RISE Mzansi Gauteng Premier Candidate, Vuyiswa Ramokgopa, alongside RISE Mzansi Volunteers and leaders, held a picket at Eskom HQ to address ongoing power issues in Gauteng. The community of Ivory Park has faced months without power, ignored by current leadership. Ramokgopa highlighted the urgent need for new leaders who will prioritize job creation and end rolling blackouts. She criticized outgoing Premier Panyaza Lesufi for failing to address essential community needs and pledged to support places like Bathabeleng Children’s Home, currently without power, impacting their care for abandoned babies and orphans.

Ramokgopa urged South Africans to vote for new leaders on May 29, promising a future with reliable electricity and economic growth. Detailed demands include restructuring Eskom, tackling corruption, and transitioning to decentralized energy. For more information, download the complete media statement above.
