BRICS – China Offers Large Donation To Help South Africa Deal With Load-shedding

When asked if load shedding would end by December 2023, Ramokgopa avoided making any firm commitments but stated that extra capacity would be achieved, taking the country from 6000 to 8000 megawatts.

Kgosientsho Ramokgopa, South Africa’s Minister of Electricity, has denied that the South African government is sidelining other BRICS member countries following the completion of multiple trade agreements that will see the country’s load-shedding situation eased in the coming months.

According to Ramokgopa, while SA is working with other governments, President Cyril Ramaphosa’s administration’s major priority is to guarantee that the country acts quickly to resolve its energy crisis.

In July, Ramokgopa stated that SA will require more than R100 billion to avoid importing power in order to overcome the energy situation.

Ramokgopa stated that because China has also experienced load shedding in the past, it is best positioned to assist SA in resolving its problems.

According to him, the donation does not imply that SA is compelled to repay, but rather that China is helping a fellow BRICS member.

The value of the goods on the way to South Africa is estimated to be R167 billion.
