On Tuesday, February 12, the South African state-owned oil company PetroSA is negotiating with the energy giant Eskom about the supply of diesel fuel.
According to the acting executive director of PetroSA, the decision to supply fuel has been made to prevent power outages in the future.
As the representative of the oil company said, Eskom and PetroSA had begun a dialogue on the potential supply of necessary diesel fuel.
As it has been previously reported, Eskom, the only electricity supplier in South Africa, has resumed a Stage 4 load shedding for the first time in 2019.
Power outages are continuing for the third day in a row as the energy company is experiencing a shortage of funds.
South African president Cyril Ramaphosa was also angered by the situation.
