Cosatu calling the problems at Eskom a national crisis

Lusanda Bill
19 March 2015

The Congress of South African Trade Union has labelled problems at Eskom which include load-shedding and suspension of four executives as a national crisis.

In a statement Cosatu said it the power utility cannot guarantee a rapid return to normal power supply, the economy faces a disaster and as always the workers and the poor will be the biggest casualties.

Cosatu National Spokesperson Patrick Craven said far more needs to be done by Eskom, government and indeed society as a whole to solve these problems.

Craven said we don’t feel that the latest suspension of four executives is going to help any much at all particularly since one of them, the Chief Executive has only been there since September.
