Forum says electricity increase of 12.74% will have devastating effects on economy

# The Activists and Citizens Forum says the electricity increase of 12.74-percent in combination with the increase in fuel prices will have devastating effects on the already crippled economy. The forum predicts more businesses are going to close their doors, with the cost of living and unaffordable food affecting the poor the hardest. The Activists and Citizens Forum’s spokesperson, Dennis Bloem says the ANC Government has totally failed to fulfil the promise of 1994 for a better life for all. Bloem says in reality life is getting worse under the current government.
