SABC News | 16 July 2022

The Climate Justice Coalition – a coalition of South African trade unions and grassroots, community-based and nonprofit organisations – is demanding the energy crisis be dealt with. They plan to march to the Office of the Presidency on Nelson Mandela Day to hand over a petition calling on President Cyril Ramaphosa to implement an emergency renewable energy plan to end rolling blackouts (load shedding), and to replace Mineral Resources and Energy Minister Gwede Mantashe and otherwise fix the Department of Mineral Resources and Energy (DMRE). Climate justice campaigner Alex Lenferna who is the Co-founder and secretary of the Climate Justice Coalition joins us.
