Another Eskom Boo-Boo

Another Eskom Boo-Boo

12 June 2019 11:31 AM

Guest: Bronwyn Parker | Senior Associate at Werksmans Attorneys

The South African government is being sued for failing to crack down on air pollution
emitted by state owned enterprises. A fleet of 12 coal-fired Eskom power plants, a Sasol
oil refinery and coal-to-fuel plant are located at a site referred to as the Highveld
Priority Area due its EXTREMELY poor air quality.

Eskom has surprisingly admitted to a certain amount of wrongdoing - fessing up to the
fact that hundreds have died because of the air quality they are responsible for. A
refreshing admission, but a peculiar one.
