A suspect contract blew the fuse

 

22 March 2019 

The treasury in late 2017 blocked the extension of a suspicious contract that possibly could have prevented this week’s crippling load-shedding. It was found not to have met public procurement requirements.

Eskom is now investigating new irregularities picked up in a new attempt to restore the contract and to stave off load-shedding.

This week was the first time Eskom had to institute load-shedding overnight, which required President Cyril Ramaphosa and Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan to intervene. Load-shedding happens when Eskom is unable to meet the country’s energy demands and eases some of that demand by switching off the electricity supply to different areas on a rotational basis.
