WHAT you thought about Eskom’s application for a 25.3% increase in electricity tariffs:

Rodney Janse Van Vuuren

So we have to pay 25% extra for a service they don’t provide.

Collin Keith Marion

This country is falling apart, just like the old infrastructures, never maintained now we must pay more for their mess-ups. We are going down as a nation, just now we’ll have total blackout

Terri Buhr

We are paying for a service that we don’t receive....so we are paying for, darkness. Where is the logic?

Mike Purchase

Mass action time, simple as that.

Brett Teichmann

No ways anyone can afford that. They are just promoting more illegal connections in which they get R0 for! Why must we pay for Eskom’s incompetence!

Sagryda Bristow

Time to switch over to camping techniques. They cannot charge for a service which will not be utilised. At the moment, they are stealing from the consumer, as with all the load shedding, their accounts are not decreasing. Maybe they should stop promising cooked meals to their employees and utilise their funds for the correct purposes, in order for the consumer not to suffer

Darryn Wright Rodwell

Why should we pay more when we are getting less.

Juanita Allison

Time to get off the grid! They make huge profits, pay huge bonuses and dividends to undeserving people and then they still want to keep screwing over the consumer.

Gregory Lawson

Criminals. How can you charge more for something you cannot supply?

Shaun Truter

Pay a 23% increase to still sit in the dark what a joke I tell you.

Karen Lourens

Absolutely absurd. I’d much rather spend that extra money to get off the grid, and then Eskom­ will get nothing from me. The Eskom service delivery is pathetic and now they want to increase the tariffs......for what, so that they get big performance bonuses for NON- PERFORMANCE. Go figure
