Pravin Gordhan did not mince words at today’s media briefing to address operational challenges at Eskom.
The Public Enterprises Minister began by saying the power utility had been “one of the centres of state capture” and that this had largely contributed to the sad state of affairs alongside outdated power stations.
The Minister explained that while Eskom has 47 000 MW in installed capacity between 9 000 and 11 500 MW was lost due to repairs being done on generating units that had broken down.
