Business Leadership South Africa says the latest round of load-shedding has been a rude awakening of how urgently government must deal with the country’s power crisis. The organisation’s CEO Busi Mavuso insists though that government does not have the resources or capabilities to solve the energy crisis alone and that the only realistic way open to stabilise supply and start growing the economy is to liberally involve the private sector in power generation. Meanwhile, economics professor Jannie Rossouw says that without load-shedding, the South African economy would have grown at one-percentage-point faster each year. Rossouw told the SABC that according to his calculations, the country has lost 1.275-trillion rand because of load-shedding.
