South Africans have reminded Fikile Mbalula of his promise that load shedding would be a thing of the past after December. But with Eskom issuing rolling blackouts throughout the festive season, the ANC-General has had to eat his words.

FIKILE MBALULA MAKES EMPTY PROMISES?

Speaking to eNCA’s JJ Thabane in May, Fikile Mbalula shocked South Africans by promising that the ruling party would end load shedding.

He said: “Load shedding – before the end of the year – should be a thing of the past.

When asked if his claim was another empty promise, Fikile stressed: “I can assure you, load shedding will be reversed, and it will be dealt with decisively.”

Fikile was reminded of his words when Minister of Electricity Kgosientho Ramakgopa revealed this week that blackouts would continue throughout the festive season.

Speaking to the SABC, the minister claimed that South Africans would experience “low levels of load shedding.”

WHICH DECEMBER?

On X, many users made fun of Fikile Mbalula’s wild claims.

@MolebatsiMasedi: “That happens when you trust clowns.”

@VernonDemos1: “They are all a bunch of liars and crooks. Nothing that they speak becomes a reality, just empty words with no meaning.”

@njreinten: “Mr FixFokol was talking about December 2025”.
