South Africa has turned to Mozambique for additional power.
Minister in the Presidency, Khumbudzo Ntshavheni, says in the immediate term, Mozambique can provide 80MW and a further 1000MW over the medium term. It comes following deliberations between the Electricity Minister Kgosientsho Ramokgopa and the Mozambican Minister for Mineral Resources and Energy, Carlos Zacarias.
South Africa has been saddled with unprecedented load shedding since last year. The situation is expected to worsen as the country enters winter and demand jumps.
