Poor reporting;

“Kendal power station reportedly on fire, mere hours after ⁦@CyrilRamaphosa promised better power supply in his #SONA2021,” Pretoria FM journalist Anton Meijer tweeted.

That fire happened yesterday afternoon - not yesterday evening after Cyril's empty promises.

Some Zim power station also went up in flames, what a stroke of bad luck.

Amazing how often the conveyor belts spontaneously combust...

Yet people laughed when uBaba had a fire pool installed, should have had those installed at all key national points, power stations, municipal offices, clinics, schools, taxi ranks, shebeens...

Ramaphosa added this will be addressed by a request for proposals for 2,600MW from wind and solar energy that will be issued in the coming weeks.
It takes weeks to issue a request for proposals to address a national crisis.
Why is it that the NCCC enact laws on the spur of the moment? :(

Despite these and other measures there will be an electricity supply shortfall of between 4,000 and 6,000 megawatts over the next 5 years, as old coal-fired power stations reach their end of life.

Ramaphosa added this will be addressed by a request for proposals for 2,600MW from wind and solar energy that will be issued in the coming weeks.

To solve 6k shortfall, they're aiming for 2.6k renewable? o_O
