Statement on the Cabinet discussions on energy of 21 September 2022

Yesterday, the Cabinet held its scheduled virtual meeting, to discuss a number of pertinent issues that will be outlined in the comprehensive Cabinet Statement to be released at a later stage.

Cabinet also discussed the problem of load-shedding that has over the past week disrupted the economic activities of businesses and inconvenienced households in the country.  

Cabinet expressed regret that intermittent load-shedding is happening at the time when government is vigorously engaged with the interventions announced by President Cyril Ramaphosa in July 2022 to overcome the surmountable energy crisis facing the country.   

Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan presented a briefing on the capacity of Eskom and a progress report from the Technical Committee of the National Energy Crisis Committee. Cabinet is still deliberating on these reports, and following further interventions announcements will be made.   

Meanwhile, Cabinet remains committed to resolving the issue of energy security in the country and welcomes the concerted efforts being made by government and stakeholders to find a permanent solution to end load-shedding.
