Then, amazingly, President Cyril Ramaphosa cut short his trip to woo investors in Egypt only to be given a lame excuse of "an act of sabotage."
Methinks it's a red herring to give the new incumbent a free hand to unbundle Eskom and sell off assets to the usual suspects. Neither would the bailout keep Eskom in operation on a solvent basis.
Everything must change. Ramaphosa needs to reshuffle cabinet and bring on board people who are fit for purpose such as the African People's Convention's Themba Godi to lead the ministry of public enterprises. State-owned enterprises need non-interference leadership from government and sound corporate governance to ensure a definite change of course.
Otherwise, SA risks further downgrades like the deaf-blind leadership downplayed the present-day crisis.
