ANC leadership will be discussing the nation's failing state-owned entities at its last NEC meeting. Spokesperson Pule Mabe says that President Cyril Ramaphosa's overview will center on the most pressing issues.
The ruling party will be debating the dire situation facing both Eskom and South African Airways over the next two days.
Addressing media representatives ahead to the National Executive Committee, spokesperson Pule Mabe commented:
“Today is a normal NEC meeting. This is the last NEC of the year. On the agenda of the NEC is the political overview, the report of the national working committee ... which, of course, reflects on the state of the organisation."
President Cyril Ramaphosa will be presenting a political overview to the top ANC structure:
“The political overview is looking at a number of topical issues of national and international interest, whether it’s the state of our SOEs, including our own relations with other countries both in the region and beyond the region.”
But the details of the meeting will only be made public to ordinary South Africans following a media briefing next week.
Briefly.co.za reported that Stage 2 load-shedding had taken hold over the course of the weekend, with Eskom announcing it is likely to continue into the week.
