SA's electricity crisis | Eskom has no budget remaining to purchase diesel

Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan says PetroSA is providing around 50 million litres of diesel to Eskom. The utility has burned through its budget for diesel and can only make purchases again from April next year. Gordhan says a permanent solution is being sought. Eskom uses large amounts of diesel to run open-gas cycle turbines that mitigate power cuts. We discuss this further now with energy analyst Chris Yelland. #dstv403
