Eskom says the probability of loadshedding remains low until January the 13th - but it's warned that this could change if there are heavy rains. The utility says closure of businesses over the holiday season will take some pressure off the power grid. However, it says heavy rain in December and January could impact on coal handling and feeding to the boilers, with a consequent effect on generation production. This could in turn increase the possibility of loadshedding. Eskom's also warned that local outages could occur due to techincial faults rather than loadshedding.

Economists are predicting that the Reserve Bank could raise interest rates again in May next year, according to a Reuters poll. The poll was taken among 25 economists after the Reserve Bank caused a surprise last month with a 25 basis points increase of interest rates. This was the first such hike in nearly three years. Commenting on the poll, economists have pointed to possible rand depreciation and inflationary increases in administered prices, particularly electricity tariffs. Eskom proposes to raise electricity tariffs by 15 percent a year for the next three years

The British pound has risen after the Prime Minister, Theresa May, survived a no-confidence vote in parliament. May won the support of 200 Conservative lawmakers, but 117 voted to oust her.

British Prime Minister Theresa May has survived a no-confidence vote by MP's from her own Conservative Party, but she's lost the support of one-third of her colleagues, signalling further battles over Brexit. May won the backing of 200 Conservative MP's but 117 voted to oust her -- and only after she promised to step down before the 2022 election. May still has to win the backing of the UK Parliament for the divorce deal she agreed with the European Union last month. She has promised to hold that vote by January 21. May heads to Brussels today for an EU summit, where she will press European leaders to give her concessions to help sell the Brexit deal to a majority of British Mps.

SAFM 9AM NEWS BULLETIN

Former SABC COO Hlaudi Motsoeneng says the public broadcaster is technically insolvent because its current management does not know how to do business. Motsoeneng was fired from SABC after being found guilty of putting it into disrepute for holding a media briefing in which he criticised the public broadcaster. He now wants the SABC to release his pension payout.
The case is in the High Court in Johannesburg where the SABC wants an interim interdict until the conclusion of the trial which is seeking to recover a total of 21-million-rand from Motsoeneng. The SABC is arguing that the pension fund should continue to withhold the payout, saying Motsoeneng was dishonest for taking the 'Success Fee' of 11-point-5-million rand he was not entitled to when he was COO. This was in relation to the Multichoice deal. Motsoeneng says the public broadcaster needs a competent board and management...

The State has filed papers in the SCA, opposing the application of Omotoso and co-accused to have the presiding judge in the High Court in Port Elizabeth, Mandela Makaula, removed from the case. Omotoso also wants multiple sexual offences charges against him quashed. Yesterday, the High Court postponed Omotoso's trial to February the fourth 2019. Legal analyst Lebohang Mokhele says the case might have major complications if the SCA rules in favour of Omotoso...
