Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan says he cannot rule out the possibility that the national electricity system is being sabotaged. He has told the media at Megawatt Park in Johannesburg that Eskom has come up with a plan which will be updated weekly between now and the end of January with regard to making efforts to keep the lights on. Earlier Eskom announced that it would implement stage two loadshedding from nine o'clock this morning to ten o'clock tonight. The power utility says this due to a shortage of capacity on the national grid. It says rotational loadshedding will continue in the country until March next year. Gordhan explains. "We're not sure yet whether there's an element of undermining of the power system as well. Let's call it sabotage. You saw bits of it during the labour dispute that we had around June/July. A water pump would be shut down or another pipe would be shut down or ash wouldn't be removed, diesel couldn't reach the plant or the coal trucks couldn't get in. There will be a very intensive look over the next ten days, that's part of the action plan, to understand exactly what the nature of the problems are, which ones are easily fixable, which ones will take some time to fix and how do we arrange all of that in a proper way."
