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.
