JOHANNESBURG - We need decisive leadership to steer South Africa out of its electricity crisis.
That's according to Professor Themba Maseko from the Wits School of Governance.
Maseko says President Cyril Ramaphosa has a chance to cut poor-performing ministers in his next Cabinet reshuffle.
"We need some kind of a stronger sense from the president that says I want you to deliver," said Maseko.
"I mean, he was supposed to be in Davos raising money and profile the country to investors and he had to cancel that trip because there is an Eskom crisis.
"Yet we have two ministers who are supposed to make sure that these energy problems are resolved as a matter of urgency.
Maseko said Ramaphosa is in a position where he has majority support in his party.
"Which gives him the latitude to begin to be more decisive and act much quicker and make sure that people are held accountable.
"And if somebody is not delivering, they must be held to account," Maseko said.
