South Africa continues to rely on the energy that will be produced at the Mphanda Nkuwa hydroelectric plant to resolve the energy crisis it faces. The information was released this Tuesday afternoon, during a press conference, led by the High Commissioner of South Africa, who also said that negotiations with Mozambique are advanced. Shortly, the South African diplomat, Siphiwe Nyanda, said that his country still has no forecast for the end of the energy crisis it is facing. He repeated that there are negotiations with Mozambique for them to be part of the Mphanda Nkuwa Hydroelectric project, which should be the second largest national hydroelectric plant. “We do not have the same capacity as Mozambique has. That is why our country intends to be part of the Mphanda Nkuwa project. , according to the Ministry of Electricity, that in two years frequent power outages will be part of the past”, said Siphiwe Nyanda. To then argue that South Africa justifies its commitment so that in two years, frequent power cuts are a problem of the past”, he assured. The diplomat discussed economic and commercial relations between Mozambique and South Africa, assuming that the volume of South African investments in Mozambican territory has dropped significantly in recent years. “Trade between Mozambique and RSA is around 110 billion, but they are divided. Mozambique, perhaps, has 10 billion; there is a commercial balance between what Mozambique sells to RSA and what it sells to Mozambique, because it is natural. We export almost everything to Mozambique.” The High Commissioner of the South African Republic argues that Mozambique and South Africa have always had cordial relations, and for this reason, it was ensured that attacks against Mozambicans in that country were stopped. However, he warns that acts of violence against foreigners occurs throughout the Southern region.”South Africa and Mozambique have a historical relationship. Mozambique has contributed to the construction of the South African economy. There are Mozambicans who work in South African mines. We always maintain cooperation between leaders. It is not just the responsibility of South African rulers. It is also the responsibility of the Mozambican Government. We must work with the goals defined jointly.” According to Siphiwe Nyanda, there are a total of 400 South African citizens detained in Mozambican prisons, waiting to be extradited to South Africa.
