Pravin Gordhan has promised the state intends to hold those responsible for Eskom's shortcomings accountable.

The Public Enterprises Minister confirmed that there will be litigation against those responsible for the 'poorly designed' Medupi and suggested that those, as far as corruption was concerned, might soon 'find themselves in orange uniforms'.

Monday had seen the nation plunged into Stage 4 loadshedding after Eskom 'lost' seven power units.

Gordhan assured the public that the blackouts would be kept to a minimum while order was being restored, saying:

"The board will ensure, as will government itself that the experience of load shedding will be as short as possible and ensure it does not become a permanent feature for SA."

Briefly.co.za reported earlier today that the minister had revealed that the power utility was 'technically insolvent' and would not make it past April 2019 at its current rate.
