Solving Eskom’s problems became increasingly difficult this week with Moody’s credit rating agency painting a bleak picture of the power utility’s financial results. However, something has to be done to remedy the situation. Corporate Collect has the answer to solving Eskom’s problems.
On Tuesday, 7 August 2019, Moody’s released a review of Eskom’s financial results. At the moment, Moody’s is one of three ratings agencies that ranks South Africa’s investment grade. It was stated in the report that increased support for Eskom has become necessary due to its unsustainable capital structure. It is said that Eskom’s government bailouts will likely amount to R122 billion by 2021. Moody’s called this a “deteriorating performance” and said a turnaround plan is imminent.
The news made the South African Rand lose 20 cents against the dollar as investors reacted quickly.

There are many challenges facing South Africa’s power utility. One is non-payment of electricity. Furthermore, this is fuelled by illegal connections that harm the economy of the country. It is a known fact that illegal connections may lead to overloading of the system that could result in failure of mini-substations and transformers. In recent news, the situation was spiralling out of control in Gauteng as many areas were negatively affected by power outages. Government appealed to communities to halt illegal connections since it causes repeated equipment failures in various areas.
Whilst acknowledging consumers who pay their electricity bills, Eskom said it is not fair that others are not paying their monthly bills. Also, not having electricity will negatively impact safety of the public at large.
