Following the State of the Nation Address by President Cyril Ramaphosa that government will implement measures that will fundamentally change the trajectory of energy generation in the country, the Deputy President has been delegated to lead the Eskom Task Team with the aim of developing a comprehensive approach to ensure the implementation of a turnaround plan to meet the obligation of providing electricity supply.

In his capacity as Special Envoy to South Sudan, the Deputy President will also brief the NCOP on South Africa’s continued peace facilitation efforts towards the implementation of the Revitalised Agreement on the Resolution of Conflict in South Sudan.
