Emergency powership plan to end load-shedding in South Africa — from fanfare to fiasco

The debacle surrounding South Africa’s bid to secure emergency power supplies has highlighted a dysfunctional energy policy that’s subjecting Africa’s most-industrialized nation to intermittent blackouts.

Since March, the energy department has identified companies it wants to provide almost 2,000 megawatts of electricity to the grid by August next year. But a losing bidder has alleged that the selection process was corrupt and sought to reverse it in court, environmental activists have raised objections and lawyers are at odds over whether ship-based power plants can be moored in the nation’s ports.

Look we need emergency power, but everything is flawed. And although Eskom is an seperate entity, they have to listen to the energy dept too.

I would push Eskom more independent.

Who knew, a process that is dubbed an emergency and critical being delayed.

The comrades must be scrambling for their bribes/find ways to defraud the government further before this project will move forward and cost us billions.... AGAIN

Nothing will ever happen in this country without the cadres getting their cut.

These guys couldn't buy avocados off the side of the road without a cadre inflating the price and then skimming it.
