DA launches petition to object to Eskom’s request for a 20.5% electricity hike

Please find an attached video by DA Leader, John Steenhuisen MP 

The DA has launched a petition calling on all South African to oppose Eskom’s application to hike the price of electricity by 20, 5% for the 2022/2023 financial year. 

Eskom’s proposal is completely out of touch with the lived reality of many South Africans, which is why DA governments from across the country are already taking on the battle to get Eskom to withdraw this exorbitant request for electricity hike. 

The rising cost of living for the average South African consumer, and Eskom’s failure to provide a consistent supply of energy to South Africans over the years, makes the tariff increase request ill-conceived and outrageous. 

South Africans just cannot afford yet another hike in electricity prices. The DA encourages all South Africans to strengthen our efforts to oppose this outrageous increase by signing our petition using the following link: https://www.notoincreases.co.za/ 

We cannot allow poor South Africans to once again bear the brunt of the ANC’s government failings and mismanagement.
