Eskom CEO gives bleak outlook for load-shedding

Eskom CEO Andre De Ruyter has outlined the state of Eskom's electricity generation system, painting a bleak picture of load-shedding for the next few years.

"Openness and transparency are critical pillars of any organisation, even more apt for Eskom as a state-owned enterprise," said De Ruyter, who was speaking at the company's latest State of the System briefing.

How about he starts giving us positive updates about how many people they've fired for corruption and theft, and how many cases are in progress to recoup what they can. Nobody cares if the accused are found guilty and lose everything thereby having to live with nothing. They brought it on the country first, and then themselves.
What it does mean is that De Ruyter was serious about ending graft and gives us the feeling he's moving ahead.

“Ladies and gentlemen, Eskom has to reiterate that there will continue to be an electricity supply shortfall of approximately 4,000MW over the next five years,” he said.

“Capacity challenges will remain one of the key challenges South Africa will continue to grapple with.”

“The ultimate aim is to improve performance to reduce the risk of load-shedding. The enormity of this task cannot be overstated,” De Ruyter said.

My heart pumps lumpy custard for the enormity of a task that shouldn't have been in existence in the first place.

Why? What happens in 5 years? Aside from all the Apartheid era plants being 5 years old?

the government’s speed in bringing independent emergency power onto the national grid.
After Mantashe & friends stalled the latest round forever. I'd call that sudden panic more than speed

You expect one white guy to fix what 27 black CEO's declined to even try? LOL!
