Below is an article published by Bush Radio:

The Freedom Front Plus has joined the Congress of South African Trade Unions in condemning the 31-point-three-percent electricity tariff increase granted Eskom.

The FF Plus’ Willie Spies says it is bad news for consumers as it will push inflation higher and restrict economic growth.

He adds that it is a pity that Eskom’s management problems have now become the problem of consumers and taxpayers.

Spies says the provisioning of power should be deregulated and the monopoly held by Eskom should be broken with innovative energy alternatives.
