Watch as President Cyril Ramaphosa addresses the nation about the energy supply crisis in South Africa and government’s plans to address the problem.

The address, which will start at 8pm (watch it above), comes after six weeks of the worst-ever load shedding in South Africa’s history, caused by the combination of Eskom’s ageing and deteriorating power-generation fleet and an unlawful strike by employees.

Ramaphosa is expected to announce a raft of measures that will “open the floodgates for private investment in new generation capacity” to end load shedding.  — (c) 2022 NewsCentral Media
