Late last week Deputy President David Mabuza assured the country that government would turn the corner and fix Eskom, the Independent Media Political Bureau reported. A further update will be provided later today.

Part of the plan was to bring Medupi and Kusile power stations online soon. Spokesperson Sikhonathi Mantshantsha said there were repeat offenders: “Kriel, Tutuka and Kendal. It had warned that load shedding would be implemented over the weekend, as emergency reserves were depleted over the past week. This would ensure more energy generation capacity for the country. Mabuza also said that government would bring in Independent Power Producers to ensure there was energy security.” Three general managers have now been appointed to head the three stations. Eskom has been under pressure in recent times and this week it told the standing committee on appropriations that its debt has increased from R440 billion to R448bn. Eskom appealed to the public to use electricity sparingly. Mabuza said they wanted to make sure that Eskom reduces its debt and strengthen its balance sheet.. MORE.
