It was clear during Tuesday's debate on President Cyril Ramaphosa's State of the Nation Address (SONA) that opposition MPs wrote their speeches while the country was experiencing rolling blackouts.
Ramaphosa was slammed in the National Assembly on Tuesday following Eskom's announcement that there would be more load shedding this week. "This morning's headlines say that you were 'shocked' by Stage 4 load shedding.
How can you be shocked, Mr President? You were there all along," DA leader Mmusi Maimane said, referring to Ramaphosa's term as deputy president under former president Jacob Zuma.
