One of the main reasons why ESKOM is failing at a rapid pace is because the ANC failed to either:
01. Maintain existing infrastructure
02. Adding new power stations on time in response to the growing population
Experts released a report in 1998 during the time when Mandela was President that warned that if ESKOM didn't maintain or add any power stations, trouble was looming in the future in the form of loadshedding blackouts but unfortunately, the ANC didn't listen to experts because they were too busy with corruption activities.
According to Wikipedia of loadshedding, the reason why ESKOM infrastructure wasn't maintained is because at some point, between 1998 and 2007, the ANC considered privatizing ESKOM but those plans never materialized.
