Electricity Minister, Kgosientsho Ramokgopa was speaking as there is concern that Stage 8 load shedding may be implemented by August, which is the peak of winter.

He says that Kusile is not the only power station making progress in terms of its generation capacity.

He says that engineers are working around the clock to ensure that there are no unplanned outages.
