JOHANNESBURG - Deputy President David Mabuza, says Eskom must be supported to ensure it develops sustainable infrastructure to meet the country's energy demands.

"Eskom must remain a central pillar to South Africa's plans of reigniting the economy further impacted negatively by COVID-19 pandemic," he said.
Mabuza also condemned the continuing farm killings.
Mabuza says the criminal justice system must do it work.
