The DA announced on Saturday that they are organising a major protest march to the ANC headquarters at Luthuli House in Johannesburg on 25 January against the ANC-engineered electricity crisis.
The opposition party stressed that the protest will specifically target Luthuli House, “because this is the scene of the crime that the ANC continues to perpetrate against the people of South Africa through permanent stage 6 load shedding and the latest 18.65% electricity tariff increase”.
DA Leader John Steenhuisen said it is at Luthuli House where, over the past three decades, the decisions were made to “deploy” the corrupt and incompetent cadres who plundered and destroyed Eskom.
“It is at Luthuli House that corrupt tenders were handed out, including for the ill-fated construction of the Medupi and Kusile power stations that have cost our country so dearly”.
The DA is inviting all South Africans to join them to voice their anger at the ANC’s destruction of South Africa’s energy infrastructure and economy and to demand urgent solutions to this escalating crisis.
