Eskom is South Africa's only electricity supplier but it cannot provide its only service. They are currently fighting for another hike in tarrifs, lying about the stage of loadshedding, causing damage to electrical units, drawing the country closer to junk status and causing a major inconvenience to small businesses. 

Eskom's incompetency has resulted in a security risk not only for people's safety because it gives thieves and rapists an open window but also financially because not all entrepreneurs can afford to run generators or buy backup units. 

Why are we allowing them to block independent electricity suppliers? To sink the country into junk status? To inconvenience everyone by sitting in the dark and not being able to work efficiently? To make us worry about the organic products in the chiller that might go off? To hold us at ransom by turning off the power to get their price increase? 

South Africa has a big unemployment problem and Eskom is making it worse. More service providers would mean job creation and more power on the grid to keep your lights on. 

Let's stand together and stop Eskom before it is too late. Sign the petition to take them on by allowing a competitive playing field.
