JOHANNESBURG, July 26 (Reuters) - South Africa’s ruling party wants greater private investment in struggling state-owned power utility Eskom, African National Congress Treasurer General Paul Mashatile said on Thursday.
Mashatile also said the ruling party was holding discussions about splitting up Eskom’s operations. He was speaking during a business breakfast on the sideline of a BRICS summit in Johannesburg.
