The disruptive effects of load shedding on the Durban economy are becoming increasingly evident to the private sector. Lost productivity, disgruntled staff and customers, and failed deliveries are just some of the incurred costs by the private sector. While the Durban Chamber understands the necessity to load shed, in order to prevent a potential national blackout, Dumile Cele, the CEO of the Durban Chamber, believes that there is scope for the private sector to develop solutions, albeit in the short term, to help business survive the crisis.
