Will Eskom's turnaround strategy be effective?

Eskom spokesperson Khuli Phasiwe chats to 702’s Nikiwe Bikitsha about the utility’s turnaround strategy and whether there’s a decline in the demand for electricity.

JOHANNESBURG - Eskom says it intends taking over the collection of electricity revenue in municipalities that owe it money.

It's building new plants to improve power supplies as it ramps up electricity generation to plug a shortage that forced the utility to implement controlled blackouts early last year, which dented economic growth.

Spokesperson Khulu Phasiwe says the utility is working hard to maintain existing plants, in a move to help avert future blackouts.
