The Eskom Disaster was caused by
Eskom - Engineering Council ( ECSA ) and The South African
Government - All the Top Names were involved and nobody took
any notice. Who is to blame, read my reports which go back to
to read all Letters
Metcalfe, the then MEC for Education and Dr Ben Ngabane in 1996.
We sent emails
to the State Presidents office.( see email dated 31st
October 2005 )
letters to Mr Tony Leon of the DA. and other Government officials
We sent Letters
and emails to the Presidents and Executive Officers of all the
Engineering Institutes in SA.
We sent letters
and had meetings with the Registrar of ECSA
Mr Paul Roux,and sent copies of my
findings to the President of ECSA ( Mr Bob Pullin )at that time, who stated that he
“could not concur with our findings”.
Copies of the
reports and presentations in 2005 to the late Dr James Hlongwane the
Chairman of NSTF ( founded in 1995 and achieved nothing to date )

Professional Engineers warned you all of this. The Only
Action taken was a Lawyers Letter from The Engineering
