• Voter paralysis

    With so much tilting voters against change, democratic reason is the loser, says Solly Moeng.

  • The power of perseverance

    True grit is a reliable predictor of who will achieve success in life, says Ian Mann.

  • It's the system

    The system sucks and it’s being used far too often as an excuse, says Mandi Smallhorne.

Cabinet approves power programme

Nov 22 2012 11:24
Sapa
Cape Town - Cabinet has approved the electricity distribution asset management turnaround programme and the start of the first phase of the programme.

This includes developing a business plan for the project, standardised refurbishment, maintenance, and process recommendations, acting government spokesperson Phumla Williams told media on Thursday, following cabinet's regular fortnightly Wednesday meeting.

"The programme will address the ageing electricity infrastructure, which forms the basis for the distribution of electricity to business and households," she said.

The programme would be implemented within the approved government structure and monitored by the Presidential Infrastructure Co-ordinating Council.

Eskom would be the lead entity procuring on behalf of municipalities.

This would ensure economies of scale in implementing the programme.

Williams said the project's costing had yet to be finalised.
