With South Africa plunged, once again, into stage 4 load-shedding, President Cyril Ramaphosa is adamant that everything is being done to end the blackouts. Ramaphosa says that the state is engaging with Eskom to put an end to the electricity disruptions.
With South Africa facing yet another day of stage 4 load-shedding, President Cyril Ramaphosa is adamant that the state is working with Eskom to put an end to the electricity cuts.
The president says he still receives daily updates on the grid and that stability at the power entity is a priority.
According to Eyewitness News, Ramaphosa has noted Eskom's attempts to restore electricity to the Cahora Bassa hydroelectric system in neighbouring Mozambique.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier that experts are skeptical of the excuses concerning the load-shedding, including that 1 000 megawatts had been lost when the Mozambican plant had been hit by a cyclone.
Nevertheless, the president has confirmed that the South African National Defense Force is on standby to aid Eskom transport equipment needed to repair damaged infrastructure.
Back home, Eskom is rectifying other supply disturbances caused by the collapse of generation units at coal-fired stations.
