Presidency on support to Eskom

27 Mar 2015

Eskom is receiving support from government

President Jacob Zuma has been kept fully briefed about the developments at Eskom and the attempts being made by the Minister of Public Enterprises, Ms Lynne Brown and the Board to meet the energy challenge facing the country.

Eskom is receiving full support from the Department of Public Enterprises, the Presidency and government as a whole to improve operations and implement the energy security plan. Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa leads the government support efforts.

The Presidency wishes to encourage all stakeholders to provide the needed support and to focus on assisting Eskom and the Department to take the country on the route to energy sufficiency.

The Presidency will not entertain the rumours and gossip about the operations at Eskom as that will not assist the process at hand, the imperative task of implementing the urgent medium term plan to enable the country to manage the energy shortages.
