Give South Africa its power back!

Support the DA's plan to save Eskom before it takes the entire country down with it.

 

For the past decade, the ANC has put band-aids onto bullet wounds at Eskom. We desperately need change in our energy sector in order to stabilise the economy and create much need jobs for our people.

The President must do more than offer a mere word of apology for the tens of thousands of jobs lost and businesses closed – he must act to turn this desperate situation around.

The DA has a plan:

1. Reject pressure from the ANC’s union allies opposing the introduction of Independent Power Producers. They must be allowed to sell power to the grid immediately!

2. Freeze the build on the last two costly units at Kusile, and look to bring on more IPPs to provide power.

3. Allow Eskom to procure coal from any source. Review all Eskom’s diesel contracts, and ensure the cheapest diesel is sourced.

4. Instruct PetroSA to supply Eskom with diesel at tax-free cost prices to avert a crisis in the short-term!

5. Allow well-functioning metros to source energy directly from independent power producers.

6. Reaffirm Eskom’s engineering and maintenance employees as an “essential service” that cannot enter into strike action.

7. Install major smart meters for municipalities to force municipalities to collect revenue timeously.

Please sign this petition if you agree that it is time for the President to find the political will, and do what is best for South Africa.

Implement the DA’s plan. Save South Africa!
