10:37 pm
a pricey alternative for the business. getting on like this and we were here to be effective in that if people right luckily we've got it you know right there we are selfish dining. when it comes to power but we did something that we didn't budget for keeping south africa's economy pumping will prove difficult if you can keep the power on i'm joined now by ronald energy and in this state in johannesburg south africa welcome to. africa mr child you have said south africa is have a crisis is a manmade crisis what do you mean by that yes that's correct there is a way. because a lot of mistakes including what. you said corruption. actually were. being gutted and i was quoting them technical problems all right
10:38 pm
miss a child hey you have had you've spent a lot of time working in government so you can speak from from from both positions essentially but in africa. are obsessed with with controlling sexes like energy supply but we see them in a case like this mismanagement should they still be able to have that much how is the solution in the case of south africa to privatized the sick ten allow the play is in. to be honest with you at the current blackouts reach out taking police right now in south africa as you can yeah and it's from a person the media does it. for. this has been ongoing for the week it is a good lesson actually to other african governments to say that what bud ever needs to be done by the private sector we need to start to open that door you need to take note of the fact that most of the african countries at the present moment in
10:39 pm
the sector as us that. unfortunately it is strategic in their own political says other than you know being sort of take ensuring that they promote what you can call universal access and promote the energy this. would be the. best suit that agenda we've got and. does it a problem is i miss a child and we've seen the south african government respond very strongly and lot of senior government officials the president himself reacting to this particular balance of power cats are you satisfied with what you're hearing from the politicians. not at all for exhibit a so it's a t. at the present moment really got government especially did religion but of religion is the source of the problem as opposed to death as the note of i.d.'s when you look at the press briefing of yes i do but it is so public and upright instead of
10:40 pm
them giving us what you can call it. and interventions that will let me do this issue is unique it was like they were giving us a lecture of how spawns problem are all about we are not looking for problems and try to be that it will be explained in detail it's from their public point of view we need still russia we need to say that we have to have knows where the problems are and because of. exit creeping at these other ten minutes we are focusing up on to ensure that you know it is situation is correct that they made it as a matter of days so they didn't give us anything or even the fourteen days we did talk about this idea is not helping us because in that footing did they say that they're still trying to understand their problems for me as an actor and then opinion that a should use yet does not give me a solution because i was doing at the minute a duck right and you know half of your face is actually in the darkness
