The DA in KwaZulu-Natal rejects any attempt by the eThekwini Municipality to procure 940 megawatts of nuclear power, as reported by Bloomberg yesterday.

The idea that the municipality has either the funding or technical expertise to embark on this project is laughable and delusional.

The ANC run eThekwini Municipality has a long history of failed city-owned projects. From chicken farms, to uShaka Marine World and the Mosses Mabhida Stadium. Everything it touches, it either breaks or ends in financial ruin.

There is no way the DA will allow the municipality to preside over a nuclear meltdown (literally) in the city. They can’t even fix broken sewer pipes, how will they oversee the building and running of a nuclear power plant?

Therefore, should the municipality proceed with this ridiculous and dangerous project, the DA will not hesitate to approach the courts to protect the city from the mad scientists who wear ANC t-shirts.
