Zuma, 72, who was hospitalised for two days for fatigue and tests before taking a week off, made a similar commitment at his inauguration for a second term last month. He said Tuesday that “the economy takes centre stage” in efforts to combat poverty, inequality and unemployment 20 years after the end of apartheid. “This situation calls for a radical transformation of the energy sector, to develop a sustainable energy mix that comprises coal, solar, wind, hydro, gas and nuclear energy.”
