PULLING THE RUG

3rd February 2023 The call by President Cyril Ramaphosa for the Eskom board to consider ways of postponing the 18.65% tariff increase approved recently by the regulator, has received support from cash-strapped and loadshedding-fatigued consumers. However, it also lacks any legal basis and has the potential to... 

SINKING FEELING

27th January 2023 Given internal ANC political dynamics, it looks like it will be difficult to reverse the decision to move the large State-owned enterprises from the Department of Public Enterprises to their line departments. For Eskom, such a shift is particularly problematic, as it will further blur the policy... 

COMES WITH BAGGAGE

20th January 2023 Any thoughts of South Africa making an entirely fresh start in 2023 after what was a difficult 2022, were quickly snuffed out. Not only has there been ongoing loadshedding, but many of the other hangovers from last year remain ever-present, including the obvious signs of infrastructure decay and... 

NOWHERE TO HIDE

16th December 2022 No matter how hard the African National Congress tries to hide its toxic factional politics it’s plain for all to see and it doesn’t seem to be getting any better. It’s reaching a point where surely something has to give, if not internally, at the ballot box. The frightening thing for South... 

DEFLATING

9th December 2022 This year’s FIFA World Cup has had its fair share of upsets, which has deflated the egos of some of the bigger teams. The performance of the South African economy in 2022 has been equally deflating. The year started with hopes for a solid recovery following two years of Covid disruption. However,... 

LEADERSHIP PUZZLE

2nd December 2022 With the African National Congress gearing up for its 55th National Elective Conference many citizens are doubtful whether its new leaders will be able to finally place country before party. Finding the answer to this real-life riddle may appear far more intricate than the poplar Web-based word... 

UNDER PRESSURE

25th November 2022 The South African Institution of Civil Engineering launched its 2022 Infrastructure Report Card earlier this month, which uses a five-point scale from A (world-class) to E (unfit-for-purpose) to score the state of the country’s infrastructure. This year’s report had an overall score of D, which... 

HEAVY LIFTING

18th November 2022 After significant research, lobbying and consultative efforts, the first concessional finance has started to flow towards Eskom’s plan to repower and repurposed those coal power station sites that are scheduled for retirement. The World Bank Group has approved a 497-million finance package for... 

JOURNEY ENDS & BEGINS

11th November 2022 The scrapping of e-tolls became inevitable when there was massive civil disobedience, led by the well-organised civil society grouping initially know as Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance, or OUTA, which later transitioned to become the Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse. The resistance weakened... 

WATER WORRIES

4th November 2022 With electricity loadshedding now a part of daily life in South Africa, there is growing anxiety about the prospect of water-shedding. Already several towns across the country are struggling either with water supply or face serious water quality problems. The recent disruptions in Gauteng also...
