The country continues to battle various stages of load shedding.
This as Minister Ramokgopa still awaits the President to give him ministerial authority to implement some of the plans around the ailing power stations.
“I don’t assign functions to myself. It’s the President and I am more than confident that he will soon be making that announcement. I have had engagements with Minister [Gwede]Mantashe and Minister [Pravin] Gordhan as a collective and individually. So, but I did say before that even before the assignment and mandate there is a lot that can be achieved like diagnostic reports from the power stations.”
