More consultation needed for nuclear

The request for proposals by Minister of Energy, Tina Joemat-Pettersson, for the nuclear build programme will not proceed before further consultation with Cabinet.

In an interview 702's John Robbie, Minister in the Presidency Jeff Radebe said that the role of Eskom and NECSA (Nuclear Energy Corporation of SA) would be matters for consideration.
