Hierdie is nie net korrupsie waar daar ‘n paar rand gesteel is nie, dit het in ‘n domino effek verander en ons ekonomies baie geskaad . Aan die einde moet ons as lede van die publiek baie duur betaal vir sabotasie en terrorisme, wat “gemanipuleer” word deur dieselfde spul wat destyds alles so gesaboteer het. Dit grens aan verraad teenoor Suid-Afrika, ons ekonomie en oorlewing. Nie almal steun die ANC of hulle grondwet nie, maar dinge na 1994 is beslis nie wat dit moet wees vir ‘n demokrasie nie. Selfs swart en khoisan volke het steeds aangegaan om in hul aparte gebiede te bly en hul eie kulture bevorder.
voor 1994 ……….. years back
Sabotage to Eskom lines ! Who paid for those damages?
Hoe verskil dit van die ANC, PAC en ander terreurdade in 1960-1964, waar Eskom netso, indien nie erger, gesaboteer is? Destyds het ons ‘n goeie en betroubare weermag gehad, en baie van hierdie Eskom en ander plekke is militer opgepas. Sommige plekke is nie opgepas nie.
MK – ANC – RIVONIA
16 December 1961 – A newly military spin-off organization of the ANC, Umkhonto We Sizwe, launches a campaign of sabotage against South Africa’s National Party government by lighting explosives at an electricity sub-station. Over the next eighteen months, there will be dozens of other incidents involving sabotaged facilities.
11 August 1963 – Two men the government hoped to charged with conspiracy and sabotage, Harold Wolpe and Arthur Goldreich, escape from a South African jail and within twelve days are out of the country.
The Rivonia defendants appear at the Palace of Justice in Pretoria, as the trial opens. The defendants are charged with sabotage and conspiracy. The defense asks for time to prepare its case. Justice de Wet grants a three-week adjournment.
Eventually, Mandela’s arguments won over the ANC, which voted to establish a separate and independent military organ,
Umkhonto we Sizwe, or “Spear of the Nation” (or MK, for short).
In June 1961, Mandela sent to South African newspapers a letter warning that a new campaign would be launched unless the government agreed to call for a national constitutional convention. Knowing that no such call would be forthcoming, Mandela retreated to the Rivonia hideout to began planning, with other supporters, a sabotage campaign.
The campaign began on December 16, 1961 when Umkhonto we Sizwe saboteurs lit explosives at an electricity sub-station. Dozens of other acts of sabotage followed over the next eighteen months. (Indeed, the government would allege the defendants committed 235 separate acts of sabotage.) The sabotage included attacks on government posts, machines, and power facilities, as well as deliberate crop burning.
“Then on the night of 16 December last year the whole of South Africa vibrated under the heavy blows of Umkhonto we Sizwe. Government buildings were blasted with explosives in Johannesburg, the industrial heart of South Africa; in Port Elizabeth; and in Durban. It was now clear that this was a political demonstration of a formidable kind, and the press announced the beginning of planned acts of sabotage in the country.
In late 1975, Cuba deployed 55,000 of its own troops, which fought alongside the MPLA military forces and others to defeat the SADF for the first time. Cuban internationalist forces would remain in Angola for 13 years, until the apartheid army was defeated by the combined forces of Cuban President Fidel Castro’s army, the Angolan military, the armed wing of the South West Africa People’s Organization, the People’s Liberation Army of Namibia and Um Khonto We Sizwe, which had bases inside Angola. Some 350,000 Cubans would serve in Angola between 1975 and 1989, making a monumental contribution to the African Revolution.
Die DA vra dat onafhanklike oudits gedoen word, waarmee saamgestem word. Al hul kragstasies en projekte die afgelope 10-15 jaar en sedert daar beurtkrag begin is, selfs die verhoogde tariewe moet in ag geneem word, waar het al ons publieke geld heen verdwyn. Dit geld nie net vir Eskom nie, maar ook vir SAL, Denel en alle ander staatsbeheerde maatskappye. Hoekom staan kragstasies botstil en is daar persone “werksaam” teen betaling, maar geen krag word gelewer nie?
Die sogenaamde “oorlogskamer” word kwansuis ingerig om alles in plek te kry, moontlik vir Ramaphosa om te ontbondel – wie gaan pa staan hiervoor en watter elites wat B-BBEE manipuleer word hierby toegelaat om te ontbondel?
Waarom dieselfde ministers betrokke in die skandale, hiervoor aanwend?
Die ANC kan nie regter speel in korrupsie en sabotasie wat hulle eerstens toegelaat het nie en behoort totaal en al onafhanklik te wees, wat beslis nie lede van die parlement en ANC of enige politieke party wat betrokke is/was nie. Hulle is hoegenaamd nie betroubaar om Eskom se probleme wat hulle veroorsaak en toegelaat het, te probeer oplos nie.
Enige groot maatskappy soos Eskom en alle ander SOE’s, het kwansuis sulke betroubare ouditeure en behoort kwartaal en maandverslae te voorsien – deur wie is hierdie ouditeure betaal om die korrupsie toe te laat.
Word korrupsie gerieflik nie opgetel om mekaar te beskerm, asook die betrokke ministers en president.
In hierdie geval, wie is Eskom se ouditeure dat hulle nie al hierdie projekte monitor en rapporteer nie.
Ministers in beheer van Eskom asook die President van die land (Ramaphosa) en al die ander SOE’s wat so steel, moet pa staan vir hierdie misdade. Daar moet hoe boetes opgele word en elke sent moet met rente, vir ekstra inkomstes terugbetaal word, ook SARS. Waar kruip SARS weg in al hierdie korrupsie?
Two former Eskom executives, two business directors and representatives of seven companies are expected to appear in court in relation to corruption involving the construction of the troubled Kusile power station. What about the other power stations’ sabotage?
“In-depth investigations pointed to the fact that the contract was manipulated in a number of ways including, among others, manipulation of the Eskom’s procurement system by officials who occupied senior management positions, de-scoping of the contract at Kusile without justification and with conflict of interest by Eskom employees,” they said.
The Hawks and NPA stated already in June 2015 that Eskom’s Kusile project management team submitted a request to the power utility’s procurement committee for a mandate to negotiate and conclude a contract with one of the companies. What happened then after that investigation?
The DA on Tuesday called for a “full independent forensic audit” of state power supplier Eskom. “Given the dire state of power utility Eskom, the effect on the economy and the lives of ordinary citizens, the Democratic Alliance hereby calls for a full independent forensic audit of Eskom,” said shadow minister of public enterprises Ghaleb Cachalia.
“The system of patronage, graft and political paybacks have prevailed, and urgent steps need to be taken to remedy the situation. This rot cannot be left unattended, as it has for decades, under successive ANC governments.”
Cachalia’s remarks follow a media interview in which Eskom COO Jan Oberholzer said Eskom was “captured”, with the capture running “right through the entire organisation”.
Additionally, said Cachalia, it was not sufficient to re-establish an energy war room, which will be chaired by deputy president David Mabuza. The so-called war room is set to include finance minister Tito Mboweni, energy minister Gwede Mantashe and public enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan. They received a lot of money to break everything down.
Cachalia described the four as “the same quartet that has delivered the utility and the country to this parlous place”.
“What is needed is a thorough investigation into the maladministration and rot that has beset this key utility. Current measures announced by the presidency, including the accelerated installation of André de Ruyter as Eskom’s new CEO, raises questions about the terms of reference of his appointment and whether this would involve buying him out of his current contract with Nampak,” said Cachalia.
The government on Friday asked industry for the cheapest and quickest options to ease a power crunch.
“Currently, 20-year plus evergreen contracts which will cost the country an estimated R1.4 trillion are in existence and the former minister has refused to disclose the 27 IPP owners. This failure to disclose pertinent information creates more doubt and a heightened worry that those who participated in state capture are still beneficiaries at the cost of the average South African and our economy as a whole,” said Cachalia.
