Mantashe agrees to creation of engagement forum with renewables stakeholders

Mineral Resources and Energy Minister Gwede Mantashe met with renewable-energy stakeholders on Thursday in an effort to build trust, improve communication and reduce obstacles to the roll-out of renewable energy in South Africa. The virtual meeting proceeded despite the fact that the Minister had been self-isolating since he and his wife, Nolwandle Mantashe, tested positive for Covid-19 on July 14.
