Following a minor restructuring after the resignation of Ben Ngubane, Eskom has appointed Johnny Dladla as the new acting Group Chief Executive with immediate effect.
Minister of Public Enterprises Lynne Brown announced earlier today that the decision was made after much deliberation with the board of the parastatal.
“I welcome the appointment of Mr Dladla as it will bring further stability to Eskom and its executive team”, said Brown.
Dladla’s career includes experiences with BHP Billiton and South African Breweries as well as a longstanding career in Eskom.
“Dladla has sufficient skills to excel in this role. He has 22 years of experience within the Eskom, 17 years invested in various non-regulated businesses and five years as Chief Executive Officer for Eskom Enterprises and its subsidiaries,” said Acting Board Chairman, Zethembe Khoza.
Dladla, who replaces the controversial Brian Molefe, is expected to promote good governance of the power utility and offer much needed stability to the organisation.
