Commending Eskom on 50 Days of Uninterrupted Electricity Supply


Public Interest SA Commends Eskom Employees on 50 Days of Uninterrupted Electricity Supply

Johannesburg, South Africa - May 15, 2024 - Public Interest SA stands alongside millions of South Africans in celebrating a significant milestone: 50 consecutive days of uninterrupted electricity supply by Eskom. We extend our heartfelt commendation to the diligent, committed, and hardworking employees of Eskom, whose tireless efforts have contributed to this remarkable achievement.

The consistent and reliable performance of Eskom's electricity generation fleet underscores a pivotal turning point in our nation's energy landscape. Particularly noteworthy is the positive impact on our economy, which has long suffered from the repercussions of unreliable power supply. The dedication of Eskom's workforce has led to improved levels of energy supply, offering a beacon of hope for economic revitalization.

Public Interest SA acknowledges the unwavering resolve of Eskom employees in ensuring optimal performance of the electricity generation fleet. Their resilience and dedication have been instrumental in elevating the nation's energy security, especially during challenging times. We commend their professionalism and commitment to excellence.

It is regrettable that certain individuals, including Eskom's former CEO, Andre de Ruyter, have chosen to detract from this significant achievement with baseless claims and negative sentiments. Suggestions that these improvements are influenced by elections are unfounded and must be dismissed outright. Such assertions undermine the hard work and dedication of Eskom's employees and do a disservice to the nation.

We urge the hardworking men and women of Eskom to persist in their commendable efforts to permanently reverse load shedding and ensure South Africa's energy security. Their dedication is a source of pride for the nation, and we stand in solidarity with them as they continue to strive for excellence.

Public Interest SA remains committed to supporting initiatives that contribute to the well-being and prosperity of our nation. Together, we can build a brighter and more sustainable future for all South Africans.
