Greenpeace criticises Eskom for spending on parties

Environmental NGO, Greenpeace, has described the millions Eskom spent on its staff parties as ‘unacceptable’.

In a press statement, Greenpeace, points out that, “It is completely unacceptable that Eskom spends money on parties, while the people of this country face skyrocketing electricity prices, and more than 12 million South Africans still don’t have access to electricity.”

The organisation further states that the latest revelation by City Press about Eskom’s spending spree confirms the arguments Greenpeace continues to make, that as Eskom has become increasingly commercialised and biased towards producing electricity for energy-intensive industry, overall accountability has decreased.
