Cape Town - Concerns about radioactivity from the site of an earthquake-stricken reactor in Japan could affect decisions on future nuclear plants in South Africa, the energy minister said on Tuesday.

"It has a bearing in the way in which we make decisions, in the way in which we make policies but also in the way we construct nuclear power plants," Dipuo Peters told an African power conference.
