At the end of May, on the eve of a visit to South Africa by foreign ratings agency, the Hawks controversially invited the Minister for a visit to its offices following the issuing of a warning statement, and now, days before the MTBPS – and barely days after our return from the USA – the NPA makes this shocking announcement,” External link

But that does not seem to be an answer to provide for the gap of energy that Medupi and Kusile should provide.

At the end of May, on the eve of a visit to South Africa by foreign ratings agency, the Hawks controversially invited the Minister for a visit to its offices following the issuing of a warning statement, and now, days before the MTBPS – and barely days after our return from the USA – the NPA makes this shocking announcement,” External link
