All South Africans are responsible for power cuts, and it is a pain that the entire country has to bear.
So says Eskom chairman Jabu Mabuza.
"Either through our people or our government… but these are problems that we have all caused. There is a role that we all have to play; shareholders, providers of capital, staff, customers. This the choice of pain we need to take to going forward to try and put us back in a sustainable way," Mabuza said.
Mabuza, along with public enterprises minister Pravin Gordhan, Eskom CEO Phakamani Hadebe and other board members, was addressing the media in Johannesburg on the affairs at the utility.
The briefing came as the country faced more stage 2 power cuts. Locals and several business owners have lambasted the public utility for the power cuts.
