Shouldn't the users pay for it instead of the government? In a country 
where business accounts for 80% of electricity usage, it would seem to 
me to be a sneaky way of getting the public to finance their own capital 
investments. Of course, if 80% or more of South Africa's tax revenue is 
from taxes on business, then that's not the case.
