ANC Must Stop Using Renewable Energy Lobbyists To Write Their Energy Policy Papers - Matshela Fumes.

Former Eskom chief Koko Matshela, whose position was terminated by then-president Cyril Ramaphosa on charges of defilement, has issued a stern rebuke to the ANC regarding the persistence of loadshedding.

As Eskom has struggled to keep the lights on, loadshedding has progressed from stage one to stage eight.

Matshela Koko asserts that these power shortages would continue unless the ANC eliminates their lobbyists who advocate for renewable energy and compile their energy policy archives.

The former head of Eskom asserts that as long as the ANC does not probe this subject, loadshedding would continue to trouble South Africa as late as 2035.

"ANC should cease employing green energy lobbyists to draft their energy strategy documents.

In light of the current situation and continuous ANC dialogue reports, I believe that South Africa will experience power outages/loadshedding in 2035 "he added.

Matshela adds that he and his team, who fought to keep the lights on during their tenure at Eskom, are eventually successful, given the current state of the company.

"The ANC has neglected to provide a crucial element for achieving energy security and power quality. By 2025, Eskom must achieve an EAF of 75 percent. Typically, it's a disaster.

Solar + Wind + Batteries do not constitute the lattice. We desire a stable lattice. We want karma, "he remarked.

He added that other nations, such as India, are returning to the use of coal at maximum capacity to meet their energy needs, and that South Africa should do the same instead of relying solely on renewable energy, which is not meeting the demand.

"Invoking Section 11 of the Electricity Act, the public authority of India has ordered all imported coal-based power plants to operate at maximum capacity as power demand continues to rise.

Sadly, South Africa and de Ruyter must close 22,000 megawatts of coal power plants "he remarked.
