The American company that designed the Kusile Power Station in Mpumalanga, received a blank cheque from Eskom that earned the designers R12 billion profit.

The power station was erected to show only a few weeks later that it was so poorly constructed that it had to come to a standstill, and now it will cost several billion Rand to make it deliver its full capacity.

Senior officials say the power station is not in full capacity and consultants firm Black and Veatch in the US delivers poor service.

In the midst of the situation, the consultants are apparently still being payed millions of Rand while the power station is a total failure and is now being investigated by Special Investigating Unit.

The useless power station already cost South Africa in total, about R340 billion, and observers say it’s not the end of paying.
