Worldview: Is Nuclear energy good for Africa? Yvonne Katsande in conversation with Princy Mthombeni

Electricity consumption in South Africa has been growing rapidly since 1980 and the country is part of the Southern African Power Pool (SAPP), with extensive interconnections. Mostly coal-fired, and largely under the control of the state utility Eskom. Eskom supplies about 95% of South Africa’s electricity and over 40% of Africa’s. South Africa’s main coal reserves are concentrated in Mpumalanga in the northeast, while much of the load is on the coast near Cape Town and Durban.

Yvonne Katsande interviewed Princy Mthombeni on Worldview, who is a Nuclear Energy advocate.
