Cabinet has approved the draft treaty between South Africa and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) on developing the Grand Inga Hydropower Project in the DRC.

Government spokesperson, Jimmy Manyi, says that the project has the potential to supply clean and cost effective hydroelectric power to meet the needs of the DRC and surrounding or nearby countries including South Africa.

Manyi further states that the project entails developing about 40 000 megawatts of hydropower on the Congo River in the DRC, which could be developed in several stand-alone phases.
