Kgosientsho Ramokgopa's first year as electricity minister

President Cyril Ramaphosa appointed Kgosientsho Ramokgopa as electricity minister in March 2023, and his first year in office has been fruitful.

While Ramokgopa made various promises he couldn't keep, Eskom's energy availability factor (EAF) has shown marked improvement, and the power utility hasn't implemented load-shedding for 75 days.
 
Today might be LS, though they might just recover, but power alert is not looking good
 
I have had no load shedding for 3 months

Same.

The new Minister of Elections made sure load-shedding was kept at bay until after 29 May. We will see it return with a vengeance now that winter is coming.

Take out your pack of candles and paraffin lamp and keep it ready :(

Disagree
The electricity stations are running smoothly and Jhb is on a reduced load which is helping our grid stay healthy
This new guy knows what he is doing
Worth R3mill a year any day, that is pocket change compared to what it was costing the country per day during load shedding
 
So is the electricity minister a permanent post now?

How many days without loadshedding before Ramokgopa considers his job done?

If there is no load shedding I am happy he stays permanent
