The South African Federation of Trade Unions has confirmed its planned protest against the rolling blackouts at Eskom Megawatt Park in Sunninghill tomorrow.
Saftu’s national spokesperson, Trevor Shaku, says the picket will also oppose the privatisation of Eskom.
Eskom is currently implementing stage 4 power cuts.
Shaku says the current crisis is partly due to current mismanagement, and partly a culmination of historic neglect rooted in the ANC’s intention to privatise the generation sector.
