Mkhize said political parties must put aside their differences to confront this issue.
“We are not fighting factional battles. We are fighting against load-shedding. South Africans are deliberately put in the dark by the incompetent leadership,” she said.
Mkhize said Eskom CEO Andre de Ruyter and public enterprises minister Pravin Gordhan must be held accountable for their role in the crisis at Eskom.
She also laid the blame at the feet of the ANC, saying it failed to act decisively on the issue.
“You would expect the ANC to call for action against the CEO of Eskom and Gordhan as people who consider themselves to be leaders of society,” said Mkhize, adding that the youth league is equally responsible though its input has been largely ignored by the ruling party.
