Despite explosion at Eskom World Cup still on
SHOOT: South Africa's state-owned energy utility has reported an explosion at the sulphur dioxide plant of their Lethabo plant. Apparently there is no reason to fear that during World Cup games - during the height of South Africa's winter and thus electricity demand - electricity to the city of Johannesburg might have to be diverted to keep the World Cup stadiums lit. No comment on the possibility of further explosions.
