  1. Very enlightening all your articles. Why is South Africa lagging behind the rest of Africa as far as renwable energy is concerned? Isn’t it time to lobby for a total ban on any new coal.mines? This is polluting tge air adding to climate change and many coal mines are situated on hood agricultural land even on banks of rivers . This is endangering the quality of water used for irrigation and domestic use. The restoration of land after coal mines is just not happening leaving the land in a pitiful condition.
