The power utility says it will be in talks with interested parties first before the final result, saying it has postponed the announcement which was meant to be heard on Tuesday.

This comes after a number of stakeholders complain publicly saying some decisions were made without consulting parties.

Eskom Spokesperson Khulu Phusiwe says the government is well informed about the decision as it’s likely to effect in job losses.

“When we do meet with the unions, we’ll be informing them of the plans. The government is concerned as it’s likely to result in job losses.

Phusiwe added that the power utility will clarify its position on the matter, the termination of four power stations will not happen anytime soon.

“When Eskom releases the result, we’re going to clarify our position on this matter. The closure of power stations is not something that Eskom is going to take lightly and will not happen in the immediate future.”

In the meantime, Eskom confirmed that the outcome will be announced next week on Wednesday.
