Ramaphosa and Mineral Resource Minister Gwede Mantashe are wooing thousands of delegates and potential investors.

The Investing in African Mining Indaba is the world’s largest mining investment conference.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed David McKay, Editor at Miningmx.

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
