The Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) of the Reserve Bank has once again decided to leave South Africa’s repo rate unchanged at 6,75% and prime interest rate the same at 10,25%.

Last week’s NERSA decided to allow a further above-inflation tariff hike.

President Cyril Ramaphosa says the financial and operational challenges faced by power utility Eskom are not caused by the Independent Power Producer (IPP) programme.

Eskom on Thursday warned of a "severely constrained" power system due to the unavailability of some of its generating units.

Collin Matjila has been appointed as the acting Chief Executive Officer of Eskom as of 1 April 2014, the electricity utility said.
