The man behind the petition to sell the Northern Cape to Namibia

Is a petition to sell the Northern Cape to Namibia to pay off the Eskom debt a good idea?

A petition has been launched in which President Cyril Ramaphosa is urged to sell the Northern Cape (NC) to Namibia for R420 billion in order to erase the debt at State Owned Enterprise (SOE), Eskom.

In 2018, debt at the embattled utility reached R400 billion.

The petition was started by Capetonian, Aidan van Niekerk, on Sunday.

Martin Bester wanted to know more and decided to get Aidan van Niekerk on the line on Wednesday morning.

It can be found at change.org and is titled 'Sell Northern Cape to Namibia for R420 billion to erase Eskom's debt'.

However, how did Aidan get to the conclusion to sell one of South Africa's provinces to a neighbouring country?
