The cabinet has taken the decision to re-establish an “energy war room”, which will tackle the country's energy crisis. The war room is being set up by Deputy President David Mabuza, and will include finance minister Tito Mboweni, public enterprises minister Pravin Gordhan and energy minister Gwede Mantashe.

The team will deal with challenges to SA's energy supply, as well as issues of governance and the lack of financial management at Eskom.

Peter Attard Montalto from Intellidex joined Business Day TV with his view on how significant the move is.
