NATIONAL NEWS - Although South Africans are understandably annoyed by the inconvenience that is loadshedding, no one seems as annoyed as EFF chief whip and deputy president Floyd Shivambu.
After telling his Twitter followers to not trust the ANC with long-term planning and solutions in light of former president Jacob Zuma’s promise that there would never be load shedding ever again, Shivambu has shared yet another one of his thoughts on the matter.
According to Shivambu, the so-called shortage of coal is fictional nonsense just like the “Day Zero”.
He went on to allege the DA wanted to raise money for elections so they used Day Zero and Cape Town’s water crisis as a cover to do so.
“Coal shortage is used as a mechanism to justify and legitimate the nonsensical and costly Independent Power Producers. We are Back to square One,” added Shivambu.
