Before Covid-19, Eskom was regarded as the single largest risk to SA’s economy. With the numbers of infections down for now, hopefully forever, Eskom has reclaimed its throne. 

Weeks of back-to-back moves between Stage 2 and Stage 4 – breakdowns, conveyor belt issues, stuff in Zambia – it all seems quite literally dark and bleak – and everyone is looking for someone else to blame.

There were matriculants studying in the dark. There were people who needed electricity for their home medical equipment. Some couldn't warm milk or food to feed infants. 

Helping to understand our latest plunge into darkness, and to give some rhyme and reason to our anger in this bumper edition of SA Money Report, are regulars – Fin24’s Lameez Omarjee and Jan Cronje. 

Fin24's aim with this weekly series is to take complex issues and break them down in a way that gives listeners an insight into a world that can often be impenetrable, either because of really dense figures, ratios and percentages - or because you need to navigate obscure financial terminology. 

New episodes of the show, hosted by Fin24 deputy editor Ahmed Areff, will be released every Friday.
