ANC Media Release, 6 March 2008

Eskom announcement on new developments

The African National Congress considers Eskom’s announcement of delays in the processing of applications for new developments requiring more than 100 kVA irresponsible.

Every effort must be made to ensure that the current problems in electricity supply do not negatively affect the building of projects of this nature. Such delays could undermine efforts to grow the economy, and slow the rate of important capital investment.

The ANC calls on Eskom to reconsider this decision, and to engage with stakeholders to ensure that there are no unnecessary delays in processing applications.
