Cut costs at Eskom to pay for diesel, says Roodt

South Africa's government says it's urgently looking into making funds available for Eskom so that the state electricity utility can buy the diesel it needs to fuel auxiliary power plants and prevent load-shedding from intensifying. Efficient Group chief economist Dawi Roodt believes the state can do this but says that the more logical approach would be for Eskom to cut costs as a way to fund the diesel purchases. Business Day TV spoke to Roodt for his take on the situation.
