Church Cares: No To 25% Electricity Hike


The Justice and Peace Commission of the Southern African Catholic Bishops’ Conference has made a formal submission to the National Energy Regulator of South Africa challenging the application of Eskom to charge consumers 25% more.  The submission states that such a hike will have irreparable damage to the poor whose fundamental human right it is to have electricity.  It further states that the food and necessities’ prices will go up and the economy growth will be greatly hampered by such an increase.  It recommends a serious look at the efficacy of the Eskom management and the political will, or lack thereof, Eskom has portrayed in the past few years to ensure better life for all.
