Eskom names acting chairman

NEWS

April 1 st, 2015

Eskom chairman Zola Tsotsi has decided to step down after criticism for his handling of continual power outage experienced by the country for several months. For some, his departure will help to regain the confidence of investors and the public. An investigation early March tried to determine why the country, the most industrialised of the continent, is left without enough power to meet demand. Apparently outages are being caused by the delay in erecting new power plants, and maintenance of older power plants that has not been properly carried out. Load shedding still continue to costs the country between R18 billion and R36 billion. Ngubane was named Eskom’s acting chairperson.
