“Eskom CEO Tshediso Matona told shocked business leaders he was praying the power utility infrastructure would not crash.

“Our senior managers pray that none of the current infrastructure breaks down. It could lead to a complete network breakdown,” he reportedly said.

Beeld reported that according to the Afrikaans Trade Institute (AHI) head Christo van der Rheede, Matona said the country’s power network was on the brink of a complete breakdown.

Earlier, the SA Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Sacci) called on its members to submit proposals on how to survive rolling blackouts.” http://www.iol.co.za/business/news/no-power-cuts-says-eskom-1.1804967#.VLbQLNKUfTo
