The National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa said in a statement that it notes the malicious statements issued by the National Electricity Regulator of South Africa.

It is alleged that Nersa accused Numsa of being behind the disruption of its public hearing in Port Elizabeth on Wednesday. 

 National Spokesperson Castro Ngobese said the public disruption of the hearing was never sanctioned by Numsa or any of its elected leadership.

Ngobese said NUMSA was not part of the discussion and the discussion was not sanctioned by NUMSA but what they have done as NUMSA was that they had to go outside to listen to the grievances of the people who actually disrupted the hearing.

Ngobese said that as NUMSA they agree with the people that NERSA should reconsider convening these hearings in areas whereby it can be easy accessible by communities so that they can participate in these hearings and also so that NUMSA solicits all their views of society.
