Your input is immediately sent to government and must, by law, be individually acknowledged and considered. Had this been a petition, all input would be grouped as a single submission.

Expecting the tax-paying public to cover the costs for the sins of the State Capture architects is an anathema and is basically giving the message that nothing will change. Until some top-level prosecutions and convictions begin to occur, no thinking citizen is likely to entertain that option (to fund eskom's bail-out). My wife and I are pensioners, and are not in any financial position to be saddled with that Bill, and, as indicated above, would not even consider supporting it, even if financially able to. Eskom appear to be doing very little to bring to book the illegal power consumers (probably because these folk are mainly ANC supporters) and I object to being targeted because we, the registered, paying, clients happen to be an easy starting point for their fund-raising exploits.

Eskom needs to be run effectively as a business and not as a charity. The NEC is holding the country to ransom with their flawed and retrogressive ideas and their complete misunderstanding of economics.
