Cabinet set on nuclear plan, with Eskom at the helm

THE Cabinet remained “resolute” about developing South Africa’s nuclear energy capacity, Public Enterprises Minister Malusi Gigaba said on Wednesday, and Eskom would be the operator of the government’s nuclear programme.

The minister’s unequivocal statement may help clear up confusion over the government’s intentions on nuclear energy, confusion that stemmed from conflicting signals given in recent times by various political leaders, officials and energy experts.

However, Mr Gigaba’s insistence that Eskom would be the operator of the programme will raise yet more questions…

(Contributor’s note: And on they go… Why doesn’t the Cabinet listen to some outside views  – have they forgotten about the PBMR and the Arms Deal?)
