2010 power issues under the spotlight


Government spokesman Themba Maseko said Cabinet will make an announcement of the decision taken with regards to power cuts and the concrete steps that need to be taken by government to solve this problem.

Concerns have been raised that that the Gautrain and other 2010-related construction projects could be affected by load shedding.

The 2010 Local Organising Committee has also expressed concerns about the crisis.

The African Christian Democratic Party on Tuesday urged President Thabo Mbeki to inform the public of the emergency measures it will put in place “and what government plans to do with regard to the requirements in 2010”.
