Eskom says it is not in a position to make commitments about its ability to continue keeping the lights on.
Speaking to Ray White on the Midday report, Eskom's spokesperson Khulu Phasiwe says certain things have been switched off deliberately.
There are instances in some of our power stations where we have discovered that certain things have been switched off deliberately.— Khulu Phasiwe, Eskom spokesperson
Things are falling apart on the side but the centre is still holding.— Khulu Phasiwe, Eskom spokesperson
Trade unions National Union of Mineworkers and the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa are picketing outside Eskom stations nationwide in demand of salary increases.
The power plant says there will be no salary increases for this year.
We also have intimidations. At least one person has been hospitalised after some of his colleagues attacked him while he was preparing to leave his house.— Khulu Phasiwe, Eskom spokesperson
Essentially they attacked him at his house not even at the power station. Things are difficult, people are being intimidated.— Khulu Phasiwe, Eskom spokesperson
