Eskom and their load shedding

2018-12-13 06:00

HAS Eskom devised a new set of load shedding schedules for the South Coast?

Banners Rest and Port Edward were “treated” to load shedding TWICE on December 3. First we went off from 12 pm to 2 pm, which is not that bad. But then again from 8 pm to 9 pm. Oops, did someone make a boo boo?

Phoning Customer Care is more than a waste of time. After holding on for 27 minutes — heaven help us if it was an emergency — and having to listen to some dreadful “music”, never mind a lady with a monotonous voice, I gave up.

Eskom, guess what? You claim load shedding is due to lack of coal, well I MIGHT not be able to pay my account due to load shedding, my bank account is running low.

Wake up and smell the roses.
