The Congress of South African
Trade Union in the Western Cape has once again called for the load shedding
schedule to be investigated, as it is having a devastating effect on
communities and threatening jobs.
In a statement Cosatu stated
that the load shedding schedule is not fair as poorer communities like the Cape
Flats are at a disadvantage.
This as the country is in
stage three of load shedding until ten o’clock this evening due to Eskom’s
system being constrained and vulnerable.
Cosatu’s Tony Ehrenreich said
load shedding is long in the Cape Flats area while it is for minimal amounts
off in the wealthier area. The City of Cape Town has clearly put in place a
load shedding schedule that is unfair and still advantages the wealthy.
“We are calling for Eskom and
the Public Protector to investigate this load shedding so that the unfairness
can stop and the huge detrimental impacting our poor community is also averted
as the matter of urgency.” Ehrenreich added.
