Lighting for whom?

-

CLAIRWOOD Ratepayers’ Associatio­n chairman Rishi Singh warns that Eskom’s electricit­y price rises will make it “completely unaffordab­le” for the poor (Sunday Tribune, October 18).

Ironically, the architect of this debacle is the ANC, which claims to be the champion of the poor.

Eskom’s crippling tariff hikes make a mockery of one of the aims of the ANC’s holy writ, the Freedom Charter, which, inter alia, vows that “all will have lighting”.
