International Relations and Co-operation Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane, who has just been reappointed to the cabinet, specified the Inga project on the Congo River downstream of Kinshasa as one of the priorities of her second term in office.

In an interview she noted that South Africa had signed an agreement with the DRC last year to help develop Inga 3 which is intended to produce about 4 800 megawatts (MW) of electricity.

South Africa agreed to buy 2 500MW of this production. Inga 3 is envisaged as the first phase of a seven-phase project which would eventually produce nearly 40 000MW of electricity from the Inga Falls.
