Deputy President David Mabuza briefed members of the National Council of Provinces (NCOP) in Parliament, Cape Town, on efforts led by government to bring stability to the national power utility, Eskom, measures to improve governance and performance of State-Owned companies, and progress on the land reform programme.

Following the State of the Nation Address by President Cyril Ramaphosa, where he announced that government will implement measures that will fundamentally change the trajectory of energy generation in the country, the Deputy President has been delegated to lead the Eskom Task Team with the aim of developing a comprehensive approach to ensure the implementation of a turnaround plan to meet the obligation of providing electricity supply.
