Eskom headquarters’ power cut, intimidation at regional offices

Sparks are flying at Eskom‚ as protesting workers converge on the electricity utility’s headquarters in Johannesburg — which “mysteriously” had its power cut off on Thursday.

Khulu Phasiwe‚ Eskom’s spokesperson‚ reported that: “Intimidation and road blockades are rife at most of Eskom’s power stations and regional offices this morning‚ a move that might compromise Eskom’s ability to keep the lights on.

“Meanwhile‚ power supply has just been ‘mysteriously’ cut off at Eskom head office Megawatt Park.”

Trade unions NUM and Numsa are staging protest action against the cash-strapped company’s decision to impose a wage freeze on workers as it tries to balance its finances.
