The Defend Our Democracy Campaign and a number of civil society organisations have called on South Africa’s Minister of Public Enterprises, Pravin Gordhan, to find urgent solutions to the electricity crises in the country. SABC News reports that during a meeting this week, the organisations raised the impact of the electricity crisis on the experiences of citizens, the economy, and the stability of the country’s democracy. They called for an urgent integrated and credible plan of action by government to address the problems in the short to medium term.
