Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan said on Tuesday that the department and Eskom understood how frustrating load shedding was.
He said that the ailing power utility would get it right in the next few years.
During a media briefing on the state of the power utility Gordhan said:
“We understand the frustration and we want to apologise for the additional burden we are placing on the people of South Africa,”.
Eskom has been implementing stage 4 load shedding due to a shortage of available capacity.
