With analysts blaming the continuous electricity blackouts that have taken place in the country since 2008 for the lower than expected economic growth rate, South Africa continues to suffer from a deep energy crisis. 21 years after the introduction of democracy and continuous rule of the African National Congress, the political mismanagement can no longer be hidden behind a smokescreen of words blaming the past. Technical reality overtakes politicians’ talk. The emerging industrial nation of South Africa joins the world of developing countries, where power cuts are often a daily reality.
