Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown has continued the restructuring of Eskom’s board by appointing 4 more interim members.
According to Brown, the parastatal’s 9 interim board members will prioritise coal procurement, contract management and other matters.
Brown also acknowledged the tough times which the power utility has undergone as of late referring directly to allegations of State Capture and poor governance which are under investigation or before the courts
Yet Brown remains positive in the new appointments.
Brown has reappointed Zethembe Khoza as the acting chair and all those on the board will remain interim members until their names have been taken to Cabinet for approval.
The minister says she took longer than expected to appoint a new acting CEO Johnny Dladla because she wanted to make sure that any candidate wasn't compromised in any way.
She says a number of issues at Eskom are still under investigation, so she's restricted in terms of what she can say at this point.
