6 Dec Eskom facing operational challenges, with aging infrastructure - Gordhan
The public enterprises minister says Eskom is not doing well operationally. Pravin Gordhan's been speaking at a press conference currently taking place at Megawatt Park in Johannesburg - on operational challenges at the power utility. He says we are feeling the effects of state capture and the reality that the country's operating power stations are old. He says currently, demand is higher than what Eskom is producing - adding the units that are operating at the country's two new powers stations - are not producing enough.
