Cyril Ramaphosa, the president of South Africa, refuted claims that his administration had failed over the country’s catastrophic power outages on Thursday, claiming that already-announced actions will ease system stress.

The state light utility Eskom’s aging fleet of coal power stations continues to shut down, resulting in the worst electrical outages in history, with a lot of households and businesses going without electricity for longer than 10 hours per day.

Despite numerous assurances made by the Ramaphosa administration to enhance energy accessibility through the restoration of faulty coal plants and the acquisition of fresh generation capabilities, prognosticators anticipate a potential exacerbation of outages as South Africa delves deeper into the wintry embrace of the southern hemisphere.

“In no uncertain terms, we are not idling on our responsibilities,” asserted Ramaphosa during an interactive session with legislators. He unequivocally advocated for South Africa to swiftly embrace emergency energy measures, drawing attention to the successful implementation of power ships in other nations as a commendable example to follow.
