Eskom chair resigns


State-owned power utility, Eskom, has announced that its embattled Chairperson, Zola Tsotsi, has resigned following the suspension of key board members, including CEO Tshediso Matona, earlier this month.

In a series of tweets, the parastatal said that its Acting Chairperson, Ben Ngubane, would take over Tsotsi’s role and that the latter’s decision was done in the “best interest of the company and country”.

“This step, the board believes, will ensure that the Eskom can focus on the challenges facing it and sets the company on a new path to regain the confidence of all stakeholders concerned in ensuring the important work of meeting the energy needs of the country,” Eskom said.
