South Africa: DA Marches To Luthuli House Over The Power Crisis

South Africa: DA Marches To Luthuli House Over The Power Crisis

John Steenhuisen, leader of the Democratic Alliance (DA), will lead a march to Luthuli House this Wednesday against power cuts which the party says were engineered by the ruling African National Congress (ANC).

The DA party is also marching against cadre deployment, tariff hikes, and corruption.

The party says it’s time to stop the ANC’s destruction of the country’s energy infrastructure and economy, eNCA News reported. Watch the video below for more:

South Africa has been facing a power crisis in recent years, primarily due to a lack of investment in new power generation capacity and maintenance issues at existing power plants.

The state-owned utility company, Eskom, has struggled to meet the country’s growing electricity demand and has implemented rolling blackouts, known as “load shedding,” to manage the limited supply of power.

The government has been working to address the crisis by implementing a number of measures, such as investing in renewable energy and increasing the use of independent power producers, but the problem remains ongoing.

South Africa faces at least two more years of persistent blackouts as the country’s state-owned power company recently overhauled its ageing coal-fired plants.

The crisis is viewed as a political threat to the ANC ahead of the general elections scheduled for 2024.

Your relatives be they father, mother, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, niece, nephew, cousin, in-laws or grants, they fought for independence and so called democracy. The truth is there's nothing called DEMOCRACY. If democracy existed, everyone would be equal in everything including equal in age. Yes, the same birthday. Same face, same wife, same house. YES same everyone. So there is no democracy. There would be no poverty. Same number of work hours. Same salary. No boss. No landlords. No land barons. No president. No Zanu pu.

@ANCYL, South Africa is a Constitutional Democracy. Freedom of Assembly and Freedom of Speech are recognised. Toyi-Toyi is permitted and those marching to Lithuli House will have a police escort.

Very much unlike a Teapot shaped military junta led dictatorship North of the Limpopo
