Listen to the interview in the audio below (and scroll down for quotes from it).

I liked the speech… it impressed a lot of people… it was powerful… as for Eskom… he referred to structural changes that need to take place… fiddling around… isn’t going to solve it.

David McKay, Editor - Miningmx

Eskom is the flywheel of the economy. It can’t be allowed to fail…

David McKay, Editor - Miningmx

People feel the economy is now in the right hands, but there’s still work to be done.

David McKay, Editor - Miningmx

He referred to ‘catharsis’ and ‘redemption’… he also tackled land expropriation without compensation in his speech.

David McKay, Editor - Miningmx
