NUM threatens lack of support for the ANC at the polls, if it unbundles Eskom

The union’s leadership held a briefing in the Johannesburg CBD on Thursday.

The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) is threatening a lack of support at the polls if the African National Congress (ANC) forges ahead with plans to unbundle Eskom.

The NUM said it found out that the state-owned power utility will be split into three entities during President Cyril Ramaphosa’s State of The Nation Address (Sona) last week and claims the organisation was not consulted in the decision-making process.

The union’s leadership held a briefing in the Johannesburg CBD on Thursday.

NUM President Joseph Montisetse says members of the union are unhappy.

The ANC has just taken a decision to go to Parliament to announce that they are going to unbundle. Our doors are open,. we are the majority union at Eskom, they see it no value to come to us and say what can we do, we are in a cul-de-sac, sit around the table and share views on how to navigate the problem.

Joseph Montisetse, President - NUM

Our members on the ground, especially in Mpumalanga are very angry.

Joseph Montisetse, President - NUM

There is no way that this kind of business model can actually rescue Eskom from the deepest crisis that it is. The deepest crisis of Eskom from our analysis is that it does not have an effective board.

Joseph Montisetse, President - NUM
