coal quality load shedding

Coal quality causes load shedding so Human Dictate, please note load shedding is only temporarily over.

Today, December 14, 2019, I return to my  topic, aimed at encouraging enlightened thinking, a movement that will bring economic stability, back to the world.

Coal quality load shedding
Human Dictate

Why today?

The typical December electricity load shedding is over for the year, it will not be the system dictate that controls the mindsets of the public, why do I label the general masses as public, because the mind that listens to the media propaganda, is not human, the mind that waits for every update on the level of load shedding is controlled.

I have had to listen, indirectly, to all the media reports, President Ramaphosa’s surprised reporting, ‘sabotage’, mechanical break-downs, rain, all little issues that keep the mindsets trapped in a very static stage, never really disturbing the mindset,  hidden in all his messages, is that there is ‘light at the end of the tunnel’. 

When mindsets are united, it is not necessary for me to follow social media, every family member and friend will automatically update me, I however do listen to every news broadcast, and on two occasions, I have heard two different comments, not attached to any leader, not attached to any Eskom official, and herein rests the evil that we are trapped in.

“The high levels of coal dust in the Coal Supply, causes the coal to be too wet.”

“Eskom has been instructed to investigate and identify those Coal Suppliers who are supplying inferior quality Coal.”

Pretty simply, since the Free Market Economy was allowed into South Africa, our quality of Coal supplies have deteriorated,

Coal is probably one of our top export products by volume, exporting to China, India, Japan, and none of these countries are going to buy ‘coal dust’ from us.

There is not a Coal ‘user’ in the world, that does not understand the calorific value (Kj/Kg) of coal, quite simply, the higher the grade of coal, the more energy per ton it will produce.

I am of the opinion that Eskom is buying, whether with the knowledge or not, Grade 3 coal, at Grade 1 coal international prices. In my opinion, Eskom is only producing 50% of the Kilojoules, per ton, that they would be producing if they used Grade 1 coal.

This poor Coal quality causes load shedding

From my trusted Wikipedia source, I provide the Chemical Composition of Coal.

Chemical composition:

Chemical composition of the coal is defined in terms of its proximate and ultimate (elemental) analyses. The parameters of proximate analysis are moisture, volatile matter, ash, and fixed carbon. Elemental or ultimate analysis encompasses the quantitative determination of carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, sulfur and oxygen within the coal. Additionally, specific physical and mechanical properties of coal and particular carbonization properties

The calorific value Q of coal [kJ/kg] is the heat liberated by its complete combustion with oxygen. Q is a complex function of the elemental composition of the coal. Q can be determined experimentally using calorimeters. Dulong suggests the following approximate formula for Q when the oxygen content is less than 10%:

Q = 337C + 1442(H – O/8) + 93S,

where C is the mass percent of carbon, H is the mass percent of hydrogen, O is the mass percent of oxygen, and S is the mass percent of sulfur in the coal. With these constants, Q is given in kilojoules per kilogram.

Why does President Ramaphosa never give us the assurance that Eskom is only using prime Grade 1 Coal, and that we are not paying international prices for our Coal?

Human Dictate, as already published a conversation topic , #SowetoPleasePayElectricity, and I summarise the topic as follows:

The manipulated exchange rates, has once again  divided our Country into two groups, all those who benefited by the Rand exchange manipulated through depreciation, and those of us, who were financially punished, by the ‘cost of living’, the importing of fuel at manipulated depreciated rates, the importing of everything through the global Free Market, at manipulated depreciated rates.

South Africa would not be exporting their prime coal, at manipulated exchange rates, our Iron Ore would not be leaving the country at manipulated exchange rates, South Africa’s Cost of Living, would be acceptable, and we would all be able to pay for Electricity, that would be cheaper for all.

Human, it is time to put on your thinking cap, the Free Market needs to be removed, we need to return to Mercantilism.

Hi Steve,   Herewith a personal post to you, I will not share with others, you may however do so if you wish.

I am launching the book in Soweto on November 13, 2019, 13:00 Uncle Toms Hall.  It will be done as part of Interactive Struggle Theatre, where the public will be able to ask either of the Homeboys questions, you may not be able to attend, but maybe a few of your followers would like to ask relevant questions that helps us move from the System Dictating to us, to us Humans Dictating our lives.



Extract from the manuscript, Human Dictate 

Minority rights, and the ‘socially political correct’ norm, that develops over the two hundred years after 1789, peaking by 1989, is the power that that allows the wealth of the world, the global-market, to control the governments of the western world, and their African Colonies.

This control, is enforced through the Western Economic World, who ensures that the western ‘socially political correct norms’, by excluding any dissenter, from participation, in the western economic world.

I use two examples of the obvious, regarding the control structures, as follows:

Steve Hofmeyer, South African Actor, Singer, Author, Activist, is branded by the elite liberal South Africans, as racist, uncultured, uncivilised, narrow-minded, the western economic world withdraw all sponsorship, entertainment facilities do not allow him to perform, media give no positive support, the western economic world, punish him, more severely than any court could ever punish him

Israel Folau, a devout Christian, a young man born in Australia, to parents from the Island of Tonga, in comparison to the South African situation, his parents would be from one of our Native Villages, and he would be considered a black player, that would be protected by our New Democracy and Constitution.

He was the highest paid Australian rugby player, some 600 000 Australian dollars per annum, as a Christian, with 250 000 followers, mainly Islanders, he tweets the following message, based on what he claims is his religious belief;


Drunks, Homosexuals, Adulterers, Liars, Fornicators, Thieves, Atheists, Idolaters,



Within two days of publishing this tweet, Israel Folau’s sponsorships are cancelled, his contract is terminated by the Australian Rugby Union, there is no form of punishment, that can be more severe, than the termination of a contract of that value.

His contract is terminated, due to the inclusion of the term Homosexuals, the world condemns the use of the term Homosexuals, as it defines a specific minority group.

I would probable qualify for five of the other terms used, however, none of the other groups, would be considered as a minority group.

I have no personal anti-homosexual sentiments, however, I am a critic of the punishment that the Global-market has handed down to Israel Folau, my criticism is based on my belief that the white ‘capitalist’ economy, has used their wealth, generated since the 15th Century, to protect their wealth, and the weapon that they have used, is the protection of minority rights.

LATIPAC a look at the changing economic democracy


HOMEBOYS present Latipac a look at the changing economic democracy, they Entertain, they Challenge, they Educate.

Our first challenge, was how to analyse the existing world?

We find the solution in Latipac, and magic sounding word, that till now, did not have a definition,  our analysis of the changing economy, is nested in our definitions as follows:

Latipac, terminology and definitions used,

Latipac:    Definition:    Persons or institutions that accumulate wealth, without the latipac-generators receiving an equitable share.  

(Origins Cedric de la Harpe University of Knowledge) 

Latipac-generator:    Definition:    Persons cultivated to be a slave to the Latipac, once recruited, will religiously generate wealth for the Latipac, never questioning, for fear of loosing their status, that separates the latipac-generator,  from the poverty group.

VOLKSTROTS nood Afrikaner en Afrikaan Nasionalisme

Volktrots, wat het met die Afrikaner se Volkstrots gebeur, hierdie Engelsman, gaan probeer om sy vraag in Afrikaans te antwoord, en sy bes probeer, om Lembede, Sobukwe, en Mandela, se skrywe te vertaal, (met permissie) om sy teorie, deur hulle woorde, te verduidelik.

VOLKSTROTS Afrikaner en African Nationalism
VOLKSTROTS Afrikaner en African Nationalism

Ons begin op April 06, 1959, dit is toe ek nog, my erfenis op van Riebeek dag gevier het, op hierdie dag, is die PAC gestig, en hul leier, Robert Sobukwe, se toespraak, behels die volgende kommentaar;

Ons wil beklemtoon, dat die vryheid van die Afrikaan, beteken die vryheid van almal in Suid-Afrika, die Europese (blanke) ingesluit, want slegs die Afrikaan, kan die vestiging van ‘n egte demokrasie waarborg, waarin alle mans, burgers van ‘n gemeenskaplike staat sal wees, en sal as individue leef en regeer word, en nie as eiesoortige deursnitgroepe nie. ”

Oor die afgelope twintig jare, het ons verskei kommentaar gehoor, oor wie, of wat, ’n Afrikaan is, ek will graag van Sobukwe se toespraak, sy 1959 definisie uitsit.

‘Ons mik, polities, by die regering van die Afrikane deur die Afrikane, vir die Afrikane, met elkeen wat sy enigste lojaliteit aan Afrika verskuldig is, en al die wie bereid is, om die demokratiese bewind van ‘n Afrika-meerderheid, te aanvaar, word beskou as ‘n Afrikaan.’ 

In 1959, was Sobukwe se denke, dat ons almal as individue sou leef en regeer word, en dat ons almal as Afrikaan, kon beskou word.

Van my hoek af, sou BEE en Quotas, nie deel van die 1959 Afrikaan demokrasie gewees het nie, my vraag is, wat het toe verkeerd geloop?

In 1948, was beide the Afrikaner en die Afrikaan Nationalisties, albie met volkstrots, wat, van die 1955 begin verdwyn het.  Wat het met die Afrikaner Volkstrots gebeur, wat het met die Afrikaan volkstrots gebeur.

Die antwoorde lê in die skrifte van Anton Lembede, 1946, en ek haal aan uit die Long Walk to Freedom, geskryf deur Nelson Mandela;

Soos Lembede later in die koerant Inkundla ya Bantu, ‘n Afrikaanse koerant in Natal, geskryf het:  (Translation by Cedric)

Die geskiedenis van die moderne tyd is die geskiedenis van nasionalisme. 

Nasionalisme, is getoets in die stryd van die mense en die vure van die geveg, en is die enigste teenmiddel teen vreemde heerskappy, en moderne imperialisme. 

Dit is om hierdie rede, dat die groot imperialistiese magte, koorsig poog om alle nasionalistiese neigings, onder hul vreemde onderdane te ontmoedig, en uit te roei; daarvoor word enorme bedrae geld bestee aan propaganda teen nasionalisme, wat as ‘smal’, ‘barbaar’, ‘ongekultiveerde’, ‘duiwels’, ens. afgemaak word. 

Sommige uitheemse onderdane word deur hierdie sinistere propaganda gedupeer, en word gevolglik die gereedskap of instrumente van imperialisme, waarvoor hulle diens, deur die imperialistiese mag, die hoogste geprys word, en hulle word oorheers met voorbeelde soos ‘gekultiveerd’, ‘liberaal’, ‘progressief’, ‘breedbandig’, ens.

Die Engelsman se gedenke hier is dat daar gereeld van sekere van die Afrikaane groepe, sodra hulle nasionalisties neigings toon, sal die media hulle as barbare en ongekultiveerde uitroep.  Van die Afrikaner se kant af, is Steve Hofmeyer die ‘vreemde onderdaan’, wat niks meer verkeerd doen nie, as om sy nasionalistiese neigings, volhou.

Ek lees verder van die Long walk to Freedom, waar Mandela sy 1949 houding uitsit’

Lembede se sienings het ‘n akkoord in my getref. Ook ek was vatbaar vir paternalistiese Britse kolonialisme en die aantrekkingskrag om deur blankes beskou te word as ‘gekultiveerd’ en ‘progressief’ en ‘beskaafd.’ in Afrika. Dit was wat almal van die regent tot Mnr. Sidelsky vir my wou gehad het. Maar dit was ‘n illusie. Soos Lembede, het ek die teenmiddel gesien as militante Afrika-nasionalisme.

Het Nelson Mandela, sy 1949 houding teen imperialisme voort gebou, sou die ANC 1949 Program van Aksie en die Handves van Regte, die Afrikaan se volkstrots gevestig,  en gou, sou die Afrikaner se volkstrots, sonder enige nood vir verandering, laat saamsmelt, en soos Eerste-Minister, Macmillan op February 03, 1960, voorspel het, “South Africa will go down in the annals of history, as the first English Colony, to give the African Nationalist self-determination” sou Suid Afrika vandag ’n volk met volkstrots wees.
