the IRP are thus a mirage; a misguided political strategy that will backfire as none of these plants are likely to be built. Failure to make clear, economic choices around South Africa’s electricity future also means that the consequences of the inexorable global shift away from coal are ignored and no explicit plans or investments are being made to ease adverse impacts in affected communities, such as coal towns in Mpumalanga, or to fully harness the opportunities that come with more competitive clean energy technologies.

When the United Nations offered to finance, build and maintain a new nuclear power station in Port Elizabeth that woudbe able to supply ships with power and supply about teh whole country with power at low cost- that too was quickly dismissed and the poor excuse was that “South Africa is as yet not ready for such a venture.” It was all blatant lies as the regime cats have a deep fingers in the coal supplying chain business- and getting rid of the vintage coal generators surely would kill the goose lying the golden eggs. So Eskom – in conjunction with the fake regime – deliberately proceed to refuse to solve the problem. Finishing Kusile and Medupi also pose the same problems to the regime and their Eskom degenerates. While this two dysfunctional elephants are struggling to become productive- again the Mob supply chain must be looked at as the culprits. As long as these two elephants stay unfinished the money keep on rolling from the punch-drunk tax payer into the pockets of the “suppliers.” Eskom keeps on lying about the true reasons for the poor power supply situation- but meanwhile  still sell electricity to SEVEN African countries- Zimbabwe, Lesotho, eSwatini (formerly Swaziland), Namibia, Botswana, Mozambique and Zambia–  amid their poor excuses that” conveyor belts ” and “broken generators “ are the problem for South African black outs. Meanwhile the same government and Eskom  boasts untapped energy resources that could help reduce electricity tariffs to other countries in the SADC .But that is not where Eskom’s high treason against the public wallet stops.

Eskom produces around 34 000 MW electricity per month.

Eskom supply to the following African countries electricity:

Zimbabwe- 400 MW per month

Lesotho- 300 MW per month

Swaziland- 300 MW per month

Zambia 300 MW per month

Namibia- Namibia has a special arrangement with South Africa, through the two countries’ national power utilities, NamPower and Eskom, respectively. The agreement enables Namibia to enjoy special rates when using surplus energy from its neighbour.”  Nampower is exporting up to 200MW of electricity to South Africa,” Werner Graupe, senior manager for energy trading at NamPower, told a Sapa correspondent on Monday. Escom  concluded a five-year power sales agreement with the Namibian national power utility NamPower.

Botswana- Eskom reaffirms its position that we are ‘open for business’ and stand ready to undertake further long-term supply agreements, for up to 10 years. Eskom and Botswana Power Corporation (BPC) have signed a three-year firm power supply agreement, a move that is in line with Eskom’s plan to increase its electricity exports to South Africa’s neighbouring states.

 

Electricity rates: 

 

South Africans pay 93.8 cents per kilowatt hour (kWh) to 106.8 cents per kWh.

Zimbabweans paid 38.61 cents  per kWh. before the collapse of the country after Mugabe’s death.

Namibians  pays R1.69 per kilowatt

Lesotho residents pay R 1.37 per kilowatt

Swaziland residents pay R 1.48.00 per kilowatt

Botswana residents pay R 1.06 per kilowatt

Mozambicans pat R 2.36 per kilowatt

Zambians pat a flat rate of R 1.37 per kilowat.

R 6 BILLION….3 Days???????????

SO– all while South Africans must endure rolling black-outs Eskom is selling electricity to neighboring countries and sign agreements for up to 10 years. Any logic in that? The outlook is bleak as the problems run deeper with regard to electricity supply in South Africa. Eskom and their ANC bosses for too long have been bullying Independent companies to stay out of the market.  Linked to that the humongous corruption and theft which now resulted in a R 420 Billion debt and one wonders how on earth could reasonable South Africans ever allowed this bunch of shrewd con men to run such a vital facility?  Eskom now is plagued with all sorts of maintenance problems on the vintage 37 year old  power generators. Neglected maintenance and repair schedules for the majority of South Africa’s power stations urge Eskom to take them off the grid to repair and service. During those times no power will be fed into the grid from those stations. That can hurt the electricity supply up to 970 MW (whole load shedding stage) if one of the two units at the Nuclear Power Station in Koeberg have to go down for maintenance.

The coal supply chain is expensive, the quality partly poor as the best quality  coal is siphoned off to mainly China-  and coal supply agreements corrupted and subject to current investigation. We do not see a situation that eases up overnight. To the contrary, the looming breakdowns  will add significantly to the demand and load shedding will have serious side effects on the residents of South Africa including their health. Load shedding stages 2 – 4 will become the norm and even those with UOPS, Battery-backed PV Solar Systems and generators will soon run out of money for diesel and capacity of the quickly deteriorating batteries, while incompetent and inexperienced young Affirmative Action engineers filling BEE quotas will try to build, operate and repair South Africa’s power sources. The ANC racist policies that deny skilled white engineers and the  xenophobic pride of the ANC to deny foreign engineers the access to our problem is the therefore the ongoing second reason for the dark outlook.

Our utility, Eskom, is looted into bankruptcy   and continue to fund the black fiscal hole borders on criminal offence in term of the insolvency legislation. Splitting it into Generation, Transmission and Distribution will only yield positive effects if the least lucrative division is sold to a party, who knows the business and has the financial power to turn it around. Not selling any division will only triple overheads. The Dark Continent has its name as seen from space, with the lights of Joburg, Cape Town and Durban having been the exception for decades. Those light spots are now fading away and the major economic centers will join the stone ages and recede into the darkness of the remainder of the continent. Well done ANC, hope you stocked up on candles and batteries to be able to still count the monetary spoils from two decades of corrupt administration. We hope the power goes off , maybe some of your blind followers will then realize that you are not able to run this country and chase you to the gallows with pitchforks and lanterns as we have finally reached the status quo we had when Jan van Riebeek arrived!

WRITES Gareth Van Onselen in his latest review:

A few short thoughts about this utterly inane criticism from the ANC, rolled out whenever it has nowhere else to go, that the opposition is engaging in cheap “political point scoring” Rarely has there been a more stupid observation.  Yes, you bozos. The opposition is scoring points. Correct. Why? Because you in a business called, wait for it, politics: so, when your “political” opponent makes a “political blunder” (i.e. bankrupts the country’s electricity supply) – you point that out. Not rocket science.  On what planet does the ANC think it is operating? Planet No Politics? More like Planet Hypocrisy. Bear in mind this is a party so petty, so small minded, it will waste no time literally banning the word “rubbish” in parliament, because its fragile ego can’t tolerate truth. 


Also, there is the scale of the problem. I mean scoring points because Zuma said Africa is the biggest continent is one thing; scoring points because the ANC ran out of electricity is quite another. That latter problem is kind of hard to keep quiet about. Hard to ignore.  It’s all born of this ANC-mad idea, that everyone must “unite” behind the executive (including, so far as the ANC is concerned, portfolio committees, specifically designed to hold the executive to account – could do with some more point scoring from them). Even the opposition! 
I know it’s cliched but, really, at the heart of the ANC lies a pathological desire for abasement from all comers; for “understanding” when it palpably wrong, and “forgiveness” when it errs. Sorry guys, reasonableness is one thing, running out of electricity is quite another.  It’s just rank incompetence writ large: an organisation that was given something that (whatever your ideological position on its necessity) was more fixed than broken, and which it bombed it into smithereens with maladministration and economic illiteracy. Eskom is a wasteland.  Call that political point scoring if you wish. Whatever the rhetoric, the facts that the lights won’t turn on makes it grounded in truth; and the political reality of that is that the ANC is absolutely, 100%, responsible for the catastrophe. Case closed. Thanks for coming

After years of waffling, kicking the can down the road, hedging, and equivocating, South Africa is facing a harsh and uncompromising reality: Eskom is on the point of total collapse. In a media statement, the struggling utility said on Wednesday that “ As a result of the loss of additional generation, delays in the return to service of units that are on planned maintenance and limited diesel supply, it has become necessary to implement stage 2 rotational loadshedding… in order to protect the power system from a total collapse.” (emphasis added). Load shedding is likely to cost the economy R1bn to R5bn a day, according to Bloomberg, equal to about 0.1% of GDP. That might not sound like much, but the impact of the cascading failures at Eskom is broader than just the cost of lost production. There is also the opportunity cost – what manufacturer would want to set up operations in a country that can’t keep the lights on? It would mean building an in-house generator, sending costs through the roof.

In addition, of course, there is the looming threat of a rating downgrade. Moody’s – the last holdout on the downgrade bandwagon – is surely going to chop SA down to junk sometime soon. And that will mean international funds dumping SA bonds, which would translate into higher borrowing costs for the government. And that, in a bitter irony, would make it harder for Eskom to get the capital it needs to fix itself. A truly vicious circle. At this point, there’s really not much to say. Eskom has been in crisis for years but there has been no apparent sense of urgency at the leadership level when it comes to addressing the problems. There’s no big, complicated, secret issue – the problem is Eskom’s costs are higher than its earnings. It needs to cut costs – which probably means getting rid of a chunk of its unnecessarily large workforce and getting out of supply contracts signed by bad actors lining their own pockets with bribes. And it needs to boost revenues, which means getting paid for its services and, in the absence of payment, cutting off the power supply to indebted municipalities.

There are also capacity constraints. Eskom is in no position to invest in new capacity, so private capital will be needed – Eskom can buy and distribute the power produced by independent (and hopefully green) power producers. There’s no way around any of this. If Eskom continues to run at a loss, the government will have to pour more and more money into it by borrowing more and more. Eventually, SA will not be able to borrow any additional funds, because bond buyers will start to doubt the country’s ability to repay the loans. At that point, we’re looking at an IMF bailout which would, doubtless, impose a structural adjustment program (SAP) featuring reform at Eskom and opening up power markets. In other words, all roads lead to the same place. It’s only a question of how damaging and painful we choose to make the journey. If SA has any sense, it will choose to take its medicine on Eskom now and avoid catastrophe.

Here’s the problem. SA’s current leadership favors incremental reform and consensus-based policy making. In other words, the people in charge – including Cyril Ramaphosa – are coalition builders who strongly prefer to create win-win situations through slow, careful negotiation. In 99% of cases, this is the optimal approach to intractable political problems. Indeed, it’s the only way we were able to make a negotiated transition to democracy nearly 30 years ago. But the Eskom crisis is the 1% of cases. There’s no path to win-win. Either the whole system collapses and everyone loses, or certain powerful groups of vested interests – including labor unions and Eskom suppliers – have to take it on the chin. What we’re looking at here is a lose-lose situation, unless radical action is taken. The political calculus around Eskom is hugely complex, especially for a leadership group that is facing a persistent, low-grade revolt from elements of its own party. Internal ANC conflicts mean that no one can afford to burn bridges with trade unions.

But if those bridges aren’t burned down, and soon, there’s a real possibility of disaster. Slow, incremental change and reform works well when you have time, resources, and space to experiment. What’s happening at Eskom does not fall into this category. One can be optimistic about the broad direction of travel in SA and pessimistic about Eskom because when it comes to the high-level stuff, win-win solutions are possible and everyone can benefit from the process of changing. When it comes to Eskom, someone is going to have to accept a loss. And unless SA’s leaders take urgent, decisive, and fearless action, the losers will be all South Africans. And that includes Eskom’s workers. If the power grid collapses, their jobs will go with it.

 

 

Your sweet week-end f*cked up by Eskom:

Eskom confirmed on Friday that stage 1 load shedding would be implemented on Saturday from 9am until 11pm. The power utility had promised to work towards limiting load shedding this weekend after three days of power cuts. It’s cited ‘problems’ at the Medupi power station as reasons for the latest outages. Eskom spokesperson Dikatso Mothae said load shedding on Saturday was unavoidable and people should take precautions. “We will continue to double our efforts in terms of working around the clock to ensure that going forward, we don’t need to load shed,” Mothae said.

 

The Solution

THE solution in cleaning up this vast networks of corruption and money laundering at Eskom lies either in privatizing the utility- or the public themselves must start taking action and develop their own means of electricity generation to get off the grid. Privatization will be no option- as the regime’s own cronies in the communist unions will surely kick up one helluva ruckus around “job losses.” The regime itself will be very reluctant to privatize their own lucrative dis-functional one arm bandit. Private Independent companies (IPP’s) already offered to step in and salvage the situation- but because of the big money racketeering involved- they were summarily dismissed . Many white qualified engineers also offered to step in- offered their skills-  and solve Eskom’s troublesome fiascoes- but again because of the regime’s racist Affirmative Action policies and the racist unions- they too were thrown onto the back-burner.

So- to cap the survival kit –  it all will be on the shoulders of the public, the only victims in this diabolical saga- to remedy the loose-loose situation created by a bunch of kleptocrats in control. Among South Africans there are many bright engineering skills that quickly could develop free energy systems at a reasonable low cost. There are many free energy systems available to build- the internet is literally littered with it…simple designs that could give you all the free electricity you need. As a test we got 2 engineers  to build us a system. The system when completed gives 1.8  KWh per hour for less than R 50 000.00. That gives you 43.2 KWh per day. We were amazed with the ease and elementary way it can be constructed. We used a 3D printer to construct some of  the necessary components for us. It basically consist out of a generator, a secret wind driven propeller (which we will not reveal what we used but it’s readily available on the market)- a converter from DC to AC, deep cycle storage battery packs- starter and a switch-over mechanism from Eskom to private power. That is it. HOW we did it is our little secret- but it is no rocket science either..just a bit of inventive imagination. Just go back to the basics- we call it the KISS principle: Keep It Straight and SimpleWe ran it for a week and it worked superb!   A normal household uses an estimated 30 KWh per day.  So we had about 13 KWh per day we could restore back to the grid. We really was gobsmacked how elementary it really is. The Australian outback residents for a long time uses this type of system- and that is where we got the idea from. Why did nobody ever sat down and start designing this unit? It’s so simple.  The reason- laziness and fake propaganda  and the fact that Eskom intimidated everyone that factually have the solution- iow corporate intimidation. But carelessness, complacency and laziness from the public itself brought about this omen onto  them. There is so many ways to kick Eskom out of business.  Tesla long ago already gave the solution- but South Africans in general is a very careless lot- open to be robbed blind and taken to the cleaners by this tsotsis on a regular basis. The ball is in your court now- get your lazy arses off that chairs and start developing your own free energy systems- or face Eskom’s frustrating and intimidating  black outs. TIME TO WAKE UP BOYTJIES!!
