#SONAdebate: Ramaphosa to be grilled on Eskom, Bosasa

South Africa

President Cyril Ramaphosa is expected to be interrogated by opposition parties in Parliament on Tuesday concerning the crisis at Eskom.

Despite assuring the nation last Thursday that Eskom will be split into three entities, one for generation, the other one for distribution and transmission, the crisis is not over at the power utility with load-shedding hitting the country.

On top of the list of questions from MPs in Tuesday’s debate on the SONA will be on Eskom.

The DA has already initially proposed that a special debate be held in Parliament on the crisis at Eskom. Eskom is sitting with a debt of R419 billion and Ramaphosa said Finance Minister Tito Mboweni will next week release details in dealing with the matter.

Other than Eskom Ramaphosa will be asked questions by MPs on the Bosasa scandal.

EFF leader Julius Malema said last Thursday they did not disrupt the SONA because Ramaphosa had met their demands on Bosasa.

This includes answering the questions they had and releasing the statements he gave to the Public Protector, Busisiwe Mkhwebane.

Ramaphosa is also expected to be asked questions on the crisis in higher education. This was after a wave of student protests across the country. One student was killed at the Durban University of Technology. However, students protests are still going on at other universities.
