South Africa needs to urgently resolve its energy crisis to boost the struggling economy, Finance minister Nhlanhla Nene said on Friday.

"We are working hard to resolve the energy crisis, it's an urgent matter. If we don't address it the economy will choke," Nene said, speaking at a presentation by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in Johannesburg.
