WATCH: Maimane slams Ramaphosa's 'conflicting' messages about Eskom

2019-06-21 11:28

Speaking after President Cyril Ramaphosa's State of the Nation Address on Thursday night, DA leader Mmusi Maimane slammed the president's "conflicting" messages around Eskom.

"We must take it in context. In February, the president spoke about unbundling Eskom. In June, he talks about giving it more money. Which is it exactly?" he asked in News24's studio.

"What is more worrying, we're one of the last few countries who are not only heavily co-dependent, but we have this national grid without reform. We need deliberate reform."
