Soos ‘n boek wat toegemaak word, word inligting van die algemene publiek weerhou of soms word verskillende artikels en inligtingstukke se eindpunte nooit bymekaar gebring nie. Elektrisiteit gaan wel landuit na ander Afrika state. Die vraag is, kan steenkool wel nat word – hoekom nou skielik, daar is tog baie reen in SA, ook voor 1994 toe het ons geen beurtkrag gehad nie? – Die “redes aangevoer” vir beurtkrag is lagwekkend. Die laaste paar jaar klink eerder soos foefies. Vrae en antwoorde in parlement is nie voldoende reaksies nie – daar word niks bereik nie. Waar is die president en betrokke verantwoordelike ministers?
Hoekom word sommiges wat geld skuld, eenvoudig afgeskryf en kragpunte nie afgesny wat niks betaal nie?
Waar beland al die geld en elektrisiteit – Mosambiek-Zambia-Zimbabwe of elders in die groter planne van die ANC en wie saam hulle is?
Dis baie verdag wat ook in ander lande aangaan, sommige besighede het toegemaak en elders anders gegaan, padgegee uit hul eie lande uit. Intussen word daar beurtkrag uitgevoer sodat sommiges in die Afrika state gratis kan krag verkry. Eskom kan nie aan sy eie betaalde gebruikers krag voosien nie, en voer verskonings aan.
Is daar beurtkrag ook in Afrika?
PARLIAMENT SOUTH AFRICA
7 November 2019
Three foreign state-owned power utilities owe Eskom R632m in outstanding payments. This was revealed in a parliamentary reply by public enterprises minister Pravin Gordhan in response to a question posed by the DA. The party said while Gordhan may be of the view that R632m would have a minimal impact on Eskom’s cash flow, in reality every cent counted when the power utility had debt of about R420bn.
Zimbabwe Electricity Supply Authority (Zesa Holdings) owes Eskom R322m, Electricidade de Moçambique (EDM) owes R221m and Zambian state-owned power company Zesco owes R89m. “Half a billion rands is an astonishing amount of money and could, in the long term, go a long way in stabilising the financial woes at Eskom,” said DA chief whip Natasha Mazzone. “As such, the DA has written to minister Gordhan to request that he makes public the payment plans that Eskom has with these foreign governments which owe the utility millions in unpaid debt,” she said.
She said in addition to the R632m owed by these foreign power utilities, Eskom was also owed close to R20bn in outstanding debt by municipalities across South Africa. “Clearly Eskom is incapable of collecting debts both at home and abroad. This begs the question: does Eskom actually have plans in place to collect debts owed to it? “If not, the utility will never be able to stabilise its cash flow, and the taxpayer will continue to pay for bailout after bailout,” Mazzone said.
JUST UNBELIEVABLE AND NOT ACCEPTABLE
1000. Mr D Joseph (DA) to ask the Minister of Public Enterprises:
(1) What is the total number of international governments and private companies to whom Eskom provided electricity?
(a) is the total amount of outstanding payments to Eskom by the respective clients,
(b) are the reasons for the outstanding cost and (c) type of disputes are delaying payment of the outstanding cost;
(3) What are the implications of the outstanding payments to Eskom on its debt or the special appropriations that Eskom is requesting from the Government;
(4) What type of supply and payment solutions will Eskom implement to international clients? NW2152E
According to the information received from Eskom
(1) As at 19 September 2019, the total number of international governments and
private companies to whom Eskom provides electricity is 10.
(2)(a) As at 19 September 2019, the total amount of outstanding payments to Eskom by
the respective clients is R632 million.
(2)(b) There are three clients who have outstanding payments to Eskom and the
reasons for these are displayed in the table below.
(2)(c) All the monies owed to Eskom are not in dispute. Eskom’s clients acknowledge
their debt and attribute economic challenges as well as financial constraints as
the cause of their delays in settling the outstanding debt.
(3) These funds could assist minimally with Eskom’s cash flows.
(4) Eskom will ensure that future contracts are designed to avoid build-up of debt in future.
The state-owned power utility Eskom has escalated the load-shedding from stage 2 initially implemented on Thursday to stage 4 today. Although 6am on Saturday (7th) morning is mentioned on the announcement, it may reportedly be prolonged until the end of the weekend.
“The increase in the load-shedding stage is intended, among other things, to cater for further unplanned trips and to create capacity to replenish water reserves for our pumped storage schemes,” the official statement read.
The severe pressure on the grid along with the unplanned breakdowns and the incessant rain have all contributed to the implementation of this measure. The latest did that by causing serious coal-handling problems at many power plants.
“This could further impact supply as the rainy weather persists. While not expected or planned, further deterioration of plant performance or the emergence of other risks may necessitate invoking further stages of load-shedding,” the officials stated. “If the wet persists, we are likely to implement load-shedding throughout the weekend.”
In the meantime, diesel and water resources are used by Eskom at its open-cycle gas turbines to supplement the capacity and limit the amount of load-shedding.
Hoekom word Soweto en ander plekke uitgesonder – het dit te doen met politieke stem? of George Soros?
Eskom – Soweto – R3.6 bn – ander wanbetalers
Hoekom verwissel die bestuur so vinnige en almal verdien groot salarisse en bonusse!
Is Eskom honest? who is?
Kan steenkool regtig “nat” word dat dit nie meer brand nie, word dit nie natgemaak vir stof nie?

Times reported during December 2018, about Eskom’s bad debt, mismanagement and failing plants, the troubled power utility has seen its fair share of blows this year, leading to questions about the sustainability of the state-owned entity. The total debt for Eskom climbed by 14% to R419bn in the past six months (until the end of September). According to Business Day, the power utility’s service-cost debt doubled to R45bn in a year. Despite only generating R26bn from operations, Eskom’s profit also dropped from R6.3bn to R671m in 2017. The power utility’s primary energy costs increased by 12% to R46bn and employee-benefit expense grew by 12% to R16.9bn. And the salaries are sky high.

Terrorism – Arson – Optimum Mine sustained millions in damages after a devastating fire set the mine’s conveyor belts alight on Sunday, 15 September 2019. What about all the pollution in the air and water? Wie doen sulke dinge aan hul eie land? Vernietiging – nie net van infrastrukture nie, maar ook hier kan duidelik gesien word hoeveel skade word ons wat almal bygedra het tot die voorsiening van infrastrukture.
Eskom – Sabotasie – belastingbetalers
So van brande gepraat – enige persoon wat ‘n ander eiendom vernietig met brande, is niks anders as ‘n terroris nie. Beweeg maar net op ons geskiedenis terug, dan word daar by die britse kolonies uitgekom voor daar ‘n Suid-Afrika was. Veral tydens die Anglo boere oorlog was ons voorouers net so verniel en afgedreig met brande. Alle voedsel is aan die brand gesteek, voor hulle in konsentrasie kampe beland het en wie almal se eiendom meestal verwoes is om ons uit te wis.
Hoeveel trokke het al uitgebrand wat steenkool vervoer?

Business media reported 2018 – A South African consortium called Project Halo has submitted the winning bid of R3.05 billion for three major assets of Tegeta Exploration & Resources, the Gupta family-linked mining company under administration since February. Project Halo will buy Optimum Coal Mine for a maximum of R2.8bn, Koornfontein Mines for R200 million and Optimum Coal Terminal for R50m, according to the term sheet.
Glencore sold Optimum to Tegeta Exploration and Resources in 2015, and it was placed under business rescue after Eskom refused to renegotiate what it said was an unprofitable coal-supply contract and issued penalties.
Who are the board members?
Eskom is die monopolie en manipuleer elke belastingpligtige, besigheid en betalers – die nie-betalers en onwettiges moet skoert uit die land uit, hulle het ‘n land. Ander munisipaliteite en owerhede, buurlande wat nie betaal nie, se elektrisiteit moet totaal afgesit word en dit kan aangesit word as hulle dit die dag eendag betaal.
