Government is concerned that sabotage within Eskom may have been the reason for load shedding.

Government is concerned that sabotage was the reason load shedding needed to be implemented last week, and this is seen a threat to national security, says Tiso Blackstar associate editor Ranjeni Munusamy.

She says state security and police have been brought in to protect Eskom's key facilities in a battle to keep the lights on.

On the face of it, there is no evidence that there is something untoward but there is certainly suspicion and the suspicion is sufficient enough to ensure that security is beefed up and that police and state security are brought in to this multifaceted plan to tackle the Eskom crisis.

Ranjeni Munusamy, Associate editor - Tiso Blackstar

Eskom has been a cash cow for the state capture network, that is undoubted. The problem it faces is that there is still resistance to change at Eskom because the remnants of state capture are still prevalent. They are still in the system and they don't know what these people are capable of.

The problem is they do have influence and they continue to show that they do have powerful networks.
