WHY THE PAST CANNOT BE BLAMED FOR ESKOM’S WOES !!

eskomProf. Christo Viljoen, ex-Eskom board and ex-NERSA member

The facts are that the past cannot be blamed for electricity utility Eskom’s present crisis situation.
The real question is why Eskom drew up an emergency recovery plan in case the country should suffer a countrywide electricity blackout?
Even in First World countries it would take several days to get supply up and running again. Eskom’s prediction that the country will in the case of a total blackout be without electricity for up to two weeks, is optimistic in the face of the size of the network.
There are 87 generators, which will have to be returned to the network one by one after each one has been synchronised.

Brief Aan Zuma

AgentMolDear President Zuma,
Please find below our suggestion for fixing South Africa ‘s economy.
Instead of giving billions of rand to the government that will squander the money on lavish parties and unearned bonuses, use the following plan.
You can call it the Patriotic Retirement Plan :

There are about 10 million people over 50 in the work force.
Pay them R2 million each severance for early retirement with the following stipulations :

1) They MUST retire.
Ten million job openings – unemployment fixed

2) They MUST buy a new car.
Ten million cars ordered – Car Industry fixed

3) They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage – Housing Crisis fixed

4) They MUST send their kids to school/college/university – Crime rate fixed

5) They MUST buy R100 WORTH of alcohol/tobacco a week…..
And there’s your money back in duty/tax etc

It can’t get any easier than that!

P.S. If more money is needed, have all members of parliament pay back their falsely claimed expenses and second home allowances
If you think this would work, please forward to everyone you know.
Also…..
Let’s put the pensioners in jail and the criminals in a nursing home.
This way the pensioners would have access to showers, hobbies and walks.
They’d receive unlimited free prescriptions, dental and medical treatment, wheel chairs etc. and they’d receive money instead of paying it out.
They would have constant video monitoring, so they could be helped instantly, if they fell, or needed assistance.
Bedding would be washed twice a week, and all clothing would be ironed and returned to them.
A guard would check on them every 20 minutes and bring their meals and snacks to their cell.
They would have family visits in a suite built for that purpose.
They would have access to a library, weight room, spiritual counselling, pool and education.
Simple clothing, shoes, slippers, PJ’s and legal aid would be free, on request.
Private, secure rooms for all, with an exercise outdoor yard, with gardens.
Each senior could have a PC, a TV or radio and daily phone calls.
There would be a board of directors to hear complaints, and the guards would have a code of conduct that would be strictly adhered to.

The criminals would get cold food, be left all alone and unsupervised.
Lights off at 8pm, and showers once a week.
Live in a tiny room and pay R1,000.00+ per week and have no hope of ever getting out.

Think about this (more points of contention) :

COWS
Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that during the mad cow epidemic our government could track a single cow, born in Rivier-sonder-End almost three years ago, right to the stall where she slept?
And, they even tracked her calves to their stalls. But they are unable to locate 5 000,000 illegal immigrants wandering around our country.

Maybe we should give each of them a cow.

LASTLY
Think about this … It is time for us grumpy old folk of S.A. to speak up!

The 4 black lies about land in South Africa.

The 4 black lies about land in South Africa. Bantu (black Africans) DO NOT have default right to land. (http://news-headlines.co.za)

original

Contrary to popular “politically correct” propaganda put out by mass media, the Bantu, like Europeans, are also settler’s in Southern Africa, having arrived in Northern South Africa about the same time Europeans arrived in Southern South Africa (The Cape). The Bantu had arrived after an extended conquest and genocidal migration southwards from West Africa (Nigeria).

Etymology, history, origins and expansion of the proto-Bantu people of Africa. Bantu peoples is used as a general label for the 300–600 ethnic groups in Africa who speak Bantu languages. The word Bantu and its variations means “people” or “humans”. Versions of this word occur in all Bantu languages.
