The presidency has confirmed that President Cyril Ramaphosa will issue an announcement within a few days on the government’s emergency plans to respond to the country’s growing power outage.
In his recent weekly newsletter, Ramaphosa acknowledged that the government had to respond boldly to tackling the country’s energy crisis.
He acknowledged that there were no easy solutions, but said the government was determined to explore some opportunities to ensure that there was enough electricity to meet the country’s energy needs.
Eskom’s failure to keep the lights on and its introduction of rolling eclipses have had a devastating effect on the economy.
Presidential spokesman Vincent Magwenya says the president will address the nation as soon as he concludes consultations with energy experts.
“There is a lot of work going on and run by the president that will result in a credible, tangible, measurable plan that will lead to a solution to the energy crisis where we can stabilize the Eskom network and try to avoid processes that delay this. The president is working with a number of stakeholders and non-governmental energy experts to come up with a plan that he will not be able to present to the nation until later. “
