Deal directly with Eskom

2015-04-30 14:25

IT is time to become realistic. The country is in a mess and wanton spending by irresponsible officials, whom are not qualified to perform their duties, has become a huge problem.

An excellent example is the R1,2 million spent on a Christmas party which clearly does not fall under the scope of what rate payers hard earned funds are to be spent on.

We all pay rates, but what is it that we are paying for? We pay for all services except for the total mismanagement of the funds which is included in our rates bill.

We have requested the qualifications of all municipal staff. Apparently most do not qualify for the standards required.

No question, BEE is the single most important factor behind this shocking mess.

It is time for all people to stand together as enough is enough.

Eskom is in financial dire straits caused by municipalities’ non-payment of funds.

It is time Eskom took over and the public dealt directly with Eskom. Eskom could charge municipalities more and the people might pay less so it is a win-win situation.

“We are facing a national disaster thanks to the ANC regime.

“The past cannot be blamed for the incalculable harm to the economy and the enormous losses in money and jobs.” - Professor Christo Viljoen ex-Eskom board and ex-Nersa member.
