Here's what a South African man said we have to do to fix Eskom that got people responding. Opinion.

Unfortunately Loadshedding is a problem that many South Africans have been facing for years and it's one that doesn't seem to be going away any time soon. This has got many people thinking about how we can fix this problem. One white man shared his opinion and it got a lot of people talking, Here's what he had to say.

His Opinion :

He shared his opinion in a public post to social media site Facebook. He started of his post by exclaiming "Awake". As if people need to wake up.

He than goes on to say that the qualified White tradesman who used to work for Eskom should be recalled and put on a two year contract and he guarantees that they will fix loadshedding like in the old days.

This of course got a lot of people talking. Here's what some of them had to say.

As we can see, while there are a lot of people who agree with him, there are also a few who disagree. The question that remains is, is he right. Here's what I think.

My Opinion :

Personally I agree with him, but I don't agree with the way he said it. He specifically says to recall all the "White" qualified tradesman, but doesn't aknowledge that there is a reason that the qualified tradesman were white.

We have to remember that during apartheid, people of color we're not given the same opportunities as white people and it's for that reason that most of the qualified people in the past were White.

Instead of bringing them back, shouldn't we rather give the skilled people of color, who were finally given an opportunity to I prove themselves when apartheid ended, a chance. Or at least people of all different races who are just finishing university in the present.

What do you think of these observations and do you think he's right or not. Tell me in the comments section and follow for more lifestyle news as it happens.
