The Star Early Edition - - BUSINESS REPORT -

ESKOM yes­ter­day an­nounced the ap­point­ment of vet­eran char­tered mar­keter, Johnny Dladla, as act­ing group chief ex­ec­u­tive with im­me­di­ate ef­fect. This fol­lows in­tense con­sul­ta­tions between the Min­is­ter of Pub­lic En­ter­prises, Lynne Brown, and the Eskom board to ar­rive at a pru­dent choice. Eskom has been with­out a chief ex­ec­u­tive since the bun­gled re­in­state­ment of Brian Molefe, while in­terim chief ex­ec­u­tive Mat­shela Koko went on leave fol­low­ing an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into claims of pos­si­ble con­flict of in­ter­est. Eskom board chair­per­son, Ben Ngubane, also re­signed in a huff two weeks ago. Brown ap­pointed Zethembe Khoza as the in­terim board chair­per­son un­til the cabi­net ap­proves new ap­point­ments. – ANA
