TGerald Mngadi Mosselbay, Western Cape he turnaround at Eskom looked impossible when Brian Molefe took over and I feared for his reputation. He did it! He must be retained to complete the projects and plan the decommissioning of parked/mothballed power stations. Well done! Ephraim Sibiya Malelane, Mpumalanga Molefe deserves credit. He rescued Eskom from tatters. On the other hand, his move to Eskom has killed Transnet. I fully support Brian. David Hlabyago Limpopo To me, Brian, over and above his academic achievements, is just streetwise. He has the ability to interact and cooperate with his workers. I think we need him to share or train some of the CEOs who are failing the institutions they have been seconded to or deployed to run. I wish him all the success with his future achievements. Zwivhuya Seth Madi via SMS Brian Molefe did a great job. We even forgot that there was load shedding. He deserves a R6 million Christmas bonus. Monwabisi Gladman Mkwai via SMS Molefe deserves credit, if only for his loud and clear vision: minimise load shedding while catching up on the maintenance backlog.
When he was appointed CEO, he did not hesitate to appoint his executive; he was decisive and went for experience; he empowered the power station managers and held them accountable. Results followed. N Mabula via SMS Brian should take all the credit for fixing Eskom. George Ward via SMS After reading your Newsmaker article, I’d say: Luck has got nothing to do with it (almost like Tina Turner’s song about love). Good luck, Brian! And keep the home fires burning brightly, please. Gab Taukobong Ga-Rankuwa, Gauteng Luck has nothing to do with Brian’s ascendancy and success at Eskom. His CV and successes speak volumes. To even suggest luck reeks of envy and thoughtlessness. David Moino Atteridgeville, Gauteng I think credit must be given where it is due. Brian has done a tremendous job since taking over as CEO in terms of ensuring that there is no load shedding for such a long period. He has done well and deserves credit for ensuring the lights stay on. Keep up the good work, Brian Molefe! Elizabeth Ivy Smit Klerksdorp, North West Yes! Brian is the man. We must give him all the credit he deserves. It just shows that placing experts in the relevant positions pays dividends. Pure common sense, really.
