Ramaphosa establishes Cabinet committee to keep watch on Eskom
President Cyril Ramaphosa has established a special Cabinet committee to be led by his deputy David Mabuza.
The committee will include the Minister of Public Enterprises and the Minister of Transport, reports EWN's Lindsay Dentlinger.
The President was responding to the debate on his State of the Nation Address in Parliament on Thursday afternoon.
He says there's no silver bullet to fixing the myriad of problems at Eskom, adding that the extent of the crisis has become apparent with the recent load shedding.
Ramaphosa maintains that unbundling the power utility into three entities is the best way to move forward.
