SA, DRC to sign new ‘Grand Inga’ agreement

South African President Jacob Zuma and his Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) counterpart Joseph Kabila will preside over the signing a memorandum of understanding (MoU) relating to the so-called ‘Grand Inga’ hydropower project.
South Africa’s Presidency said in a statement that the MoU, which would be signed on November 12 by the energy ministers of the two countries, could open the way for the crafting of a formal treaty.

Such a treaty was expected to create the framework for the implementation of the much-anticipated project and would include defined project-execution milestones.

A technical committee, comprising senior officials from both countries and led by a Ministerial Commission, would oversee the finalisation of the treaty.

South Africa’s power utility Eskom and the DRC’s Société Nationale d'Électricité Société a Responsibilité Limitée National, or SNEL, would also enter into an agreement that would facilitate the execution of the project.
