Minister of Mineral Resources and Energy Gwede Mantashe must go, says DA

Minister Gwede Mantashe continues to be a handbrake on our economy and our electricity generation sector. Yesterday, President Ramaphosa again indicated his support for increasing the threshold for licencing of generation plants beyond the arbitrary 10MW limit Mantashe seems so determined to implement.
