EFF march against load shedding to Eskom head office
The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) will on Friday march against the privatisation of Eskom, load-shedding, and its unbundling.
The red berets are expected to gather at Innesfree Park where they will march through the streets of Grayston Drive, Rivonia Road and Witkoppen Road.
Speaking to Bongani Bingwa the party's secretary-general Marshall Dlamini says they aim to bring awareness to the situation and point out incompetence affecting the country.
It has gone beyond it being a luxury to have electricity it is a human right issue. Small businesses are suffering because of load shedding. We are saying Pravin Gordhan must be removed as he is incompetent.Marshall Dlamini, Secretary-general - EFF
The executive and the ruling party needs to be held accountable for what is happening at Eskom, he explains.
Load shedding is happening now, we cannot be held ransom of what happened in the past and not do our work, we are doing our work and holding them accountable.Marshall Dlamini, Secretary-general - EFF
