Eskom says possibility of load-shedding low

Lusanda Bill
18 December 2014

Eskom says the risk of load-shedding today and tomorrow is very low however the system is still fragile.

Earlier this week four generators collapsed which heightened the risk of load-shedding in the country, however the generators have since been brought back online.

The power utility has been struggling with power supply due to problems at its power stations and diesel shortage.

Eskom’s Acting Spokesperson Khulu Phasiwe said the power system at the moment is constrained but stable, meaning that if we have any disturbances or if we loose any of our generating units we may have to implement load-shedding.

Phasiwe said we are asking people to continue to use electricity sparingly at all times.

Suspended deapartment of Labour employee costing tax payers R2 million

Oscar Thomas
12 December 2014

The Democratic Alliance has called for disciplinary processes to be concluded as soon as possible.  This is after suspended Chief Director of Legal Services in the Department of Labour Advocate N Phasha is still earning his monthly salary, even though he has not worked since his suspension back in October 2011.

DA MP of Labour Ian Ollis said using the Department of Labour’s annual reports over the last three years, it is estimated that Advocate Phasha could have conservatively accumulated close on R2 million in wages for sitting at home while the disciplinary process ensues.

Ollis said what is quite clear is that the ANC run government has failed to implement proper procedures to ensure the completion of disciplinary processes within reasonable time frames, and therefore tacitly allows officials to be on suspension endlessly, with full pay.

Ollis said they are requesting the Leader of Government Business, Cyril Ramaphosa that as a matter of urgency, he intervene in the matter and ensure the disciplinary process is concluded as soon as possible.

“It is unacceptable that ordinary tax paying South Africans are footing the bill for a suspended employee’s salary, which now borders on R2 million Ollis added.

Cosatu says appointment of Tim Harris at WESGRO is corrupt

Lusanda Bill
12 December 2014

The Congress of South African Trade Union in the Western Cape has described the appointment of Tim Harris as CEO of WESGRO as corrupt. 

Cosatu’s Tony Ehrenreich said the suitability of Tim Harris is highly questionable for such an important position, given his displayed incompetence in matters economic.

Ehrenreich said a job was created for Tim Harris at the City of Cape Town when there was no position and no funds. Money was taken away from delivering services to poor communities to pay him an enormous salary.

“Now that the CEO of Wesgro has left, now we can see that he was just on hold for the job in Wesgro. This clearly smacks of corruption in the City of Cape Town and we are asking the Public Protector to investigate it” Ehrenreich added.

Meanwhile the Chairman of the Wesgro Board of Directors Professor Brian Figaji said the appointment of Tim Harris was not politically motivated. 

He added that Harris went through a lengthy process which was not corrupt.

Figaji said we had 119 applications we shortlisted eight people and one person withdrew. We interviewed seven and sent three people for tests and then we selected one person.

“So that is the process that was followed. I am not sure what the bases for the comment from Cosatu.  I do not know the politics of the city and I am not particularly interested in what is happening there, but we were looking for a CEO for Wesgro” Figaji added.
