Analysts predict that economic growth, job creation and Eskom will be high on the agenda.

Cash-strapped power utility Eskom hit the headlines following an announcement by President Cyril Ramaphosa that it would be unbundled into three separate entities.

A few days after the announcement, Eskom started implementing load-shedding due to a lack of capacity.

According to Investment strategist from 274 Investment Manager, Nadir Thokan, the seperation of Eskom is a step in the right direction and will aid in recapitalising the power utility.
