President Cyril Ramaphosa has acknowledged that the current load-shedding crisis is a “calamity of enormous proportions” but has backed Ministers Gwede Mantashe and Pravin Gordhan after the leader of the opposition asked why the two Minister had not been dismissed After noting that the country was experiencing its worst-ever year for load-shedding, despite an assurance given by Ramaphosa in 2015 that the problem would be all by “forgotten” within 18 to 24 months, Democratic Alliance leader John Steenhuizen asked at “what level of sustained load-shedding” would the President consider firing the Mineral Resources and Energy and Public Enterprises respectively.
