South African Government Publish The Wrong Energy Plan

In an incident short of comedy in South Africa, the SA government published a wrong energy plan on Friday Business Day reports. The Energy Ministry discovered their mistake and rectified it but the wrong energy plan had already been in circulation.

According to Business Daily:

The department of energy says it published the incorrect version of the Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) in the Government Gazette on Friday morning and will shortly publish an erratum along with the cabinet-approved version.

A senior official said on Friday afternoon that an administrative boo-boo had occurred and was being rectified. The correct document in PDF form will also shortly be available on its website.

The problem came to light through an apparent contradiction in a clause dealing with nuclear energy.

The incident is similar to that of the late former President Robert Mugabe reading the wrong speech in the cabinet a move that caused a media and social media frenzy back in 2016.
