JOHANNESBURG – President Cyril Ramaphosa said resolving the power crisis is high on his administration’s priority list.

He addressed various civil society organisations at the Johannesburg City Hall in his capacity as the African National Congress (ANC) President on Saturday.

Ramaphosa recently appointed Electricity Minister – Kgosientsho Ramokgopa to fast-track the improvement of the country’s power crisis.

He said supporting the ailing power utility is high on the government’s agenda.

“We have embarked on a number of measures to address the load shedding and the day before yesterday (Thursday) we had an announcement that the electricity availability factor has now increased in a number of power stations, and this is largely because of the work that we announced in our energy action plan, that we are now going to pay more attention and to focus on this, and to this end, I even appointed the Minister of Electricity,” said Ramaphosa.
