Speaking to Ray White on The Midday Report, EWN Reporter Gia Nicolaides said the acting CEO Phakamani Radebe outlined operations, some successes, as well as the challenges Eskom is facing.

He said yes, Eskom has major coal shortages. Last week they were talking about seven out of the fifteen power stations, this week they are saying it's one less. There are only six power stations that are experiencing coal shortages and that they have contingency plans in place to deal with this.
