DA Asks Government For Clarity Around Electricity Exports

The Democratic Alliance (DA) has called on Eskom to “put South Africa first” and for the government to come clean on its electricity exports to other countries.

The party also wants Parliament to urgently reconvene to debate and find solutions to the several crises in the country including power outages, unemployment and the rising cost of living.

The DA’s public enterprises shadow minister Galeb Cachalia said he’s written to ministers Pravin Gordhan and Gwede Mantashe asking them exactly how much electricity is being sold to other countries.
