How Saps plans to alleviate load shedding threats to 2019 elections
On Tuesday, Eskom CEO Phakamani Hadebe told 702 presenter Clement Manyathela that load shedding could end within the next six months.
With South Africa's general elections scheduled to take place on 8 May, there are concerns that load shedding could interfere with the voting process.
South African Police Services national spokesperson, Vish Naidoo says the issue has been flagged with Parliament's police portfolio committee.
We are in very close consultation with Eskom on this matter to ensure that we put measures in place to either mitigate or totally overcome load shedding as a possible threat to elections.Vish Naidoo, National spokesperson - SA Police Service
If there are any plans to do load shedding on the day of elections, I think the times can be deviated to accommodate that. This is one of the proposals we've made to Eskom.Vish Naidoo, National spokesperson - SA Police Service
