All problems would be solved if competition to Eskom was allowed. Eskom needs to offload the deadweight on its payroll. Deadweight is all the corrupt and unqualified decision-makers.
Eskom is not in a position to spend more money on new infrastructure. There is enough power available if it was properly maintained. New plants unmaintained will just end up in the same position as our existing power plants. I mean what a joke Kusile & Medupi Power Stations are and they want to build more?!?!?!
As a monopoly, they will just keep increasing the price to consumers and squander the money raised. Eskom is just one massive cookie jar that needs to be closed/sealed. B-BBEE is just as responsible for the failure of Eskom. There are many well qualified that could do the work and probably for less.
Lose the dead weight and open up the market !

Fix the rot and allow competition. Eskom is an embarrassment to our country.

You are only as good as your strongest opposition. Eskom is still monopolizing the energy market in South Africa and costing tax payers great losses in the process. Unfair tender and procurement processes as well as corruption stifle growth. Mismanagement and unqualified senior management is also an issue. We need to privatize energy production. And I don't mean sell Eskom to multinationals or encourage foreign investment. We need to financially back and grow our own entrepreneurs. We have so many bright young talents but we smother them with red tape. Make it work or pay the price.

Yes I do
Privatisation is the way to go. Eskom is useless, government steals the funds, we are paying more then R2 per kw to almost never use it yet our consumption is higher and higher. We pay for electricity, Eskom steals is back with loadshedding and resell it.

We have to go green and allow private generation .. Eskom is unably to save itself unless it is sold to China or Russia
