Community Protest at Tumahole Eskom Substation Over Loadshedding Issue


The recent ruling by the Pretoria High Court has brought a glimmer of hope to South Africans plagued by the ongoing issue of loadshedding.

In a landmark judgment, the court has declared that load shedding violates human rights and has ordered Electricity Minister Kgosientsho Ramokgopa and Eskom to ensure that hospitals, clinics, schools, and police stations are unaffected by power cuts before the end of January 2024.

This case, brought by several parties including UDM, Action SA, the IFP, BOSA, and various trade unions, has highlighted the detrimental impact of load shedding on essential services.


Judge Norman Davis has specifically instructed the Minister of Public Enterprises, Pravin Gordhan, to take immediate action to protect these critical facilities from power cuts within the next 60 days.
