The power stations, based in Limpopo and Mpumalanga, respectively, are part of the Coal Baseload Independent Power Producer Procurement Programme. 

Nicole Loser, attorney in the Pollution and Climate Change Programme at the Centre for Environmental Rights, talks to Classic Business Breakfast with Moneyweb about why the organisations are seeking access to these documents and what the implications would be if these two projects went ahead.
