DURBAN - An anti-nuclear activist believes any nuclear deal between South Africa and Russia will be politically motivated.

Vladimir Slivyak leaked a secret document earlier this year on the nuclear agreement between Russia and South Africa.

South Africa plans to build between six and eight nuclear power plants by 2030.

While the Energy Department has yet to name a supplier to build the plants, there is speculation Russia is leading the pack of prospective vendors.
