Sign the Petition to

Eskom and national parliament of South Africa

Each year Eskom and government are looking for electricity tariff hike. 2008(9) - 27.5% / 2009(10) - 31.3% / 2010(11) - 24.8% / 2011(12) - 25.8% and now they are looking at another 16% increase for the next five years. It is funny enough that each time when Eskom applies for major increases, we have blackout and power outages, i.e. Unexpected maintenance or Koeberg shutdowns.

Signed,

If all these basic services (Water, swerageand rubbish collection etc) are run like a private business entities whom focusing on profits only, we will be heading the road similar to Zimbabwe. There will be more financial burdens imposed on us on top of the rising fuel, inflation and other living expenses. It is now the time we stand together against this shameful tactics used by Eskom and government. The signed petitions will be send to National assembly and present to the government (ANC).
