    It is hard to see how SA can maintain a 1st world economy with ongoing load shedding. Businesses that don’t have to be in SA will start leaving. Even if businesses have their own generators, there is no avoiding all of the impact of load shedding given the impact on employees, customers, and vendors.

    Freedom, it may not be good that the service is needed but it is good to have something in place that might help.

    Some news from around South Africa. What to expect after three days with no electricity “Jeffreys Bay plunged into darkness for three days when the main power line, which supplies the area with electricity, collapsed on Saturday.
    ..pump stations also failed, resulting in raw sewage flooding the streets. Water could also not be pumped from boreholes, threatening the water supply.” http://www.iol.co.za/news/south-africa/eastern-cape/a-town-of-nightmares-1.1800331#.VK2IWNKUfTo

    Power failure for just a few hours ? “Durban – Holidaymakers who were heading home and business people rushing for international connecting flights had a chaotic day at King Shaka International Airport on Tuesday after flights were delayed by fuel delivery problems. Tuesday’s disruptions followed a day without water at the airport, on Monday
    …….there was a power failure at the airport in the morning, which affected the fuel pumps that supplied jet fuel.
    Municipality had not responded about the water cut-off ” http://www.iol.co.za/news/south-africa/kwazulu-natal/king-shaka-flights-chaos-1.1802075#.VK2FX9KUfTo and Eskom has warned that the country’s power grid is under pressure due to a loss of some generating units http://rekordcenturion.co.za/35181/load-shedding-warning-by-eskom/

    “Eskom CEO Tshediso Matona told shocked business leaders he was praying the power utility infrastructure would not crash.

    “Our senior managers pray that none of the current infrastructure breaks down. It could lead to a complete network breakdown,” he reportedly said.

    Beeld reported that according to the Afrikaans Trade Institute (AHI) head Christo van der Rheede, Matona said the country’s power network was on the brink of a complete breakdown.

    Earlier, the SA Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Sacci) called on its members to submit proposals on how to survive rolling blackouts.” http://www.iol.co.za/business/news/no-power-cuts-says-eskom-1.1804967#.VLbQLNKUfTo

    Yes, yet the big shots from Eskom got millions in bonuses.

    Natal ~ Zulu king call to arms – land grab
    The king said enemies of the Ngunis had not succumbed or disappeared.

    “That is why I say my regiment must be ready.“
    A spokesman for the Thembu nation in the Eastern Cape, Bhovulengwe Mtirara, said his nation supported the Zulu king’s call to Ngunis to reclaim their land.

    “The Nguni nation is one. It was only divided by foreigners. We need to reclaim even the urban land because it was taken from traditional leaders,” he said.

    Interesting article Leopard. I didn’t realize SA also had this tribal land claims problem too. Those folks are looking to turn the clocks back to a glorious past that they will quickly find out doesn’t live up to the expectations.

    And if they manage to pull a Zimbabwe and destroy the farms as they reclaim the land, they’ll get a tad hungry too.
