Pretoria - French government representatives lobbying for South Africa’s nuclear build programme bid said on Wednesday that they are prepared to wait, but “of course we cannot wait forever”.

The French are expecting South Africa’s Department of Energy (DoE) to issue a request for proposals for the 9 600 MW power stations “any time from now”, French special envoy for the bid, Pascal Colombani, told reporters in Johannesburg on Wednesday. 

France is one of the potential bidders for the nuclear build programme, alongside Russia, China, the United States, and South Korea.
