When it comes to the issue of loadshedding, the African National Congress Youth League has decided to take matters into their own hands by planning marches. Even though Eskom is in a dire situation, several members of the African National Congress have remained mute.
Sozophila Mkhize, the spokeswoman for the National Young Task Team, said that young people were sick of complaining to the ANC's top brass about loadshedding by Eskom and that it was time to do something about it.
However, Mkhize expressed fear that they might be removed from the ANC for gathering South African citizens in opposition to Eskom's executive, but he also said that he would not be offended if this were to happen because they are exhausted.

Mkhize, on the other hand, claims that loadshedding is the real cause of this mobilization, not factional strife, because the effects of loadshedding are felt by everyone in South Africa. He argues that this is the reason for the mobilization.
"There is currently no fighting amongst the factions that we are a part of. We're doing what we can to figure out why there's load shedding and how to stop it. The leadership of South Africa is incompetent, and it is purposely misleading the populace." She claimed that Ramaphosa's administration is shielding Eskom CEO André De Ruyter to ensure he stays in his current position. In other words, [Citation needed]
Instead of firing both Gwede Mantashe and Pravin Gordhan, the white monopoly bourgeoisie is now requesting that they fire Gwede Mantashe, a name with racial overtones.
