CR backers who believe in Ramaphosa's new dawn claim it is Zuma's fault that Eskom is in dire state, and cannot afford to keep lights on. They cite that his so-called nine wasted years is what destroyed Eskom's ability to effectively power the nation.
Former president Jacob Zuma's allies however disagree with that perspective and maintain that Zuma has nothing to do with the challenges that Eskom is facing at the moment under Cyril Ramaphosa's new dawn.
They further stated that Ramaphosa's new dawn is only looking for an excuse to privatise Eskom which will be detrimental for many as there will be no guarantee that ordinary South Africans will still be able to afford electricity if Eskom is privatised.
"Zuma has nothing to do with the current sabotage of Eskom! They want to private it, then own energy resources in South Africa. The same SOEs you were screaming were sold to Guptas are now being sold to whites, and now that's ok because in your mind, whites are not corrupt," said one of Zuma's staunch supporters.
Eskom's power struggles are expected to continue for some time with no clear solution in sight. Critics say that during Zuma's era many people were paid to be angry, buses were organised for people to march in the streets for an anti-Zuma campaign.
But under Cyril Ramaphosa's administration people are experiencing loadshedding stage 6 and not being angry enough. Some believe that it is high time that ANC calls a special meeting to discuss about Eskom's problems and how they can be addressed.
"ANC NEC must call a meeting to deal with Eskom and they must recommend that Koko and Brian must report to duty at Eskom," others argued.
