Mackay, Mr G to ask the Minister of Finance

With reference to the Mmamabula Power Purchase Agreement drafted between Eskom and the independent power producer, CIC Energy, that allowed for a potential electricity supply of 4 800MW and the proposed Mmamabula Energy Project emanating from the specified agreement, was National Treasury involved in the decision-making process responsible for aborting this project; if not, why not; if so, to what extent?


The Department of Energy, not the National Treasury, is responsible for developing the
Integrated Resources Plan (IRP) and making determinations relating to generation capacity required to enable procurement of power from the proposed Mmamabula Energy Project.
