The rumours of the coming of three days of darkness seems to be true Is this part of the ANC biggest hits list? Does it come with a tune? ANC can't even keep our lights on. Why is SA basically the only country with loadshedding? BECAUSE OF USELESS ANC CORRUPTION & MISMANAGEMENT ancMustGo So we must do lockdown on loadshedding? NoElectricityNoLockdown
And you believe them? After that we will have 6 days of stage 2 and 9 days of stage 3 Last year they forecasted 0 days loadshedding. So this years gonna be one helluva ride “Only 3 days of load shedding “ - are we expected to be grateful to Eskom that it is not going to be 7 days a week. And they have been allowed to charge us more for shitty service. Oh well it is the times that we live in now.
Rubbish .... What three days are those !? 🙄 Add R2 billion a day damage to the economy apart from Covid-19. Mara for what Eskom is such an attention seeker Joke of the year... Only 3 days of level one, there after level 8 every day I'm in Diepkloof we've been in a five hour load shedding for you three weeks now. CAN ESKOM PPL STOP LYING IT MAKES MORE MORONIC.
