A portrait of a living history.
ESKOM, the South African electricity provider, is known for its load shedding. Since 1994 when the ANC took over the reigns in South Africa there was hardly any maintenance, replacements of generators, etc. and certainly no vision; just politics and ‘looting’. On local level ESKOM engineers could not even straighten our the poles, etc. Since a few years there is a new management at ESKOM trying to repossess what was stolen and working on updating the present infrastructure including the introduction of alternative energy sources such as wind and solar (instead of coal).
