Yesterday, after a week of sporadic load shedding, President Ramaphosa delivered his State Of The Nation Address (SONA).
In it, he outlined some of his plans to restore Eskom to financial and operational health and to get its restructuring process moving.
There was also mention of an upcoming announcement of who won the bidding for 2 000MW of emergency power to help curb load shedding.
Unfortunately, Eskom seems to operate like Betelgeuse. Say its name three times and everything goes to hell.
The day after SONA wrapped up, Eskom’s coal-fired Kendal Power Station in Ogies caught alight.

According to MyBroadband, a fire broke out on one of the conveyor belts removing ash from the power station this morning.
Eskom responded to the event in a tweet:
Eskom can confirm that a fire broke out on one of the conveyor belts taking the ash out of the Kendal Power Station this morning. The fire was extinguished and there were no injuries. The belt will be replaced today. The station continues to operate as normal. @SABCNews @eNCA

I think this response in the comments sums up how we’re all feeling:
