Cape Town - Energy Minister Mmamoloko Kubayi on Tuesday pledged her support for the 3.7 GW gas infrastructure development programme started by her predecessor.
    
Kubayi’s pledge took place during her opening address at the Gas to Power programme at the African Utility Week in Cape Town on Tuesday.

She apologised for being reticent on details of her energy plans, but said “more will be revealed by Friday” when she delivers her budget speech in Parliament.
