  • City Press in South Africa reports that a high-ranking Eskom executive may soon face arrest for orchestrating the sabotage of various power stations.
  • High-level discussions have taken place between security cluster ministers, State Security Agency (SSA) and the police regarding the serious allegations against the executive.
  • South Africa’s state owned energy utility, Eskom, has been plagued by acts of sabotage which only serve to deepen the energy crisis in the country. 
  • South African’s will face up to 16 hours of blackouts daily this winter.

It has long been suspected that sabotage has been internally orchestrated at Eskom for personal enrichment and political outcomes. WhatsApp messages obtained by the police and the SSA which if found to be authentic,  expose the executive’s modus operandi. The allegations extend beyond just the unnamed executive and involve a forensic auditor, Eskom engineers, unemployed artisans, and families of those involved, reports City Press.
